Let us not talk falsely now / 1833





















"... another song we did about in the year of 1833, and I think it is pretty true still today, if you can dig it."

Listen.

True in 1833, true in 1933, true in 1970, and doubtless will be true in 2033...

I'm thick as a plank -- wasn't that song written by Dylan? I don't get the 1833 reference.

Where is the photo taken?

robin andrea, Dawn, Solitary Walker, Dale and TaraDharma -- Thanks for your comments [and the
stone(o)from you, Dale]!

TaraDharma -- My guess was that Jimi Hendrix referred to 1833 in reference to the days of slavery. I Googled “1833” and found this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_Abolition_Act_1833

I noticed that the day that the Slavery Abolition Act was signed in England was exactly 130 years, to the day, before Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech on August 28, 1963.

The photo is of the industrial section of Grant Street in Bellingham, heading south toward downtown.
