on 8 Miles I found out the song was supposedly an idea started by Gene Clark and McGuinn said he was "playing the 12-string Rickenbacker to sound like a saxophone"....cool....

JULIE DRISCOLL, with Brian Auger & trinity






Does anyone remember Julie -- she pretty much summed up British psychedelia.

Julie Tippetts (born Julie Driscoll, 8 June 1947, London, England) is an English singer and actress, known for her 1960s versions of Bob Dylan's "This Wheel's on Fire", and Donovan's "Season of the Witch", both with Brian Auger & The Trinity. She and Auger had previously worked in Steampacket, with Long John Baldry and Rod Stewart.


....listen and read on....

Season Of The Witch
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpizS9h-1Xk&feature=relatedJulie




"This Wheel's on Fire" reached number five in the United Kingdom. With distortion, the imagery of the title and the group's dress and performance, this version came to represent the psychedelic era in British music. Driscoll recorded the song again in the early 90s with Adrian Edmondson as the theme to the BBC comedy series Absolutely Fabulous, whose main characters are throwbacks to that era.

Since the 1970s Driscoll has concentrated on experimental vocal music, married jazz musician Keith Tippett and collaborated with him. Her name is now 'Julie Tippetts', thus using the original spelling of her husband's surname. She participated in Keith Tippett's big band Centipede and, in 1974, took part in Robert Wyatt's Theatre Royal Drury Lane concert; released a solo album, Sunset Glow in 1975;[1] and was lead vocalist[2] on Carla Bley's album Tropic Appetites and in John Wolf Brennan's “HeXtet".

Later in the 1970s she toured with her own band, and recorded and performed as one of the vocal quartet 'Voice', with Maggie Nichols, Phil Minton and Brian Eley. -wiki





"Driscoll is an English actress and singer born in London on June 8 1947.
She debuted in 1963 with pop single "Take Me by the Hand".
In 1965 she joined Steampacket with Rod Stewart, Long John Baldry and organist Brian Auger. After Steampacket dissolved, Julie Driscoll signed on with the Brian Auger Trinity, reaching number 5 in the UK in 1968 with "This Wheel's on Fire."
Nicknamed "The Face" by the British music press, Driscoll soon left Auger for a solo career."

1969...hottest band in the NW...Spokane, Washington psychedelia...

LOCKSLEY HALL



LISTEN to "BOY" here...scroll down....to "Listen to Boy"
or d/l the vinyl rip--unreleased album at "get it here" (except as limited edition in 1996)


Locksley Hall was one of the better known psychedelic bands in the Pacific Northwest during their existence from 1967 thru' 1970. The album was recorded in 1969 at the legendary Audio Recorders in Seattle with long time Northwest guitarist Ned Neltner (Mark Five, Gas Company, Junior Cadillac) producing and Sonics engineer Kearny Barton at the console. It remained unreleased until the limited edition came out in 1996. The album reminds us of every band who ever played the Fillmore West in the late sixties and blends together elements of It's A Beautiful Day, Jefferson Airplane and Big Brother and The Holding Co. Recommended.
(taken from "Fuzz, Acid & Flowers")

While a lot of co-ed groups of the era sound rather generic, Locksley Hall manages to escape identity in a slightly different way. This album plays almost like a sampler of West Coast music. On various songs they sound like Country Joe & The Fish, Jefferson Airplane, The Charlatans, Big Brother & The Holding Company, and the Association. Despite the crudeness of the recordings there’s a definite sense of professionalism here. They’re more appealing as a hard rock band than a soft rock band, but the only real dud here is the good timey song that ends side one. Both the male and female vocals are quite good, though as is often the case they sound much better apart than together. There is some excellent guitar playing here and a few very solid songs, most notably a long rocker on side one. The mix of styles is a bit disconcerting, but overall, this is much better than a lot of genre albums that did end up getting major label releases at the time. The LP was recorded in Seattle for Epic in the late 1960s but not released at the time. [AM]

And of course, Locksley Hall was originally a deeply reflective poem by Tennyson:

Hey this is like Eng 201!...

Locksley looks like they're pretty contemporary now with lines like this in Tennyson's poem:

Till the war-drum throbb'd no longer, and the battle-flags were furl'd In the Parliament of man, the Federation of the world.
There the common sense of most shall hold a fretful realm in awe, And the kindly earth shall slumber, lapt in universal law.

We've been in constant war now for quite a while. The psychedelics no doubt wanted this global vision....

The Space Cowboy....

Steve Miller Band

His sixties psych rock albums were all we hoped for...Children of The Future, Sailor, Brave New World....with an ace backing band including Boz Scaggs on his first album Children Of The Future (recorded in London)

Steve may have deservedly had some mega hits with some great songs in the 70's but he was never the same for me...guess you had to be there in the 60's ...just gimme steve on guitar and rock on!

Brave New World

Children Of The Future
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDMM6UuIFkw

The style [Children Of The Future] is a mixture of blues and psychedelic rock reflecting the ambience of the British blues revival, not surprisingly considering the album was recorded in London (at Olympic Studios). Rolling Stone described the first side as being "constructed like Sgt Pepper".[3] Writing in Crawdaddy!, Peter Knobler called the album "a triple moment of experience, knowledge, inspiration."[4] However, many of the songs had been written earlier in 1967-68 when Miller was working as a janitor at a Texas music studio.[5] "Baby's Callin' Me Home" was written by Boz Scaggs who later rose to considerable global fame in his own right.

And from the great Sailor album....

Most definitely a part of the late-'60s West Coast psychedelic blues revolution that was becoming hipper than hip, Steve Miller was also always acutely aware of both the British psychedelic movement that was swirling in tandem and of where the future lay, and how that would evolve into something even more remarkable. The result of all those ideas, of course, came together on 1968's magnificent Sailor LP. What was begun on Children of the Future is more fully realized on Sailor, most notably on the opening "Song for Our Ancestors," which begins with a foghorn and only gets stranger from there. Indeed, the song precognizes Pink Floyd's 1971 opus "Echoes" to such an extent that one wonders how much the latter enjoyed Miller's own wild ride. Elsewhere, the beautiful, slow "Dear Mary" positively shimmers in a haze of declared love, while the heavy drumbeats and rock riffing guitar of "Living in the U.S.A." are a powerful reminder that the Steve Miller Band, no matter what other paths they meandered down, could rock out with the best of them. And, of course, this is the LP that introduced many to the Johnny "Guitar" Watson classic "Gangster of Love," a song that would become almost wholly Miller's own, giving the fans an alter ego to caress long before "The Joker" arose to show his hand. Rounding out Miller's love of the blues is an excellent rendering of Jimmy Reed's "You're So Fine." At their blues-loving best, Sailor is a classic Miller recording and a must-have -- especially for the more contemporary fan, where it becomes an initiation into a past of mythic proportion. - by Amy Hanson ; AllMusic

And as the 60's gave way to the 70's..Steve came up with a favorite that I initially thought was Traffic!

I think that the first five Steve Miller Band albums are classics. The quality was not as consistent after these albums but he did a great show at The Rainbow in London around 1973. One of the great guitarists in my opinion.

I agree, the first few Steve Millers are awesome! I used to have that Children of The Future gatefold LP, and have many of their cds now, but love the early stuff much!

Julie Driscoll was utterly delectable. I saw her with the Brian Augur Trinity on several occasions during the late 60s and she was stunning, both vocally and aesthetically. She was also very tolerant, agreeing to sign her name (with fountain pen) on my alcohol-filled arm on one occasion. I can't say that I ever thought she "summed up" British psychedelia, however - fashion and style maybe, but not psychedelia.
