Classic Rock Orgy – Double Shots Edition IV

Comments Off on Mix Tape: Classic Rock Orgy – Double Shots Edition IV

Continuing to give ya what market-testin’, status quo program directors just won’t, the Impound digs into dusty grooves to bring you some late 60s keepers from Traffic, Steppenwolf and the ever-under-appreciated Spirit before cranking up the electric guitars with Robin Trower, Montrose and Nazareth, and then heading South – literally and figuratively – with Skynyrd celebrating the thing the ladies “love the most” and talkin’ some sensible political skepticism before Patrick Simmons shows he and The Doobie Brothers had the blueprint for half of Kenny Chesney’s stupid country-island reverie hits way back in 1972 – and Tom Johnston, no slouch himself, delivers one of DI’s favorite deep tracks, a blues that gets string section basted and lovely in the tail section. But, we kick this chapter off with long forgotten U.K. powerhouse Stray working up some Blue Cheer-like mojo.

And below, that’s a young Helen Mirren in garter belt and stockings taking a carousel twirl. This is DI’s definition of an E-Ticket attraction. If this can’t spark an orgy then we’ve been very poorly informed about orgies.
