Midweek Nugget


21 degrees in London today, who'da thunk it. Here's another Nugget, then...

'Mind Excursion' by New York's Tradewinds shows how even (presumably) straight groups co-opted the trend by utilizing a suggestive title that, in actuality, encouraged a positive physical adventure rather than a headtrip.

(sleeve notes)

Unable to fund a Grand Tour at present, I'm going to see if I can get any kind of 'head trip' going on some cheap Pinot from the supermarket.

The Tradewinds - 'Mind Excursion' (1966)

  1. [I've just noticed that the lead vocal drops away quite a bit in the second verse - thought this might be my computerising, but a second attempt is the same, so maybe the Nuggets people are to blame; anyway, sorry about that. With just the music up, it does sound quite Brian Wilson demo-ey. And it's only a little bit anyway]

  2. I shall listen to this later. I was listening to The Morning Dew earlier today, who are also from a Nuggets thing, and also very sunshine=y, although in a moody, almost Stones meets Hendrix meets funk sort of way. Dark sunshine. If you know what I mean. London sunshine, after it's been too hot for too long.

  6. Crazy world huh?

    [The 'track' is now 're-upped' minus the vocal 'drop-out' 'issue'. If you've already downloaded, you may care to go for it again. Hugs x]
