1969 October 26: New York Philarmonic Hall
Hello, oh yeah, I'm glad to see you, glad to see you. They tell me it's a full house it's full.
This is a good time to introduce you to the heart beat of our organization, the pulse of everything that we do: it centers around the drums and of course if you think about that really seriously you know that your entire life is centered around your heart beat, and that's rhythm is it not'
This song was ' eh 'I was told to sing by Miriam Makeba and she is my dear friend, and it is a prayer those of you who are fans of hers will remember this song.

Westwind blow ye gentle
Over the shores of yesterday
My sun is brown and over
Here within my heart they lay they lay

Westwind with your wisdom
Gather all the young for me
Black cloud hanging over
Nest your bosom strong and free

Got each gallon water is plane
Got each gallon water is plane
Cos I am the soil from which they came
I am the soil from which they came

So Westwind with your splendor
Take my people by the hand
Spread your glory sunshine off
And unify my promised land

Unify us don't divide us unify us don't divide us
Unify us don't divide us unify us don't divide us
Unify us don't divide us unify us don't divide us
Unify us don't divide us

Westwind with your splendor
Take my people by the hand
Spread your glory sunshine out
And unify my promised land
Unify my promised land
Unify my promised land
