Today’s forgotten oldie only made it to #45 on the hot 100 in 1972, but it was still a great song. The vocals are excellent, the production is very well done, and the lyrics are well written. Unfortunately, Gladstone’s “A piece of Paper” covered a lot of political issues and made a lot of people upset. The song meant well, but perhaps a song against abortion doesn’t have a chance to be a big hit. Regardless, the song is well worth listening to, even though it’s truly a forgotten oldie.
