The Byrds “Captain Soul” – let’s boogie

Now, as you may recall, we find Wednesday to be one of those tough sort of days – a long way into the week and a long way still from the weekend.  Wednesday afternoon is quite widely agreed to be one of the least groovy parts of the whole day.  So, as a balm to our sagging consciousness when there’s something worth hearing that is also an instrumental we like to groove down that channel.  Sad to tell the good instrumental is currently in short supply, so we’re heading way back when, deep into the ‘Fifth Dimension‘ (watch your step – we don’t want you to fall through that mystical tripping-hole) to find The Byrds in an uncharacteristically soulful-blues-grooving mode.  Nestling between a very decent version of ‘Hey Joe‘ and the delicate beauty of ‘John Riley‘ there is this chugging little number.    If you’re going to froog, do it discretely, ok?

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
