the best songs ever
But this live performance deserves its own post, which I couldn't get before from the crowded bandwidth or somethin'. Oh well, The Dead had to make a second start too!

The Beatles officially broke up in 1970 and did solo albums. George did All Things Must Pass, which featured the Apple Jam Session and My Sweet Lord. Paul did this one:

Circa 1970 was a peak year for British rock, it seems. Also from the newly-exited land, this under-rated classic of psychedelia, Play in Time by Jethro Tull





Blues were my favorite color, till I looked around and found another song I felt like singing.

From the same album, Benefit, "With You There to Help Me"





and this one:

The best song from the well-known British band of the same era, The Moody Blues.





Whichever side of Brexit you're on, this song might resonate now. "Forever without a hope of coming home!"

This song is one of those that demonstrates how the qualities of great classical music are the same as those of great classic rock.

I like Curtis Mayfield's music, but this one especially because the intro makes me laugh.

Stoned love
Stoned love, oh yeah

A love for each other will bring fighting to an end
Forgiving one another, time after time doubt creeps in
But like the sun lights up the sky with a message from above
Oh yeah, I find no other greater symbol of love

Yeah, don't ya hear the wind blowing?
Stoned love, oh yeah
I tell ya I ain't got no other
Stoned love
Oh yeah

And life is so short, put the present time at hand
Oh yeah, and if you're young at heart, rise up and take your stand
And to the man on whose shoulder the world must depend
I pray for peace and love, amen

Oh, can't ya feel it?
Stoned love
I tell ya I ain't got no other
Stoned love
Oh yeah

If the war 'tween our nations passed, oh yeah
Will the love 'tween our brothers and sisters last?
On and on and on and on and

Don't you hear the wind blowing?
Stoned love
Oh yeah
I tell ya I ain't got no other, whoo, whoo
Stoned love
Can't ya, can't ya, can't ya, can't ya, can't ya feel it?
Whoo, whoo, stoned love
Oh yeah stoned, stoned, stoned, stoned

Stoned love
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Whoo, whoo, stoned love, oh yeah...

Thanks. What it says to me is that the owner has disabled the video for use on other websites, so reposting will not change that; but you can click on the underlined portion of the notice here, and it comes up in another window on youtube.

The honors I personally bestow on this one include: best of 1969. Best of the sixties. #3 on my all time rock list. Greatest high experienced listening to a piece of music. Most requested piece on my own radio program. In part, source of my slogan.





Witchi Tai To gimera oranika oranikia hey ney hey ney no wah What a water-spirit feeling springin' round my head, makes me feel glad that I'm not dead.

Jim Pepper took this chant from his native people, allegedly used while smoking peyote. Jim was a well-known jazz artist and joined here for this group Everything is Everything by other excellent performers. The melody swirls around the chant. It has been covered many times by other artists.

Here is an especially charming version and video from the early 1980s:

Part 2: "Jim's music keeps all our spirits alive!"

I think the bigger hit by Steam "Na NA Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" was partly inspired by this song.

It's great to hear this strange hippie erotic soft-rock confection again. Mellow-fuzzy. I like the mild funk topping and the meandering organ bubbles. I think Dicey and Paprika covered this also.

To be honest, I'd have to admit that this was probably my favorite song of the 70s as I was living them--

Well, there was this one that was actually a good song.
