Here’s a great, classy remix of Elton John’s “Rocket Man” from Groovefunkel. I’ll definitely get some use out of this one!
It’s hard to pick out my favorite Who track (they were my favorite band in high school) but its easy to pick out my favorite Entwistle performance in the Who: “The Real Me” off of the 1973 rock opera Quadrophenia.
People are often surprised when I mention Traffic’s “The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys” as one of my favorite songs of all time.
Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & the Trinity’s absolutely sublime psychedelic 1968 cover of Donovan’s folk-pop hit “Season of the Witch” gets a respectful yet groovy redux from producer/DJ/multi-instrumentalist The Pied Piper.
One guilty pleasure I will confess to is Elton John, specifically pre-1975 Elton John and Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy.
A cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” leads off Davy Graham’s Large as Life and Twice as Natural album with a bang.
Jerry Only’s current incarnation of the legendary Misfits recorded a limited edition holiday record featuring their version of “Blue Christmas”, made famous by Elvis Presley.
As the holidays approach I find myself listening to songs from my youth. “Marmendy Mill” by Flo and Eddie is a song that instantly takes me back to age 15, Atlanta, GA, listening to records with my headphones on.
