Wowza! Tripping with Joe on Monday morning.

WFMU Stan is on outer frontier of time for me but thanks for the reminder that there is much that WFMU has to offer that I've yet to delve into. Long live the archives!

Ralph McTell is always a goood source of story songs.

@emily: Indeed! @Tom: Glad you're liking this psychewhimsystorytelling.

Great show today Joe! I’ve never heard this album before- very cool
  Swag For Life Member 11:49am tadpoles:

IMHO English Psychedelia is so different to the American....much more invested in childhood memories and stories. Nothing like the 13th Floor Elevators.

Great story corner thanks Joe.

Finishing up with a psych band from New Jersey, not Old Jersey. :) Not too many hunchback segueways out there, you gotta take 'em where you find 'em.

@Brian: Ha ha ha!

@tadpoles 100% agree. It's almost as if the US version is about rebellion, the English more about skewed traditions and and the journey of the self.

Rick Wakeman's "Journey To The Center of the Earth" would fit in nicely. I used to listen to that over and over in my smoking days.
