Re: "Aging Hippies Music Thread"

I have never spent more time on one thread than I have this one.

How many of the younger ones think this was a fairly recent tune? Man ya gotta love the fancy foot work of the Blonde and the back up players. The King of the surf guitars...







This one is more recent, but Junior Brown is probably one of if not theee best, Caution excellant geetar work ahead.

Re: "Aging Hippies Music Thread"

I too have had a lot of fun on this thread, due to the date range of the music. It is for that reason I'm not surprised that other prolific posters such as Rebel Heart and Astrid have not chimed in, as it was a bit before their time. Oh to be young again.

Love it. It reminds me of going to a concert by Leon Russell, his evil cousin (not really), in '71. Hope that's not too late to roll into this thread.

Re: "Aging Hippies Music Thread"

I think muscians like Frank Zappa really captured the back story of the 1960's especially with songs like Flower Punk:
The Mothers of Invention - Flower Punk (1968) - YouTube

Hey Punk, where you goin' with that flower in your hand?
Hey Punk, where you goin' with that flower in your hand?
Well, I'm goin' up to Frisco to join a psychedelic band.

Hey Punk, where you goin' with that button on your shirt?
Hey Punk, where you goin' with that button on your shirt?
I'm goin' to the love-in to sit & play my bongos in the dirt.
Yes, I'm goin' to the love-in to sit & play my bongos in the dirt.
Hey Punk, where you goin' with that hair on your head?
Hey Punk, where you goin' with that hair on your head?
I'm goin' to the dance to get some action, then I'm goin' home to bed.
I'm goin' to the dance to get some action, then I'm goin' home to bed.
Hey Punk, where you goin' with those beads around your neck?
Hey Punk, where you goin' with those beads around your neck?
I'm goin' to the shrink so he can help me be a nervous wreck . . .
Hey Punk!
Punky!

Re: "Aging Hippies Music Thread"

I was thinking of Dr John for this thread last night, got up this morning and "Lo and behold" One clip i do like is Dr John and Jools Holland playing together, awesome.



And a couple from the BIG man of rock, in his prime.





Loved Jim Steinman's little rock operettas.

Re: "Aging Hippies Music Thread"

Coops, the Incredible String Band was big for me as a young man, my best friend lived on a commune in VA with her parents from Haight, still doing psychedelics in the 90's. They turned me on to the ISB and they have many good songs that kept me thinking as a young man.

Andy R, incredible rendition of Eyes of the World with Branford...muito obrigado! Love Florianopolis of course (Jeez how can there be so many beautiful women in one country), and Getz and Joao Gilberto and other Bassanova from Brasil. Friend just gave me tickets to Medeline Piroux in May, thank goodness for friends who just about make me get off the farm to see music. Count Basie lived up the street from us in Freeport, Bahamas when I was a little boy. Still have some keepsakes from Catherine Basie, who befriended my mom during the years we were there.

This is a fun thread, thanks for the change of pace. Grateful for you all reminding me how important music is, more to life than farming, reading about farming, and studying for HAM general ticket, and of course, floating from place to place when time allows.

Still in my thirties, my hair is turning (back to blond?) so I guess aging applies, but we never called ourselves hippies, despite listening to all this same music, living in a tipi for two years, and speeding through the universe. I guess you guys had the name to yourselves and we were just riding on your coattails. But damn, those coattails were rode hard, and put up wet.

Thanks for all the fun videos....

Chase

Re: "Aging Hippies Music Thread"

Any excuse for another couple of ISB clips. An acquired taste in their time, nowadays, i feel they would be hard pressed to get a gig.







They were all talented musicians, watching them at a concert it was fascinating to watch all of them change instruments between one song and another, they could all play nearly every instrument.

Coops.
