"Fuggets" : THE WEEKEND MIX
Remember that record collection I purchased about a month ago? Well, as Smokey once expressed, it's really got a hold on me. This week, I've been dipping my ears in the psych and pop waters of the 60s and 70s and realizing that there are people out there who will sacrifice their first born for a vinyl copy of Twink's solo debut. Sadly, I'm starting to understand.
That Twink record, along with some other fine gems like the Blossom Toes, a record called "Ultra Violet's Hot Parts" which is essentially The Left Banke, and Steve Howe's first band Tomorrow, put me in this "Nuggets" kind of mood.
So that is why and this is this because.
SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:
"Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" may not be what you think of when you think Pink, but it is essential and yes, my favorite Pink Floyd record.
In keeping with yesterday's post, how about Fairport Convention? That first album with Judy Dyble is almost boogie. And how about that psych version of "Chelsea Morning?" In comes Sandy Denny, quite possibly the most beautiful voice ever, and BOOM...sea shanties and Celtic workouts.
I wish I could find the interview, but I am pretty sure when Andy Partridge was asked if there were any songs he wished he had written, he said, "Autumn Almanac" by Ray Davies and "I Can't Let Maggie Go" by The Honeybus. Trust me.
And speaking of Ray Davies, did you know that he produced The Turtles' album "Turtle Soup?" Did you know that it was a great record that even sounds like The Kinks at times?
Enjoy, I hope.
