Happy Birthday Jimi Hendrix, born on this day in 1942. Here he is playing Sgt. Pepper the same week it was released. Paul McCartney apparently saw him do this version and he was in utter awe.

Gandalf: A dreamy, phantasmagorical, and totally psyched-out version of “Me About You”, which was later a failed single for the Turtles.

The Redcoats: Wonderful contemplative Beatlesque song by a NJ garage band that wanted to write wonderful Beatlesque songs. While it wasn’t publicly released until 2001, and it sounds like it was sung by John (Lennon, that is), I still cling to the belief that it inspired Paul to write “Let It Be”!

Wool: Super funky rock, a “vocal tour-de-force” from an album that’s “a super tight blend of psych-rock, pop, and funk.” I think this song was just too far ahead of its time. The Talking Heads would’ve had a romp with it.

On this day in 1991 we lost Freddie Mercury. 'Someone To Love' is such a well-known song but his isolated vocals are an absolute joy!
