and now for the songs — October 16, 2021

212) Ike and Tina Turner — “Get It – Get It!” 

’67 single and ’66 album title track — smokin!

“Now if I can’t be first, don’t want to be no part at all. I just ain’t gonna sit on the sideline and watch you and your women have a ball. So if you think that I’m still that kind, you better get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, just get it out of your mind.”

213) The Accent — “Red Sky at Night” 

Rubble calls this October of ’67 single by the lads from Yorkshire “staggering, with monstrous bone-crunching lead guitar and deaths-head voices that swirl out of the mix” and half of “one of the best two-sided singles of the 60s.” Vernon Joynson similarly notes its “voices of doom.” Yup, yup and yup.

214) The Brain Train, “Me”

The Brain Train morphed into Clear Light, and this, the A-side of their only single (October of ‘67) is an “astounding psych classic from California” (per the 30 Seconds Before the Calico Wall comp) with “pulsating psychedelic punk alternat[ing] with monk-like chanting and furious lysergic guitar playing [– t]his one is guaranteed to fry your synapses!” (per Cosmic Mind at Play (https://cosmicmindatplay.wordpress.com/2013/08/10/classic-singles-52-the-brain-train-black-roses-me-1967/)).
