the white album that you've never heard

i've been reviewing the music from the year 1968 off and on for the past several months. there was a plethora of lasting, creative music released in that year, and one of the most creative and lasting albums was the beatles double album, euphamistically called "the white album."

jaco pastoriusthis week i'll play the best versions of songs from that album that have been covered by other artists. some covers seem obvious: a mashup i put together of sarah mclachlan's and crosby stills & nash's "blackbird," and a brilliant version of "yer blues" by blues artist lucky peterson.

more surprising is jazz postal servicebassist jaco pastorius' [left] "dear prudence," and the postal service's [right] electronica version of "i will."

1968 & the White Album

My musical review of the year 1968 continues with The Rolling Stones, and is followed by one of the great guitar notes (and solos) you will ever hear (I'm not revealing it here, you'll have to tune in to find out).

strawberry alarm clockThe Strawberry Alarm Clock were considered a one-hit wonder with "Incense and Peppermints," but this week's delightful "Sit with the Guru," is also memorable for its pseudo spiritual references. And then there's the equally good-intentioned if naive "Love beads and meditation" by The Lemon Pipers.

More musical meditations with The Moody Blues' "Om" and the entire Beatles "White Album" condensed into one 20-minute meditation, featuring the mantra "Number 9."

The rest of the play list is: here.
