A bit more than 50 years ago, West Coast hippie culture came to Washington DC in the form of a flyer (https://wapo.st/2RpxXwE ) announcing a gathering to be held at the park called P Street Beach & to be known as a Human Be-In, based on similar sunny gatherings sprouting up out west, in San Francisco, during that "Summer of Love". A tune like Embryonic Journey can instantly reconstitute the heady combination of sunny skies, temperate breezes and goofy optimism that permeated the day.
In the spirit of Auld Lang Syne, and with all the music that's been generated in the 50+ years since the release of Jefferson Airplane’s Surrealistic Pillow, I wondered what I'd find in my crate to sustain and develop the mood that its signature tune evokes ... Here's the result: an effortlessly atmospheric combination of downtempo & chillout vibes that flows like the trajectory of a dream. Feed your head.
