Song Of The Day

29/6/15 – Mabel Greer’s Toyshop – Beyond and Before – 1968

Continuing with the tribute to Chris Squire, this sweet Psychedelic gem is from pre Yes band, Mabel Greer’s Toyshop and sounds remarkably like early Pink Floyd. Hear that bass guitar – the sound of Yes is born! The band also featured the first Yes guitar player, Peter Banks, he and Squire had played together in pre […]

Life & Death

28/6/15 – Chris Squire – 4th March 1948 – 28th June 2015 – Hold Out Your Hand/ You By My Side – 1975

Fragile, was the first Yes album with the ‘famous’ line up of Squire, Anderson, Wakeman, Howe and Bruford and learning the bass riff to the opening track, Roundabout was a musical breakthrough for me as a budding teenage musician.

25/6/15 – The Rolling Stones – 2000 Light Years From Home – 1967

What a strange event it was in the history of The Rolling Stones – the Psychedelic album. Here they are in a video for 2000 Light Years From Home sounding more like The Pink Floyd than a Blues influenced Beat group (although that groove)! One wonders what The Pink Floyd thought about it all? Brian […]

Song Of The Day

24/6/15 – The Rolling Stones – We Love You – 1967

Recorded as part of the Satanic Majesties sessions in 1967, We Love You was a thank you to everyone that supported the Stones on their arrest earlier in the year. The song starts with the rattling of gaoler’s keys, ominous footsteps and the sound of a cell door slamming shut. The promo video directed by […]
