Classic Rock Bottom

Halloween approaches, or should I say it creeps up quietly behind us.
Some very interesting songs in here, including a just-released, brand new one.
But the Centerpiece in this opening half is a trip back to those good old Free-Form FM Radio days, for a song from an album no one ever mentions anymore!
The album, Super Session, was a Monster (pardon the pun!) album back when it came out in 1968.
Talk about an FM Turntable Hit- if you have never heard it before it is a sublime experience!
I've got Halloween appropriate Music here, and it's not the same old same old.
So join me for a listen, it will be fun!
 
Here are the links to listen, with the most frightening thing being how my mind works, lol, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

RJ,
Oh man, how could you forget Halloween, you got kids right, lol?
That Season Of The Witch by Al Kooper and Stephen Stills is a classic, as is the whole Super Session album.
And like Itold Jon, there was yet another Season Of The Witch version that got a lot of FM airplay in the 60's by a guy named Terry Reid.
He seems to have disappeared.
But ther winner of the Golden Pell is Paul McCartney, and I haven't even listened to whole album yet!
I read that the track was hidden in a few reviews, but I have a Deluxe Edition and it's on the listing, and it's named Scared.
Paul's not 125 years old, but he's more than halfway there, lol!
Best band name to The Black Albinos, I know, I loved it too...very cool.
My friend Mike sent me that song, I can't find anything about the group.
Thanks for the listen and writing,
Mike

Jon,

Hahahahaha...the only thing you find scary is hookers!

It was just a joke, and a damn good one, lol!

I liked that I got to play that Animals song, and Otis I finally got around to also.- perfect song for Halloween, Trick Or Treat.

The Super Session album is a classic, no collection is complete...you know the rest!

Great guitar work in it.

Donovan's version is eerier, but how many times can I play it?

I've been sitting on that Al Kooper version for years and it was time to play it- and I have gotten mail from people who loved it and hadn't heard it in years.

There is yet another old FM favorite interpretation of that song that too never gets played- it's by a guy named Terry Reid, and I'll play him too if I do a show next Halloween.

Frankly, aside from the Mel Brooks opening I wasn't trrying to be scary this year.

How many times can I play Monster Mash and that ilk?

You can hear that stuff anywhere, I don't need to provide it.

And your usual laugh came from:

 

 

I watched "Halloween III: Season Of The Witch" yesterday, part of my 31 horror movies for the month of October. I have a life. Really.

 

 

Damn, 31 horror movies for the month of October, you have a CRAZY life, LOL!

I'll pick for you- The Animals & Super Session!

Thanks for the listen and writing, you were first in with a response again, and I appreciate you listen well enough to catch my jokes...even if you don't like them, lol,

Mike

I totally forgot Halloween was Thursday.  Scott actually reminded me first with his SHT post.  

Nice show.  Best songs for me were Season Of The Witch by Al Kooper and Stephen Stills and, the winner of the Golden Pell, Paul McCartney.  The track you said was hidden and named Scare or Scared.  That was a pretty good song for somebody that's 125 years old...

Best band name to The Black Albinos.  How cool is that?

And there you go with hookers AGAIN!

The Animals song was eerie, the Otis song was not. But I wasn't scared at either of them.

Heard of that Super Session album, never got it. I like Donovan's version better, the horns hear make it sound like a light n' lively song, while the Donovan version sounds like there's gonna be some real eeeeeevil stuff a-happenin'. Did like the geetar work, though.  I watched "Halloween III: Season Of The Witch" yesterday, part of my 31 horror movies for the month of October. I have a life. Really.

The Black Albino's song was more scary than anything else, but not REALLY scary.

And the Paul McCartney song? Eh. Not scary at all.

So, if I was to pick one song, it wouyld be the one by The Animals. But I'm not picking one song.
