Why has no one mentioned CAN ? From "Landed" 1968 to "Tago mago" in 1973 was one big trip.
Of course Acid wasn't an essential, although Malcolm may have had a tab or two when he came up with 'Little Star' . Then again 'Turtles have short legs' makes alot of sense when your bent.

Are we talking about OLD music ?

Or, are we asking what OLD STONERS like to listen to

as my son has pointed out landed was released in 1975, just the tracks date from earlier.

I should have written from "Delay in 68 etc. etc.

They had at least 3 great albumns: "It's a Beautiful Day", "It's a Beautiful Day Today" and "It's a Beautiful Day at Carnegie Hall" all great albums! I think on the Today album they had a song featuring lead tuba :-)

For me Tales was getting towards the end :-) I'm from the "Fragile", "Close to the Edge" era.

"Surrealistic Pillow" was the quintessential Airplane album. Though my favorite song, "Have You Seen the Stars Tonight" was off of "Blows Against the Empire"

The first album I bought with my own money was "In Search of the Lost Chord", I eventually had everything up to "Seventh Sojourn" but, only smatterings after that.

Oh, yeah! Love that album! I hope I remember to listen to it tonight :-) He had another before that, similar cover, can't remember what it was. Not sure if it made it to CD. Amazon comes through again: "Twice Removed from Yesterday" also a great album.

Additionals:

"Everybody Knows this is Nowhere" - Neil Young (Cowgirl in the Sand!)
"Then Play On" - Fleetwood Mac (1969?, real bluesy)

Sorry, rdf, we part company here. Steppenwolf was quality, at least on their best albums with Born To Be Wild, Magic Carpet Ride, The Pusher, etc. Some good songs that never made the top 40 as well, (A Girl Like You). Admittedly, they had their share of dreck at the end, but few bands didn't. Bad Company wasn't half-bad, but did you ever listen to their last couple of albums?

Don't.


James Gang? Well, Funk 49 was nice, and I bought a nice live album from them. Great? No. But in their worst moments, they didn't even approach Grand Funk-style lousiness.

If you listen to the vinyl of Grand Funk's first album, in the last cut, "Getting Closer To Home", the drummer goes off the beat. Outside of "Angel Baby", a fifties single, I never heard that happen.

I wasn't really slagging the 'Wolf, jess poking a little fun at how wide the 'Stoner Rock' circle was becoming. I expect Miles Davis to make an appearance any time now. And I still pull out the James Gang Live LP bought with A&W money every once in a long while.

Ouch, here we do part company. To my mind the Bad Company 'sound' - music and production - laid the roots for the next three decades of characterless corporate rock.
