Today’s is #591:

The Jefferson Airplane: Young Girl Sunday Blues

Another cut from our growing Top 666 Songs of Alltime list (click at top right): post-Summer of Love madness, the Airplane at their most focused and intense, Jorma Kaukonen’s twelve-string sailing over Jack Casady’s crescendoing, growling bass. From After Bathing at Baxter’s, 1968; mp3s are at all the usual sites, but look for a smaller file; much of what’s out there is live and very dodgy-sounding.

More new posts on the way (technical difficulties keeping us from putting links up, so lots of stuff on hold): reviews for Dub Colossus, Zikrayat, Aimee Mann, Victrola Victrola, Redhooker all coming soon along with our end-of-the-year Top 20 NY-Area Concerts, Top 100 Songs and Top 50 CDs lists, check back in a couple of days…
