Here is a link to A Free Download of My Thanksgiving Song Be Thankful For What you've got with lyrics, Guitar Chart,and a link to Spotify and the You Tube Video. Happy Thanksgiving. I lead praise very week at the Prayer Group and at church and I see the Transforming power of not pnly just being positive, but connecting with the Holy Spirit by praising the Lord. Often folks come in tired and weary from the weight of the day and they leave refreshed by Thanking and Praising God.On top of that it is a lot cooler to be a thankful person than be a impatient crabby one.God Bless and hang in there.

Below is the promo release from Lion Heart
A group who definitely live up to their name – given that their recordings are so obscure, they were lost souls from the very start! Yet there's also a genius here that should have made them huge – an inherent tunefulness that clearly shows a love of The Beatles, Hollies, and a handful of other Brit groups – but delivered with an edge that's more like early Who or Creation – and by that last reference, we mean both the fab 60s British group, and the later 80s label with the same name!
These tunes are fantastic little gems – catchy, but not commercial – charming, but never cloying – and often driven by some exceptionally strong basslines at the bottom, which works great with the warmer vocal harmonies and jangly guitars.
Titles include "Dare To Surmise", "Love I Won't Admit", "Look At Me", "Things That Are Important", "Diamond Head", "Livin The Way I Want To", and "Trashcan Throne" – and the CD also features a few live tracks, and some bonus material too – 26 titles in all, by a group who hopefully won't be lost souls any longer!
Not only is this the first time the music of the Lost Souls has been available since that cassette, our Lion Productions edition is the first release for many additional Lost Souls cuts, including alternate versions of key tracks like the insightful ‘Things That Are Important’ and ‘I’m Falling’ (the closest to a hit the band ever had), all taken from the original tapes and carefully mastered. Seven bonus tracks highlight the work of Lost Soul's main songwriter Denny Carleton (one-time member of The Choir, and more surprisingly, punk legends the Pagans); selections by The Choir, Moses, Milk and Carleton, many in all possible low-fi glory, recorded on various 4-Track devices, ranging from power-pop to grimy garage.
•Whopping 32-page booklet has the full story of the band and info on the recordings by Carleton •Includes a multitude of unseen photos from his personal archive •Carefully remastered from the original tapes (+ the occasional post-Lost Souls 45 single) •”One of the great lost groups of the 60's.” —Option Magazine
