Damn… Tom Jones not only does justice among our 1969 Hippie Elite’s music here, he sings the living shit out of Long Time Gone.
David Crosby actually looks on with amazement here while watching Tom wail but really don’t know why, Jones himself was on fire during this period. In fact all looked a little surprised as if they really hadn’t expected the performance Jones gave.
Have to admit when Janis appeared on his show and remember him doing a song with her and the band, it just didn’t seem to fit. But with CSN&Y on the contrary he just became a part of the group very comfortably.
The cream of the crop of all music here.
Almost Cut My Hair…Hell No. Still am that same long-haired hippie chick. Just almost a 56 year-old one now. Who cares. This song and Deja Vu takes me back to a place where frankly I still want to be….But then we’ve all been there before.
