I got a certain little girl she's on my mind
No doubt about it she looks so fine
She's the best girl that I ever had
She's gonna make me feel so bad

She's got lovin' like quicksand
Only took one touch of my hand
Blow my mind and I'm in so deep
I can't eat and I can't sleep
Oh I can't sleep

Na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na, yeah

Hush, hush
I thought I heard her callin' my name now
Hush
She took my heart but I love her just the same now
Hush, hush
Thought I heard her callin' my name now
Hush, hush
I need her lovin' but I'm not to blame now

I got her in the morning
Late in the evening

Hush
I thought I heard her callin' my name now
Hush
She took my heart but I love her just the same now
Hush, hush
Thought I heard her callin' my name now
Hush, hush
I need her lovin' but I'm not to blame now

I got her in the morning
Late in the evening

Na na na na na na na na na na

Wow. There are so many tunes that conjure up the memories of the days of dancing till closing time, several nights a week,  in the late 60s and early 70s. But THIS one. We really did kinda take over the dance floor. There was one club we frequented (in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) where, as soon as this one started, the regulars would  clear  the floor and yell out for us as we entered into our  HUSH 'trance' dance. The owner of that club actually offered to pay my then-boyfriend and me if we would commit to dancing on certain nights every week. EMPLOY us to go out and have a great time! WITH free drinks! He said he sold a lot more drinks and people danced a lot more and stayed later when we were there. Talk about yer forks in the road. (We said no.)
 

Who knows, you might have ended up on the Canadian version of Soul Train ?

Broken radio; luxury! We dreamed of a broken radio. 
Rod Evans went on to sing for Captain Beyond, which I believe is one of the most underrated prog rock bands out there.

We lived for three months in a brown paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six o'clock in the morning, clean the bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down mill for fourteen hours a day week in-week out. When we got home, our Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt!

I fell in love with the B3 listening to soul music in Memphis as a teenager. And then to encounter it as a hippie in college in this genre-Ho Lee Fuk! And I can (read, used to) hear a live B3 in San Francisco at the Royal Cuckoo 7 nights a week. Covid, please go away. And take that Orange thang with you.

Amen to that. Their first several albums were creative in all respects-lyrics, composition,  hooks and showed a depth that may not have had wide appeal but was embraced by many of us for the stark creativity and the "transportation" quality that could rocket us to another realm. And then they got commercial. 
Kula who?
Wow! Haven't heard this in ages. Memories...

This has been a pretty great set Bill! I love eclectic and your mix of new and old,   This little run of  "old ecclectic" altogether, Deep Purple, Carole King, Muddy Waters, Black Sabbath.........what a time capsule! 

Best use of an organ!

My first new car was a 73 VW Bus on my 21st B Day and I had a Lear 8 Track in it.  It had a headphone jack in it, too.  Headphone jacks became illegal sometime later.  Cruising down the freeway with open air Sennheiser's  ya buddy !
My hearing hasn't been the same since the 1974 concert {#Eek}  {#Roflol}

RIP Jon Lord    {#Meditate}
This is one of those songs I've heard hundreds of times but never realized it was Deep Purple, who I always thought of as one-hit wonders with the rather awful "Smoke on the Water." This is much better!

Amazing the way some people let religion push them into living on a knife's edge between salvation and damnation. I'm sure it gives their lives drama and meaning but they must wonder from time to time "Am I supposed to live on my knees and in fear?" 
Yup, always thought this should be played before or after Charlatans' "The Only One I Know" --  AWESOME, then AND now!  Hush...Hush...
Nice Surprise. Good one

Fun with Hammond 
{#Bananapiano}
HAHAHAHA!  I get it!  Was waiting for the familiar rush of Deep Purple with the last tune ... and now here it is!  (Last tune = Charlatans, Only One I Know)

Oh yeah:  Dodge Dart with a tiny slant six and a dead yellow jacket in the dashboard speaker that bounced around on the woofer all summer.

The very top of the song is a howling dog. In 1970(?) Eddie Stoberski and I camped out in his suburban backyard and at midnight blasted the opening seconds over and over on his (or maybe it was my) portable phonograph (remember those?) and had every dog in the neighborhood bellowing. Mischievous fun!
 
Cruising in my 73' Cuda listening to them on my cassette deck.

 I see what you did! Charlatans UK, "The Only One I Know" segueing into this tune. Very nice! {#Bananapiano}
Colossal! What a groove from Jon Lord & the boys - they don't make 'em like that any more! {#Dance}

Damn, I missed it!!

Olds Delta 88 with this in the 8 track. Cruising the town, looking for a party....
 Crusing in Al's 70 GTO with Deep Purple playing loud.   As soon as we saw girls, pop in Bread 8 Track.  
wouldn't be caught dead listening to these guys during my Dead days, a sacrilege, but now I can admit I sort of like them all along
takes me back !!! 
SAW DEEP PURPLE IN LOS ANGELES IN 1967 WITH CREAM.....MEMORABLE

Tommy Bolin wasn't playing with Deep Purple at the time "Made In Japan" was recorded; that was still very much Ritchie Blackmore.

Interesting juxtaposition Bill!  When the The Only One I Know by The Charlatans came on,
I was fooled into thinking it was Hush{#Drummer}
