For some strange reason have a strong affinity for a certain set of songs from 1967-69. Maybe because it was the "summer of love" era of music and
pre-AIDS sex was rampant. There was a lot of counter culture going on and people were sick of the government. People were protesting the Viet Nam
war. Many people where doing drugs and tuning out. Maybe that's why I like this era. I've never done any real drugs but I guess I just romanticise
in some other alternate dimension I'm a cool rocker. Here is small set of the songs I like from this 3 year period:
Look how cool Jeff Beck looks in this video playing the guitar. He's amazing in this video:
Keith Relf was the lead singer in the Heart Full of Soul video above. Imagine being Keith Relf and missing out of Led Zepplin one year later! Keith
Relf dies a horrible death:
"Relf died in the basement of his home in 1976 at age 33 from electrocution while playing an electric guitar. Relf had several health problems
throughout his life, including emphysema and asthma, which may have contributed to his inability to survive the electric shock."
This song is timeless:
Here is the isolated vocals from White Rabbit. It's mesmerizing:
The next song is amazing. I just love the spacey mindset:
The following could be my favorite song from this era. I've listened to it over 100 times:
I was researching Iron Butterfly's history and found out Philip Taylor Kramer, the bass player, was engineer and inventor. And supposedly he had his
own GUT theory and theory for how to do time travel. So I wanted to see if I could read any text on his theory to see how good it was. In trying to
search I found this amazing gem. It turns out there is a guy named P A Kramer who writes science fiction stories about time travel! What are the
odds for such a coincidence!!!
Jimmi Hendrix’s performance at Woodstock blew my mind, especially Star spangled banner and his improvisation at the end. I love most music from that
era, early floyd are overlooked in my opinion. Piper at the gates of dawn is brilliant but Hendrix was something else, like a force of nature.
