Lou Stallman and Bob Susser (Think) capture the age spectrum between teenagers and adults in this campy, uplifting and somber melodrama set to words and music.

"Once You Understand" hit the Billboard Top 40 chart at position #23 in 1971. In 1990 the single had a small resurgance when it was sampled in the 1990 song "Mr. Kirk's Nightmare" by 4 Hero.

I picked this record up at the 2001 WFMU summer record fair for two dollars.
