Music historian Derek See examines three post-psychedelic freakout 45 records from his collection: River Deep's "Take A Ride," Kannibal Komix "Neurotic Reaction," and Plant & See's "Put Out My Fire." Links to MP3s are included.
Certain aspects of music got VERY strange in the late '60's-early '70's; changing sounds and trends brought about big changes in the type of records that were pushed as hit singles.
Records intended for the AM radio market cranked up the ODD-ometer, and some downright FREAKY tracks were released which never became hits but survive as relics from a very different age. An age where remnants of the psychedelic sound mated with bubblegum songcraft and a pinch of the 'HEAVY' rock (without the ...'n' roll) fused together.
First up in this installment is River Deep's 'Take A Ride', which is essentially 2:35 of very dirty innuendo on top of a high energy beat track. This appears to be the only record by River Deep, so I'm assuming they were a studio concoction (as were so many of these types of records).

There have been dozens and dozens of versions of the spiritual Wade in the Water. This version, recorded in 1965 by the Ramsey Lewis Trio, is my favorite.
“Gets stuff done,” is a good way to be described by anybody. Especially by coworkers or bosses. Because whether you’re in finance or a children’s librarian, stuff needs to get done. But how do you make sure stuff gets done? You definitely can’t do all the stuff yourself, unless your company/organization/government office consists entirely of you. And […]
Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs? Not really, because that would be terrifying, but […]
