Classic Rock Bottom

More Trios, and some songs doubtful are on today's Radio Computerized Playlists.
This Chapter is mostly 60's, but with dips into the 50's and 70's.
Included, a Band that shocked me by how full and loud a sound they had.
Remember, the Beatles were 4 guys and the Rolling Stones were 5!
And another that seemed to revel in having lost members, proudly proclaiming they were now a Trio.
Plus Musicians who got together after being in other Bands prior, Brothers, and Artful Alliterations.
Just asking, would you like some Cream in your Sweet Wine?
You know...I mean, while you listen, lol!
Here are the links to some Power Trios, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

Right off, the Golden Pell to Traffic for Medicated Goo, a single with Shanghai Noodle Factory on the other side (which I played in the Rat Race).
Excellent choice, I didn't know which you'd pick and it was close.
The early Bee Gees did some incredible things that fit right in with all the other experimentation of the 60's, and I really ought to dip more into them and prove it.
Helplessly Hoping also has those tricky lyrics- I had more to say about that song but not enough time.
When I first read that you bought Thirty Years of Funk, I thought of the Isley Brothers, which didn't seem your style too much.
Then the skies parted and it hit me, The GRAND Funk, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

Bringing it down to the lowest denominator eh?- you are the Cream of the Crop, lol!
How was prison?
If you want Shout let me know.
It couldn't hurt hearing the song in Animal House, and you are correct, it was a different artist, again not nearly as good as the original.
Medicated Goo is a lotion you rub on your body before having sex in prison, lol!
Sorry to ruin the mystery.
I like it when you wonder what I'll play not necessarily aloud but in your head.
I don't think I've ever yelled at you, but I do prefer you to remain silent, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing, and glad you liked it,

Nice songs for this one.

The two best "unheard" songs to me were Medicated Goo by Traffic and I can't See Nobody by The Bee Gees. I think I will give the Golden Pell to Traffic, but only by a hair.

Helplessly Hoping is a tremendous tune. Just incredible vocals like always with CSN.

Side note, I just bought Thirty Years of Funk by a trio you featured earlier I the series.

Would I like cream in my sweet wine? That sounds like prison talk, so no. 

What a great show! I have all these songs except for "Shout", but I might actually have it somewhere. I wonder if "Animal House" helped exposing that song to more people, even though I believe it was a different artist.

"Medicated Goo". What a title for a song. Always struck me as highly weird, there's probably some meaning behind the title but I have never bothered to check. Better to remain a mystery.

Now I wonder what other trios you'll toss our way. I could guess, but then you'd yell at me so I'll just remain silent.
