Janis Joplin - Me & Bobby McGee Janis Joplin - Me & Bobby McGee

In my childhood, this was something my dad would play somewhat often on an 8 track. I can still remember the ripples the label on the cassette had. That’s kind of weirdly specific memory, but there it is.

The YouTube Rabbit Hole: Phil Donahue and the Peter Criss Imposter -- 1991 The YouTube Rabbit Hole: Phil Donahue and the Peter Criss Imposter -- 1991

I wish I would have caught this on the original air date — I would have had time. I would likely have been enjoying my post-school snack of microwaved cheese and crackers. Is Donahue even still alive?

Hippies -- Must We Understand Them? Hippies -- Must We Understand Them?

An important question.

The Basement Tapes: Vol. III The Basement Tapes: Vol. III

Third and last volume here. This covers the “college years,” or basically approximately 1-3 years after everything in the first two posts. There were no bands to speak of, yet for recording it was somewhat of a prolific period.

This is a very good promo.

Friday Chill: "Singapore Sling" Friday Chill: "Singapore Sling"

A kind of throwaway track I recorded when noodling around with some presets on a synth-type instrument that was new at the time. The vibe is quite relaxed in nature.

Eighty Percent Human covering 'Billie Jean' by Michael Jackson (Inspired by Chris Cornell) Eighty Percent Human covering 'Billie Jean' by Michael Jackson (Inspired by Chris Cornell)

When I fired up the car tonight the radio came on and a cover of Billy Jean was playing. In just a few bars I tried Soundhounding and Shazaming it to see who it was, but nothing came up.
