Bummer Of A Summer


John Holt "Up Park Camp"

While John Holt's "Up Park Camp" may sound like a cheery summer tune about a fun sleep away camp up on the Magician Lakes in Michigan, it's actually a somber meditation on the notorious Up Park Camp prison in Jamaica. Gee, that really took the wind out of your sails now, didn't it. Of course you could always make up your own premise for the song, like a breezy afternoon at Wicker crafting camp in rural Arkansas. Ah, that's much better. I love wicker!
