I have literally thousands of tracks on my iPod. I put all my favourite tracks on it.
I put it to shuffle and this is what came out today:
Wang Dang Doodle – Howlin’ Wolf
Good old fifties Chicago Blues. Hubert Sumlin on guitar. All laid down in the Chess Studio in one take. No overdubs. A great fun Willie Dixon number. A macho good time number, upbeat and full of bragging. We’re gonna do that Wang Dang Doodle all night!
Mushroom Cloud – Love
That vision of nuclear war from Love. A song of the times. We don’t seem to worry about nuclear holocaust any more. Maybe we should?
Long Grey Mare – Fleetwood Mac
Interesting to see the sexual politics of the sixties. In the fifties sex was obscene but it was alright to kill.
We Could Be So Good Together – Doors
More sexual politics. I’ll tell you wicked lies.
Hard To Handle – Otis Redding
Now this was Otis Redding the King of Soul. Go back with him tonight and he’ll show you the best time in the world – guaranteed.
Porpoise Mouth – Country Joe and the Fish
A psychedelic song of love.
I like a varied fayre. Great stuff.
