Friday Freak-Out: From 1967, Hungarian musician Gabor Szabo's psychedelic guitar/sitar experimental jazz number "Walking On Nails." (Video unrelated to original song.) It's on Szabo's Impulse! album Jazz Raga -- an influential melding of eastern influences, Latin rhythm, pop-rock, and trippy groove -- that was lovingly reissued in 2010 by Light In The Attic. It also features a funky cover of the Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black." Gabor Szabo's "Jazz Raga" (Amazon)
