Turn the Greatful Dead up! I gotta confess I don't know much about them by now but from what I've heard I really haven't expected them to be that funky. Honestly, that instrumental part from 2.30 to 3.30 approximately was one of the best moments in music I had in a long time. Guitars and bass and synthesizer melted into one big grooving, funky instrument. I've searched the internet for good funk for a while now and that's one of the best things I've found.

Additionally, I've listenend to some of the older entries in this thread again and stumbled across this Tom Wait's track Step Right Up. I remember having disliked it back then but now I suddenly found it that cool, that I immediately had to give the whole album a listen. While some of the slower songs on it are not really my taste, Pasties and a G-String immediately found its way into my favourite songs. I'm so amazed at how much fabulous music is collected in this thread.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Always turn Syd Barrett up. I particularly love the line 'And I stood very still by the windowsill/ And I wondered for those I loved still'... such a haunting image.

@Martha if your search is for funk, the Dead are never a bad place to start. Try checking out some shows from 75-79, where the band, with Keith Godchaux on keys, really found a groove that took them to a whole other world. 

Once we start hearing keyboardist Brent Mydland ‘play in the band” after Godchaux’s death from 79 into the 80s their arsenal explodes, and it gets arguably even funkier.

I saw "cover version" and listening to the first coupla gently-strummed minutes, I thought it was yet another Floyd - related track, one that I had no knowledge of. Surprise! It's a Donovan track I had no knowledge of instead  (I only recognize the hits or the Sunshine Superman LP)...

tl, dr - Sorry, I'm gonna request that that be turned down a bit. I kinda like the spacy stoned vibe and the lead guitar a bit, but on the whole it was too subtle to grab me. I admit not listening to the lyrics, but they're rarely a factor on their own, regarding my opinion. Sorry, SG (but the important thing is that YOU like it! 😀 ) 

Did someone request some FUNK?

I'll keep my legs closed, thanks. Turn down (Sorry, Yoko!yoko-ono_01) I will give it props though for kinda reminding me of The Residents's style of avant garde.

This next song is the opening track from Le Orme's (who I've mentioned quite a few times on the forum) 1982 album Venerdì. Although it's more pop sounding than their Prog stuff from the previous decade (which I highly recommend), I still like it!

Hm, that's a tough one. On the one hand, the percussion is great, it features awesomely unusual instruments for this genre and the occasional Chinese touch adds a nice colour. The bassline in the choruses is cool too and the dreamy outro with its irregularities as well. Overall I really, really like the song because it's so full of fascinating little ideas. But there's one thing that annoys me a bit and that is the drumset as I find the drumming pattern quite uninspired and frankly a bit boring. But in the end, the cool percussion and bass outweigh this little downer, so turn it up a bit. But the psychedelic stuff you have shared of them is fantastic!

*SQUEEEOORRKK*  TURN the guitar of the late great amazing Pete Cosey WAY UP along with the rest of the track! I was lucky enough to buy that Miles "corner" box some years back and it's always nice hearing some of it again after a hiatus. I do wish Miles played a bit more organ here (or didn't bury it in the mix so much most of the time, whichever), because I really liked how those extreme dissonances rode above the rhythms, but no big deal. And I've sometimes wished Al Foster woulda kept his hi-hat closed more often during this era's 20-minute+ performances, but then I just imagine that he's paying tribute to Richard "Star Club" Starkey and enjoy it on a new level!

When the guitar started playing* I really liked the song, later, when the organ played those aggressive dissonances and the sax began blowing his nose (what a mean thing to say, LOL, I'd give everything to be able to play like that!) I started to love the song and, finally, by the time it gets rhythmically nuts I was obsessed! What an incredible performance! I also really dig the little swing fragment that shines through towards the ending. Definitely turn it up, in fact, I had it turned up all week already. But turn the screen of my laptop down at the same time so that I don't have to see this disturbing album cover anymore.paul-mccartney

* Was that an acoustic guitar with a wah-pedal? Whatever it may be, it sounds bloody awesome! I knew it was a mistake only to listen to 'Freak Out!'...

Turn it up, pretty heavy for someone who's name sounds like Robin Williams.

"Weasels" is xcellent! A mixture of 1967-69 live and studio songs/compositions/improvisations/experiments (and a great, bluesy Little Richard cover w/amazing elec. violin solo by Sugar Cane Harris, and a nasty comeback to "All You Need Is Love") all edited together in typically jarring fashion! And sorry...I'm not sure if it's an amplified acoustic or an electric maybe recorded by direct injection or something...

@Dark Overlord , Robin Trower (original guitarist for John Lennon's beloved Procol Harum) basically carried Jimi's spacy Strat sound into the '70s. He had like a dozen albums with practically the same identical idea for album cover art...I used to enjoy "Bridge of Sighs"...anyways, turn that "Girl" cover video UP for the most part, but turn it DOWN when the ludicrous overdubbed lead bits appear [where'd THAT come from??], then back up again because the song's a good 'un and I like seeing the chording!

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I thought I'd add those parts in because they're in the original song but thanks for your honest opinion on my cover of Girl.

As for Mandarin, turn up the instruments but turn down the vocals.
