Music thread for all you old hippies (vanity, oh yeah)
some former hippie

Posted on 03/16/2013 3:31:44 PM PDT by West Texas Chuck

Who among us used to be one of those long-haired flea-infested dope-smoking denizens of the rock concert world?

Guilty. And recovered.

Post up some old tunes for a Saturday night.

20 bucks will buy you what he's smoking now.

Back then it was the good stuff - Mr Leach was on top of the charts.

Small Faces, Itchycoo Park

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itchycoo_Park

The song was first thought of and largely written by Ronnie Lane, who had been reading a leaflet on the virtues of Oxford which mentioned its dreaming spires.[6]

A number of sources claim the song’s name is derived from the nickname of Little Ilford Park, on Church Road in the London suburb of Manor Park, where Small Faces’ singer and song-writer Steve Marriott grew up. The “itchycoo” nickname is, in turn, attributed to the stinging nettles which grew there. Other sources cite nearby Wanstead Flats (Manor Park end) as the inspiration for the song.[7]

This song was a hit when I was 15 in 69. I was in love with the song and the singer. So without further ado here is “A Band called Smith” and their hit “Baby it’s you.”

Yes, I know. I like both of them. Friends of Distinction also did Grazin’ in the Grass.
We’ve been working on our music collection, so our lists have become quite huge.

We saw Jethro Tull perform at a university concert about 1971/1972. I didn’t expect much, because his albums were o.k. but a bit too much on the weird side. Fortunately, the concert was so good, it absolutely blew away his recordings. What he did with a flute....

Yeah, but the real hippies knew that song was about smoking pot, so they accepted it.

“We saw Jethro Tull perform at a university concert about 1971/1972. I didn’t expect much, because his albums were o.k. but a bit too much on the weird side.”

Reminds me of this time I was on a music discussion board and this deranged boomer was trying to sell everyone on the idea that not only was the 70s the golden age of music, but he thought JT was one of the greatest bands ever. A band who’s biggest hit was a song about some homeless dude checking out little girls in a park. I’d say he wasn’t making the most convincing case for his argument.

The other guys on the board tried to convince him otherwise, but there was no convincing him otherwise.

There’s 70s music that still sounds good today but JT isn’t among them. Their playing style, arrangements, and sound are very dated.

Ian Anderson is a talented musician and amazing performer. Dance on the stage like a cat, and at the time he was a pack a day smoker.

Alice Cooper, not so good on the music (but not bad), but another outstanding performer. There are so many of them ;-) Zappa, I wonder what he'd be creating today. Santana.

Late 60's, early 70's was a revolutionary era for music. Went on pretty good through the 70's, from my point of view.

“Late 60’s, early 70’s was a revolutionary era for music. Went on pretty good through the 70’s, from my point of view.”

It was pretty much during this time that music as we know it today came into being. More-or-less started with the Beatles because they were the first mainstream band to write their own songs and where each member was equal (as opposed to the 50s where you had Elvis and the Jordanaires, Buddy Holly and the Crickets, etc).

Also the 60s saw the birth of rock journalism when magazines like Rolling Stone first appeared.

I guess it didn’t because the people in this thread have to demonstrate how cool and hipster they are by not linking cliche 60s songs like Purple Haze and Incense Peppermints.
