    Carol Of Harvest-Put On Your Nightcap
    From the self titled debut album Carol Of Harvest. When I first heard this album, and song, I thought it was some long lost 60's obscure folk psych treasure(but, so much more). Turns out it is a 1978 obscure folk psych treasure. One of my favorite albums of all time, and the song is 16:02 of pure delight.

    The all-female band Birtha, who could rock just like the boys. From their self-titled 1972 album.

    :edthumbs: The bass playing on this can only be described as an absolute tour-de-force. I highly recommend listening on headphones:

    The Hollies and Cable Car, B-side of Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress. I love the arrangement and production on this one.

    I think this one will count as obscure. 1975 Gong...Cat in Clark Shoes. I play it quite often now that I'm spinning vinyl again.

    Is it just me or does the vocalist sound almost identical to Tom Johnston of the Doobies?
