Originally done by Bobby Womack & Gabor Szabo in 1970, but George Benson's version in 1976 took the track onto another level and gave it fresh impetus, also George took it to a mass market, it also broke him from being a Jazz funk guitarist into a Soul based artist, from the Breezin album?

It really captures the idea and feeling of a warm summer breeze.?

This Masquerade" is a song written by Leon Russell. The song first appeared on the B-side of the single for Russell's 1972 hit "Tight Rope". The song has also been recorded by many other artists, such as Helen Reddy, The Carpenters, Shirley Bassey, Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77, No Mercy, Robert Goulet, and Kenny Rogers. Possibly the most notable version of the song was a top-ten pop and R&B hit for jazz guitarist/vocalist George Benson, who recorded it on his 1976 signature album "Breezin'". He had used his vocals infrequently on songs earlier in his career, notably his rendition of "Here Comes The Sun" on the "Other Side Of Abbey Road" album. Benson's recording of "This Masquerade" reached number ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and number three on the Hot Soul Singles chart. Benson also won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year with his version of the song. This channel is dedicated to the classic jazz music you've loved for years. The smokin' hot, icy cool jams that still make you tap your feet whenever you hear them . . . Cool Jazz is here!

This record was released in early summer of 1976 and it filled the air with this magical tune amazing?

    • I suspect that @Mic Drop, the original poster of this topic, didn't expect it to turn into a discussion about interpretation of Bible prophecy. But it might be interesting to bring this up elsewhere. If you'd like, I (or you) could start a new topic under one of the JW forums. I just noticed something in that Daniel passage for the first time today.
    • (Daniel 11:43) . . .And he will rule over the hidden treasures of gold and silver and over all the desirable things of Egypt. And the Libʹy·ans and the E·thi·oʹpi·ans will be at his steps. I guess this assessment is a bit controversial...
    • The tactic of labeling things as fascist, nazi, racist, communist, socialist, when they are not, is a real thing. And I suspect this kind of tactic has been used on all sides of opposing ideologies. It's curious however, that G. Edward Griffin only pretends to be giving a source for the initial quote that he "reads from a book" to make it appear more credible, but doesn't provide specifics about the source. Yet, it's exactly the kind of projectionism and reverse counter-blaming that has now been openly admitted to have been used against communism and third party political groups, etc., as a useful tactic. The John Birch Society has specifically been caught making up such things so that persons like Ronald Reagan and others would repeat them without question. There's a pretty good discussion of this supposed quote on stackexchange. The rest of this post contains only excerpts from that discussion: https://skeptics.stackexchange.com/questions/44039/was-this-communist-party-directive-from-1943-genuine Was this Communist Party Directive from 1943 genuine? It is attributed in the video as "In 1943 the following directive was issued from party headquarters to all communists in the United States" however I have been unable to source this document, if it exists. It is claimed as false in They Never Said It : A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, and Misleading Attributions wherein the following passage appears on page 18: 25 I'm not sure that we can provide better sources than what you have already found. The quote sounds made up and is only spread by biased, far-right organizations who don't supply sources for it which could be followed up on. On the other hand, you have two professors of history and political science saying that it is almost certainly fake, and a reference to a letter from the Library of Congress which couldn't find such a directive. – tim ♦ May 16, 2019 at 9:24 2 Agreed with @tim, you're not gonna get a better source than the sources that claim it as bunk. Furthermore, that book was from 1989, and in the 30 years since then no one has ever produced the actual document. The reasoning in the book is also sound. – DenisS May 16, 2019 at 19:24 9 1943 would have been a little early to try and harness rabid anti- nazism and anti-anti-semitism in the US, would it not? There were nazi parades in all the US up to 1940. Henry Ford had written 'The International Jew' and wasn't ostracized. – bukwyrm May 16, 2019 at 19:42   It seems quite incompatible with recorded history. One expert verdict of "made-up" is already in the question. Proving a negative is not easy. But there is plenty of circumstantial evidence to support it. The language used, the political connections drawn and most important: the date alawys used in this unsourced propaganda from anti-communists lessen the probability and plausibility severely.

      In 1270 The Catalan monk Raymundus Martine wrote the name Jehova....in his book PUGIO FIDEI, this is the oldest found version of the name of Jehovah, complete with vowels inserted.
      Raymundus Martini was an expert on the Hebrew and Latin languages, and was acquainted with the Jewish scriptures.
      The Hebrew name of God with only the vowels JHVH, (note that both V and W were used in Hebrew) dates from UR of the Chaldeans, where archaeologist Delitszch found a cuneiform tablet with the name of God, on the Hebrew related. The origin of that clay tablet must have been about 2200 BC. So in ancient Babylon the name of Yahve or Jehovah, the later God of the Israelites, was already known at that time.
