The End – “Shades of Orange” (1968)

August 25, 2008 at 7:26 pm (Psychedelia)

Best remembered for this (Stones bassist) Bill Wyamn-produced and co-written psychedelic-pop song. He, in fact, produced their sole album Introspection.

Charlie Watts contributed tabla to this revered collector’s item, which was recorded during the Stones’ Satanic Majesties Request album sessions.

The Clique – “Superman” (1969)

August 25, 2008 at 7:14 pm (Music)

The original version of the song R.E.M. had a hit with in 1986. The Clique were a bubblegum-type rock band who had a hit with a song called “Sugar on Sunday” in 1969 – this song was the B-side. 
R.E.M.’s version definitely improves on this song – or I should say Michael Stipe sings it much better – the vocal here is much more mannered and “bubblegum-y.” But it’s a great song in either version. 
As for this odd “video,” I have no idea who did it or why. So make of it what you will.

Taken from their 2nd album If Only for a Moment

Kaleidoscope (UK) – “Dive Into Yesterday” / “Flight From Ashiya” (1967)

August 25, 2008 at 7:03 pm (Psychedelia)

There were 2 psychedelic bands from the late 60s called Kaleidoscope – one in America and one in England – this is the slightly lesser known British version. These 2 songs are taken from their debut album Tangerine Dream (not to be confused with the German band – not sure if their name was taken from this album…?). Anyhow, quality stuff…

An excellent psych-pop song from 1967 by this obscure band from Chicago. This was their only minor hit.

Nirvana (UK) – “Rainbow Chaser” (1968)

August 25, 2008 at 5:44 pm (Psychedelia)

This is the orginal band called Nirvana, who were a British band from the late 60s. They are a fairly obscure band, but they recorded this pyschedelic classic, which used the production technique of “phasing” throughout the entire song (one of the first to do so).

After leaving The Faces, Ronnie Lane formed Slim Chance. He performed this Faces song on the BBC. Great version…but unfortunately it cuts off around the 3 minute mark.
