Should you want a separate Psychedelic Soul list I would take that request under consideration.


Maybe I'll do the psychedelic Soul list myself.

Nice touch. Just like the Republicans with the voters photo ID stuff, you have found a sneaky way to keep out a lot of the black people.


To imply racism is not only an uninformed comment ( see my many Jazz & Blues lists and the Black artists that dominate those lists ) but also borders on grounds for a temporary or permanent ban from this site based on this site's agreed upon rules of conduct. You always choose to skate on very thin ice as pertains to interaction with those who post on these threads. Be careful. Call this an official warning !

I love much of the music in this list. Grew up with it from the start of my teenage years. I definitely had hippy tendencies in my day, and this list represents a whole bunch of very deep and meaningful memories lol. Who needed acid when you had these tracks for trippin' out . Well, a few of my friends, but I never got into it.

Now on memory lane working through the list on YouTube. Interstalla Overdrive - Is it the short or the long version in the list here?

Will be interesting to find some gems I never heard before :)

Oh and I agree Strawberry Fields for Ever up the list!!

The 9 minute studio version that appears on the "Piper at the Gates of Dawn" LP, most likely.

That being said, there are several tremendous live performances of the song that are floating around on the net.

I adore Black Sabbath's Planet Caravan. Kinda psychedelic soft metal.

Lew has made it pretty clear that Bruce isn't getting banned.

You completely ignored the question of why Sly & The Family Stone isn't on the list. How does "I Want To Take You Higher" not qualify?

About the song: "I Want to Take You Higher" opens with a bluesy guitar riff played by Freddie Stone. The song, one of the most upbeat recordings in the Family Stone canon, is a remake of sorts of "Higher", a song from the band's 1968 Dance to the Music LP. "Higher" itself has its origins in "Advice", a song Sly Stone co-wrote and arranged for Billy Preston's album The Wildest Organ In Town in 1966.

"Higher" made the setlist for the band's performance at Woodstock alongside "Dance to the Music" and "Music Lover"; Sly Stone used the song during a memorable interlude, during which he had the entire Woodstock crowd repeating, at three in the morning, the song's frantic cry of "higher!"

Even though it was a b-side, "I Want to Take You Higher" became a Top 40 hit of its own in 1970. That same year, Ike & Tina Turner released a cover of the song that became a hit as well, peaking 4 spots above the original Family Stone recording on the US pop charts (at #34), and one position below the original on the R&B singles chart.

Great song, great band, great musicians, not psychedelic.

If you 're gonna quote Wikipedia, why leave out the most important part in relation to this discusion? I think it's exceedingly disingenuous of you to not put the section below in your post.

Legacy
From May 10, 1997 through February 28, 1998, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum presented their first temporary exhibit entitled I Want to Take You Higher: The Psychedelic Era 1965-1969


Obviously "I Want To Take You Higher" is considered to be a psychedelic record.

Disingenuous ? interesting though wrong choice of words. The definition of that word is 'not candid or straightforward'. Obviously, I couldn't be more straightforward and candid by quoting word for word the description of this particular song as referenced in Wiki to it's placement on the US Popcharts & on it's R&B charts placement.R&B/Pop !.....And that IS the most important part of this discussion.....the song's description.
The song ! Not somebody's choice for the title of a museum exhibit or the title of a book that an author and his editior thought would be a good marketing tool to grab potential readers attention. The song and I repeat, great song, great band, great musicians, not psychedelic.

You should definitely check out these bands then:
Fifty Foot Hose, United States Of America, Ultimate Spinach, The Red Krayola, It's A Beautiful Day, and Silver Apples.
Rick has gotten me into so many of these "obscure" artists....

I think it deserves a mention on this list.

Editors note:
Thanks for the suggestion but I'll pass.
