spirit 1969 and 1992. live and promo.

when we was young: oh, so very young: we were psychedelic punks: and we used to love wire, danny and the dressmakers, the 39 clocks, nico päffgen, the thunderbyrds, paranormale tonbandstimmen, the church of lennon and cale spedding pistols, marc bolan, lol coxhill and spirit. yes: spirit were one of the very few bands to survive the sixties and to be some thing like important to the seventies psycho beats. only a few days later we discovered thousands of other truthful minds. more no fun at long last.

today you might want to listen to eight tracks the spirit recorded on monday the 1st of september 1969 at the texas international pop festival. this "oh boy"-cd is way too short, of course, but no more sounds seem to be bequeathed from these days.

listen to: (1) fresh garbage, (2) elijah, (3) improvisation, (4) ground hog, (5) grammophone man, (6)dream within a dream, (7) i got aline on you and (8) aren´t you glad. randy california (guitar and vocals), ed cassidy (drums), john locke (keyboards) (?), mark andes (bass) and jay ferguson (vocals, percussion) (?). listen, please.
