Classic Rock Bottom


I thought for the Last Official Week Of Summer 2013, a Return To The Summer Of Love might be in order.
As I have said before, 1967 is my favorite year for what was breaking out all over the place in Music, and also Radio!
Notice the Volume 1, that would indicate I plan to return to this year from time to time.
There is a definite Folk slant in this opening half, and I make no apologies for it.
This is Music that should be heard!
If no one plays these artists they will be forgotten, they will disappear.
It is already happening.
I wonder how many of this current Generation have even heard of them...hell, even the previous Generation?
So, Music you will be introduced to from 1967, or recognize and embrace with warm memories.
By the way, as I say on the show, I do believe I made a mistake in here.
And I still don't want to talk about it, lol!
Here are the links to Tie-Dyed Recollections, at Mike Pell Rockollections (after all this time, notice the similarity to the Name of the Show, lol?):

Oh, Sojourn was the Word Of The Day.

Nice! And now I'll know.
Although the Moody Blues used it for their 7th album, lol!

Word Of The Day (WOTD)

Oh man, you better believe 1967 and it's surrounding years were great for forming a person's musical thumbprint.
It opened the world up, as those FM guys would play everything- even Classical music.
And to me maybe just as important, I was so taken by that freedom, I was never going to play music the same way again myself.
There is no Shuffle in my mind, lol!
The songs usually are played for a reason, and honestly, stepping back as just a listener, I very much like the sequence of songs in this half.
It's like someone else did it.
Again, I hate to break it to you, it's Dave Van RONK, lol!
How about Rock Van Ronk?
I couldn't find the Blue Oyster Cult version, but I may have played that L 7 one anyway.
It's Buffy Sainte-Marie, a Canadian who wrote a lot about her Native American people, and had been around well before 1967.
Of course, this I learned from like Scott Muni on WNEW-FM, I had never heard these people before.
In fact most of those songs in here, Scott played and taught and impressed me with.
Not the first time the Golden Pell has been in a 3-way tie!
And all excellent choices by you- I applaud your musical taste and particularly your openness to the music.
Thanks for the listen and writing bro,

I was man enough to admit I made a mistake.
If no one knows what it was, why should I put it here FOR ALL TO SEE, LOL?
What was my last sojourn you are calling WOTD?
What's that WTF, lol?
That whole Janis Ian song thing, I get what you say!
It never bothered me that Buffy Sainte-Marie had a warbly voice.
That was so much music coming into my life every day in those early FM days, I just accepted it and liked what she sang.
And there is a LOT more by her worth playing!
I like the name Buffy too...and that Sarah Michelle Gellar even more!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

I bet 1967 and it's surrounding years were great for forming a person's musical thumbprint.  This show had a bunch of good songs.  And the greatest name in the history of RNR, Dave Van Rock.  It seems like I've said that before.  He should have been a hard rocker.

I thought that first song was familiar, but didn't realize it was a BOC cover until you mentioned it.  Not bad at all.

Four songs really stood out to me.  First, and the least of the four, though still a cool song, was the one by Buffy St. Marie.  Yet another cool name as well.  

And a really tough time for me with the Golden Pell.  So I'm giving it to all three of the other songs.  Those were Renaissance Fair by The Byrds, Evening Star by Janis Ian (this one was beautiful) and Black Sheep Boy by Tim Hardin.  These were all terrific songs and they all deserve the Golden Pell.

Nice job brother.

So, what was the mistake? Are you man enough to admit what it was??????

I liked your last sojourn (WOTD) thru 67, and like this one as well. Actually, the Janis Ian song sounds really modern to me, not like something from the 50's. But, I wasn't alive during the 50's so really can't say but I am alive now so I can say. That's what I say.

Buffy had a warbly voice, I just don't like my voices warbly. Dig the name "Buffy" though. She's a VAMPIRE SLAYER!
