When "American Pie" was released, or some time shortly after, radio stations also played an "annotated" version. The music would break and a narrator would explain whatever reference the song was making. I haven't heard this since it played in my middle school art class in 1972 (the teacher had the radio on while we were making linoleum prints, very cool), does anyone know if this was released as a single or otherwise exists?

Yeah, Ken, that was kind of a hostile takeover of BS&T by David Clayton Thomas-never knew how that happened, but the resulting group was terrible. Tunes from
the original band and it's progenitor, blues project would be a good antidote.
