Dr. Rhino's Picks #34
I hear y’all shouting at me in the street, “Dr. Rhino, when are you going to give me some love?!?” Well, today is the day. Picks #34 is all about that band from Los Angeles who tore up the Sunset Strip in the mid-‘60s, influenced the Doors and created some of the best psychedelic rocknroll you’ll ever hear. That’s right, I’m talking ‘bout Love, with Arthur Lee, Bryan MacLean, Johnny Echols, Snoopy Pfisterer, and Ken Forssi. I’ve also thrown in a handful of later tracks (post-classic lineup). If, upon reading that line, there are now purists out there reaching for a blunt object…never fear. I only picked the awesome ones.
ABOUT DR. RHINO
A young Dr. Rhino first encountered the magic of song whilst being born in the front seat of a Lincoln Continental. As the attending physician recalls, the tune was “Touch Me In The Morning” by Diana Ross. It was a mind-blower. Over the years, Dr. Rhino listened to many, many more songs. And, after several summers of diggin’ music, making the scene & a stint in Attica, the good doctor joined Rhino Records. A remarkable career of taste & empathy ensued. Dr. Rhino now spends his time hitting bull’s-eyes, making it rain and assembling playlists for you. (Yes, you!)
