    • Our 1968 pop-psyche rarity really is just that. Motivation featured guitarist Steve York and only released this one single, a cover of the 1967 U.S. hit Come On Down (Direction 7" 1968).

        • We finish with a delightful new discovery of mine, New York dream pop band Lightning Bug. First, we have Lullaby No. 2, from their debut LP Floaters (self released casse/digital 2015), buy here: https://lightning-bug.bandcamp.com/album/floaters. Then we finish with the official video for The Onely Ones (sic) (self released digital single 2020), buy here: https://lightning-bug.bandcamp.com/track/the-onely-ones. I love this band. Until next week ...

          • We start today with San Francisco legends The Grateful Dead (https://www.dead.net/) and their superb live version of St. Stephen, from their fourth LP Live/Dead (Warner Bros 2XLP 1969). The track ends abruptly as it segues into Turn Eleven.

            • Next up, our 1968 pop-psyche rarity comes from Jethro Tull ( http://jethrotull.com/). This is Aeroplane, the B-side of their debut single Sunshine Day (MGM 7" 1968). Apparently, the producer so hated their name that he credited the single to Jethro Toe, and that was the band name it was released under. Great track though.

              • Pale Saints hailed from my adopted home city of Leeds, and this is the lovely Thread Of Light, from their second LP, the awesome In Ribbons (4AD 1992). Hope you like it too.

                  • We finish with a complete change of style, with a couple of new tracks released this year. I Think You’re Awesome (https://www.ithinkyoureawesome.net/) are a Danish indie jazz group formed in Aarhus in 2009. This year they teamed up with Taïga String Quartet (https://www.taigastringquartet.com/) who reside in Aarhus & Berlin, to record the quite delightful Suite to be You and Me (Jaeger Community Music 2020). We finish with the opening two tracks, Pt. 1 The Distance and the official video for Pt. 2 The Mill. Hope you like them.Buy here: https://itya.bandcamp.com/album/suite-to-be-you-and-me.

                        • Now, a real rarity. I know nothing about David Morgan except he released this one single, True-To-Life (Parlophone 7" 1968). This is the delightful B-side, Dawning. Beautiful.

                          • Our 68 Brit pop-psyche rarity comes from Timon. Real name Stephen John Murray, he played in the Liverpool folk scene before moving to London in 1968 to record his debut single, Bitter Thoughts Of Little Jane (Pye 7" 1968) from which comes this delightful B-side, Rambling Boy, which I really love. He later worked under aliases Tymon Murray and Tymon Dogg, the latter of which he used when he worked with The Clash's Joe Strummer.

                            • ... and speaking of The Clash (nifty segue, yes?), we finish with a brace of singles from 1977, their second and third, Remote Control (CBS 7" 1977) and the official video for Complete Control (CBS 7" 1977). Until next week ...

                              • Some marvellous stuff there again agutterfan.
                                Here's a group that I hadn't really heard of (although the individual members are familiar to me).
                                I don't understand how Roy Phillips didn't achieve more fame. Such a rich, soulful voice!

                                  I'd never heard of him either.
