I fear people aren't going to remember Sky Saxon,so maybe
if I post some of his music this will remind how cool The Seeds were.
This is a 3 disc set, that came out in 1996, and was pretty much the
ultimate set you could find. Disc 1 and 2 feature all of the great studio
music you'd expect: Can't Seem To Make You Mine,No Escape,the
wonderful Evil Hoodoo, Pushin' Too Hard, Try To Understand,
Excuse,Excuse, Mr. Farmer, Nobody Spoil My Fun,
Rollin' Machine, Out Of The Question, and many many more.
Disc 3 will start out with 11 recorded live tracks which
does not say what year,but sound vintage 1960's to me.The rest of
Disc 3 have the later period 60's material that never quite had
the same impact as the "Pushin' Too Hard" single yet still rock with
the same intensity. Disc 3 is still fine garage/psychedelic 60's with
The Wind Blows Your Hair, Falling Off The Edge(Of My Mind),
Satisfy You, and Lose Your Mind. I did in fact, lose my mind when
I saw Sky Saxon perform a few years ago. They did quite a long set
of music,which was amazing, and while watching them perform with my
eyes closed it sounded like I was transported back in the 60's.
The sad part is, he moved back to the USA,and lived recently in
Austin,Texas, which to me, sounded like he was going to do a lot more
touring and shows here, and that's a real shame that people are not
going to see him perform again. I should post some of my photos
from the live show, he was really energetic, and fun.
