Long Songs Part Three!

Third and final sample of great long songs for long players. Which ones do you love to hear?

The Marshall Tucker Band - Southern Woman
jazzy and bluesy, southern rock. good music for a hot day!

Paul Butterfield Blues Band - East-West
rock, jazz, blues and indian raga. With Mike Bloomfield!

Sandy Bull - Inventions for Guitar & Banjo - Memphis Tennessee
radical take on this Chuck Berry classic backed by Billy Higgins!

Aretha Franklin - Live At Fillmore West - Spirit in the Dark

One of the best live recordings ever made. Features King Curtis and his band. Billy Preston on organ, Cornell Dupree on guitar, Bernard Purdie on drums. At one point she invites Ray Charles up on the stage to join her for what would become a career defining moment! This video is not the same show but gives you a sense of what it was like

The Chambers Brothers - The Time Has Come - Time Has Come Today
one of the best psych rock songs ever
