People Make The World Go Round
Composer: Thom Bell / Linda Creed

People Make The World Go Round was performed, as an instrumental, over 20 times by the Garcia/Saunders band and Legion of Mary between August 1974 and April 1975. On the Garcia/Saunders recording the writing credits are Bell / Epstein. The Epstein refers to Stephen L. Epstein, the widower of Linda Creed, who presumably inherited the copyright in the song. Writing credits on most other recordings are Bell / Creed.
