What does 40 years look like?

According to biblical myth, the ancient Israelites wandered the dessert for 40 years in their trek from Egypt to the Promised Land. (Shameless plug: not this 'Promised Land'.)

But if you want to see what 40 contemporary years (1967 to 2007) look (and sound) like, Giovanni Rogriguez spins two versions of the Foundations hit, 'Baby, Now That I've Found You' - from then and now.

Same words, same music. Yet each rendition evokes its time.

Wow -- thanks for the post, Martin. I think you got this story right. Two different takes, but each appropriate for its time.
