For Sunday: Three Dog Night sings Laura Nyro’s “Eli’s Coming”

Laura_Nyro_-_Eli_and_the_Thirteenth_Confession


Laura Nyro wrote some dynamite songs in the 1960s.

This is one of them.

This is a performance of one of them by Three Dog Night on a 1969 TV show, with the kinds of video  blandishments we thought were neat in those days.

Eli’s coming!

Hide your heart, girl!
