Love is the Song We Sing-San Francisco Nuggts 65-73

0
0
Next four disc set we have fromm the Nuggets library features the sounds of San Francisco, some fair-to-good shit here, but the way-hippie stuff is a little outside my realm, in general......anyway, there
should be very little overlap withthe earlier sets (might be SOME), and enough bigger names and well known tunes to keep everyone interested, combined with enough obscurities to keep the coming back for more.

Disc one (sub-titled "Seismic Rumbles") feautres a pre-Grateful Dead Warlocks, pre-Jefferson Airplane Great Society, also the "real" Jefferson Airplane, tracks from Country Joe & the Fish, Quicksilver MEssenger Service, The Grass Roots, but also some dregs (in my opinion) of the era such as Sons of Champlain and Sopwith Camel.....all in the eye of the beholder I guess.

Disc Two ("Suburbia") brings us Nuggets overlap with Count 5's "Psychotic Reaction", also tracks from Chocolate Watchband and Syndicate of Sound (lesser known tracks from these, though), good stuff from Teddy & His Patches, Harbringer Complex, and Public Nuisance.

Disc Three ("Summer of Love") features the ridicuolously over-comped "Summertime Blues" from Blue Cheer , but also Moby Grapes magnificent "Omaha", a stirring live veresion of "Down on Me" from Big Brother & the Holding Company, Santana's "Soul Sacrifice", and Steve Miller's "Roll With it"......Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit appears here, too, and probably appears on as many comps as "Summertime BLues", but I guess they had a picture they wished to complete.

Disc 4 Four (Wait for it) ("The Man Can't Bust Our Music", TOLD YA it'd be worth the wait!) gives us the rather obvious "Evil Ways" by Santana, also the somewhat lame "White Bird" by It's a Beautiful Day, commonly available tracks like the Youngblood's "Get Together" and the Grateful Dead's "Dark Star".....but we DO also get some rarer stuff from Fifty Foot Hose, Kak, Seatrain, and the Flamin' Groovies.....


This is not my favorite set of the series......some good stuff, but a lot of hippie-dross and too much readilly available stuff....still, I'm sure, if you LIVED THROUGH this scene in SF during those years, this would serve as a perfectly wonderful life soundtrack. All in the perspective, I
guess......enjoy, and please comment......
