Song of the Day - May 26, 2006

I am currently reading T.C. Boyle's Drop City, a tale that explores the hippie culture in the 60's. Music is a crucial element of the novel. While The Black Hollies did not exist then, their music would have easily made the scene. Cream, Yardbirds, Pretty Things, and The Kinks can all be heard in the riot of sound that The Black Hollies create on their album Crimson Reflections. The Black Hollies are the members of the Rye Coalition with the addition of drummer Scott Bolasci. "Crimson Reflections Through Looking Glass Mind" creates a psychedelic haze of fuzzed out sounds, bluesy guitar jams, and crashing cymbals. I need to find my bell bottoms, tie-dyed shirt, and rose colored shades and mellow out to the sounds of The Black Hollies. Click here to listen.
