The Music Of Mr. T
It was inevitable, but it is finally time to pity the fools.  And by that, we mean Scott and Jason forced themselves to listen to 2 albums Mr. T released back in the mid-eighties, and now deserve your sympathy. Grab yourself a big glass of milk and listen to the boys jibber jabber as they wade through the magnificence of Mr. T's "Mr. T's Commandments" and also Mr. T's "Mr. T's Be Somebody (Or Be Somebody's Fool)" Twitter / Facebook / Insta: @RetroOrdinaire
