We continue our discussion linking current music to 50 years ago though Jeff, on face value, thinks the connections are crazy. We throw some love at Sly and The Family Stone and Jeff recalls a link to kids television that proves to be accurate.
We took a break between recording the first and second halves of this episode and in the meantime Covid-19 reared its ugly head. That put a different spin on a song by Canadian's Elephant Stone. This discussion brought in a sitar sub-thread (bringing Harry Styles back for a cameo) and leads to sound-a-likes, plagarism and the Who's Tommy.
Other featured artists include Labrinth, Imagine Dragons, Sudan Archives, The Beatles, Vampire Weekend, The Stone Roses, George Harrison, The Chiffons, The Edwin Hawkins Singers, Dirty Honey, Jackyl, Greta Van Fleet, Led Zeppelin, Muddy Waters, The Shocking Blue, Bananarama and Mama Cass. And how does the song "Venus" connect to "Oh Susanna"?
