    Thanks Berni. I had my 65th birthday a couple of weeks ago. Bought myself a present yesterday. A Cordoba Guitarlele. Debuting here. It's tuned A-A .But I did a drop tuning of the low A to G here. It's such a punchy instrument. Unamplified here but It sings out. Really enjoying it. Tim Hardin song from 1967. I think he and the song was of the zeitgeist.

    I think There But For Fortune by Phil Ochs expresses the Hippy ideals quite well.

    Hello, Berni ... and thank you for hosting! This is the trippiest, hippiest song I know, and it doesn't originate from San Francisco, but from Birmingham (a city in the English Midlands) - the reference to "sixpence for the phone" is a dead giveaway! It was the debut album of rock band, "Traffic" in 1967 ... they disbanded two years later. I tried to capture a sort of hippie vibe with an added shruti box, wind chimes and sleigh bells.

    Hi Berni, happy birthday! I hope this is the sort of thing you had in mind.
    It's Itchycoo Park, by Small Faces. Apparently it was briefly banned by the BBC for the drug references, but then unbanned when the band explained it was about a piece of waste ground they used to go to. Supposedly the "getting high" reference is from the feeling they got while bunking off school. Whatever... Not that I'm recommending that, of course . Also, the only mind altering substance I had while recording this was caffeine.



    This is on an 8 string baritone, with a tenor, some keyboard and some backing vocals.

    Val broke the seal on Traffic, so here’s another ... 1968 ... Dave Mason wrote it. Everybody’s covered it!
