I was in the Delacorte' Theater in Central Park, listening
to The Chambers Brothers do "TIME (Has Come Today)"
for the very first time. They*Brought*The*House*Down!

T’weren’t a serious question
just a way of opening a thread
but had it been a serious question:

I had just left High School to get married,
moved to the East Village (Greenwich Village)
robbed and dumpt by the guy who I was to marry
paling around with my HS SweetHeart & HIS Husband
Dancing nightly at The Stonewall Inn in the West Village,
Selling drugs to make a living, being shot at by the Mafia,
the FBI, AND The Hell’s Angels...all over the Same batch of
bad acid, which is how I came to be living in Dallas for a while,
bouncing back to NYCity, living @ Abbie Hoffman’s Digger’s Free
Store, cooking & caring for the run-aways in my care, just on-time
to have missed out on the March on Washington, The Chicago Riots,
& to have missed going to Yasgar’s Farm in a little town in Up-State NY

Between the Summers of 1968 and 1969 I'd had a very full dance card. crazy

Graduating from high school, still a virgin & touring all of Europe with my mother for a full 6 weeks (graduation present).
It was also the same year, I smoked in front of my parents.

I was, um, negative 3. My sister was negative 1, it is possible my parents were married that year, so things were rolling in the right direction for there to be a me.

Sheesh!

Did anyone listen to the "TIME (Has Come Today)" ?

It was actually the crux of the Entire Thread.

I'd up-loaded it for a friend who'd never heard it and
figured I'd share a slice o' "GEEZER ROCK" wit ch'all.

That's just sad & sick!
They did that song the night we saw them...

It's a Peace Song frown from their Gospel roots

nah

it was just a spur-of-the-moment title
rather than saying, "Gee! Do you remember THIS SONG?" grin

Actually the thread took an interesting turn...
...that turned out to be pretty darned good,
we just all started sharing a little slice of TIME cool


I just became curious if anyone had even found
the Song Title hidden among all the Links... blush

I played it quite a bit in the garage band I was in around that time. A great song, though I thing some things could've been edited in the long version.

Such was the trend in music at that time. The Stones did a song called "Going Home" on their "Aftermath" album. 11 minutes could easily have been edited to four.

Thanks for the trip into memory land. It's especially nice while the memory is still working! crazy
