We Never Really Learn About Ourselves

Over 30 Years ago I grew up Listening to a Album "About Ourselves" put out by Classroom Materials, a record label out of Great Neck, NY. Me and my sister used to laugh at one of the tracks "Right Thumb Left Thumb" for some strange reason all the time. This album remained in my collection and I stared transferring Vinyls one day and decided to bring this wonderful set of Poems and short stories into a different dimension for 2012. I hope you enjoy this rendition of a lost classic because I can't find any information about this album besides the original Liner notes which aren't complete.
