This time, it’s Daily Mix 1! Clearly drawn from all the 60s music I play.
The Flying Burrito Brothers, “Hot Burrito #1.” “There's nothing new that can be said about dirt.”
Terry Reid, “Rich Kid Blues.” Supposedly, Jimmy Page asked Reid to join “The New Yardbirds”. Reid declined, but recommended Robert Plant and John Bonham.
The Rolling Stones, “Down Home Girl.” Stones Meet Brill Building (Jerry Leiber was a co-composer), faux Southerness appears.
Sly & The Family Stone, “Life.” From one of their lesser-known albums that wasn’t a hit, but it stands up well.
Bonnie Raitt, “Love Me Like a Man.” From her second album, when she was still known as a blues artist.
George Harrison, “Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll).” All Things Must Pass was the shit in 1970. Now, I only like a couple of songs from the three LPs. This isn’t one of them.
The Grateful Dead, “Sugar Magnolia.” It’s proof of my lack of Deadheadedness that my favorites of their albums are Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty. And I love “The Golden Road.”
David Crosby, “Radio.” From his first solo album in 20 years.
The Who, “Run Run Run.” Pop music from 1966.
