Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on October 31, 2021 Show #154
The roots of sitar blended into rock started in late 1964 when Brian Auger engineered the first recording of this classic song for this group. An authentic Indian sitar player was brought into the studio in addition to a tabla player. Unable to take them on the road for tours, the original version could not be played at concerts of this group...they did, however, improvise. Name the group and extra credit for the name of the track...
*We'll dip into a track from an album that perhaps demonstrated the best longevity and continued appeal of all the politically and socially charged music to arise from the late 60's. Just as pertinent today as it was back then, there are strong themes of environmentalism, generational divides and personal change and growth. The song explores the artist's own debate with his father as to whether a person should seek to change the world around them or try to carve out a place within it and live comfortably. Name the artist, extra credit for the name of the album and the song...
*This band's front man wrote this song after the group's 1965 tour of the U.S., one that was plagued with infighting, fatigue and a big musician's union conflict that kept them performing in the U.S. for another 4 years. The track describes a pretentious gentleman born to good fortune and was the first 'word-oriented' song he ever wrote. Name the song, the songwriter and the band...
*This artist cites composer Stephen Foster who wrote Oh Susanna and My Old Kentucky Home as his biggest musical influence. Born in Northern California, he was discharged from the Army Reserves in 1967 and celebrated by doing cartwheels in his front yard. After that, he embarked on an incredible career of music that continues today...Name the artist...
