1969, part 4

Much more than the other mixes in this series, this one is constructed for pure pleasure, and I think it is fairly successful in that respect. See what you think.

  • That Bob Dylan sure can write a catchy tune. “Country Pie,” clocking in at 1:37, is one delectable little morsel, and that guitar line…tasty, tasty.
  • If you’d have told me 20 years ago that I would one day make a mix where the Doors segue into the Grateful Dead, I’d have told you to go fuck yourself. I was just that angry of a young man.
  • Who the hell are Marguerita and Tom, and what is Lou trying to say about them?
