It’s music that fills the intangible space between your head and soul, where you discover something different and compelling every time you listen to it.
It is a song that haunts me, the needle prickling the turntable in my head. Of course, without even having heard this song, it would have had me at the title. Brian Jones was indeed very pretty, (I read somewhere that he and his girlfriend Anita Pallenberg used to wear each other’s clothes) but he was also a very menacing character. So before you listen to a single note, this song has the potential to be dark and layered. An enticing combination.
And when you do listen, you are immersed – everything is psychedelically saturated in this song from the dreamlike vocals to the lush instrumentation which adds to the seductive plunge.
If you’re lucky enough to be in Chicago on March 15th, the Drovers are playing a reunion show and hopefully they’ll play this epic song.
And maybe one day I can find the official lyrics to this song so I can check it against what I think they are.
