The Best Of The Foundations. The absolute BEST collection of The Foundations greatest hits, featuring all 8 of the original members. Expensive when you find it, but well worth the price.

This song is by The Foundations and appears on the album Digging The Foundations (1969). Where in the worldDid I do it wrongMy little chickadeeYou still belong hereIn my arms, no matter what you do(My little chickadee, I still love you). Where in the worldDid I let you downMy little chickadeeWhen you were aroundThe world was sunny, seems funny now(I lost you darlin' but I don't know how).

Foundations of Burden from start to finish is lush and rhythmic. Filled to the brim with crunchy guitar tones, groove-inducing rhythms and a slow yet staggering sense of dynamics in song composition. Everything on Foundations of Burden is bigger than its predecessor, Sorrow and Extinction-the riffs hit harder, the vocals convey more emotion, the bass is thicker and the drums are more bombastic.
