Musical Leftovers

Thanksgiving leftovers are probably on your food menu today and I also hope you’re in the mood for some tasty musical memories.

Once again I am returning to a few of the songs I didn’t get around to last month when I played the biggest hits of 1967 and 1968.

The great thing about playing music from the Sixties is you never run out of memories … or leftovers!

    If these are the leftovers that must have been quite a meal! Everyone here knows how to make a “joyful noise”. These are real energy brokers. Tommy James, Grass Roots & Sly all really bring it to the party.
    The Doors first album was a true game changer. Light My Fire was so long and had so much excitement packed into the grooves it was unbelievable. I remember playing that album over and over. I think if you held it up to the light you could see right through it! I still love it.
    Sly acted like a crazy man, well turns out he was crazy, it wasn’t an act. He owned the entire stage when he performed. Quite the showman.
    I Can See For Miles is my favorite Who song. I haven’t heard it in a while, it was good to hear it again.
    Thanks Ray for a first rate set. Have a good weekend.

      Don, there are still so many delicacies I have yet to play from the Sixties. The entire decade was a musical banquet!

      By the way, I Can See For Miles was the highest charting single (#9) The Who ever had in the U.S.
      ROCK ON, BRO!

    Usually, leftovers cause me to be tired which makes pre-Christmas decorating cleaning difficult to complete. But not these leftovers! Thanks for the boost while I clean my roost! 🙂 (The Sixties were a banquet, indeed! XOXOXOXO

    I love leftovers and these won’t add a pound! I think there must be a special place in heaven for 60s music….if so I am going to find it and never leave! Course that is assuming..,
    Thanks as always for taking me back in time.

    Really enjoyed the “leftovers” Ray. Had not heard anything from the Grassroots in a very long time.
    Don’t have anything from them in our vinyl collection. Hoping you had a good holiday and we are wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year my friend!

      Thanks, Marty and Karen.
      So glad you enjoyed the “meal” 🙂
      I’m wishing both of you a very Merry Christmas and here’s hoping 2021 makes up for the disaster 2020 has been.
