From: Stephen R Webb
Series: Stuck in the Psychedelic Era
Length: 01:57:59

Album Rock-The Golden Years

Logo_small This week the entire first segment is set up to sound like the early days of album rock radio (c.1970), with tracks from Sugarloaf, Traffic, Mountain and more. We also have an acoustic set (including a track from the rare first McKendree spring album), a group set (Eric Burdon and the Animals) and of course a couple of sets that progress through the years. And just for the fun of it, we finish the night with a pair of tunes from the irrepressable (although their record company did try, several times) Turtles, featuring Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan, who would go on to become known as Flo and Eddie.
