It’s been a long while since Stormy Monday has featured a single, long track, so this week we have a special treat I’ve been hanging on to for a while. It’s an old school psychedelic jam fest from the Fillmore West in 1969, a wild, all star event. Country Joe and the Fish are enhanced here by Jack Cassidy on bass and Mickey Hart on drums, along with guests Jorma Kaukonen, Jerry Garcia and Steve Miller all filtering onto the stage to partake in a monster event nearly forty minutes long.
The music is freaky, free form madness, with a number of little side trips and distinctive solos from the guest players- but the less said the better. It’s a must hear. So let’s get down to the business of enjoying this jam.
