96 tears  performed by ? and the Mysterions  1967
Recommended by n-jeff [profile]

The greatest pop song of all time. Without a doubt. I heard this on the radio at about midnight one day in 1979, it took me 10 years to get a copy and that was a bootleg (I know its always been about in the US, but it was impossible to get here).





  02 May 01 ·tinks: it is indeed, one of the greatest songs ever produced...and some of the covers are just as good! check out big maybelle's (which i've recommended), jimmy ruffin's (temptation david's brother) or aretha franklin's (from her 1st atlantic lp).
  28 Feb 02 ·G400 Custom: ...but don't check out the Stranglers' very weedy cover from 1990, by which time they'd lost it completely.
The smell of incense  performed by West Coast Pop Art Experimental band  1967
Recommended by n-jeff [profile]

I love the WCPAEB, they really seem to encapsulate Psychedelia perfectly. Light, blurred and dreamy. And unlike many of their contemporaries seem completely untouched by Garage authenticity. Not that theres anything wrong with garage punk per se, but it means that theres none of blundering of 'talk about girls' to fray those tinted moods.

Oh, it has loud guitars and harmonies right enough, but the whole thing is pitched just right to lift the dregs of any mood enhancers you may have floating around in your bloodstream and send them spinning into your brain.

from Volume 2, available on CD




  01 Sep 02 ·john_l: I hadn't realized it was a WCPAEB original. I've only heard the version by Southwest FOB, which was pleasant enough.
