I really enjoy the weekend song selection and context .
It’s a go to for me after a busy week.
I can’t help noticing that your song selections are of a certain vintage.
Please consider early Grand Funk , Deep Purple and especially Chicago.
Perhaps the lyrics are a wash( maybe you could find some meaning)
But the clear driving base , guitar and vocals before MTV and computers is real.
If I may be so bold…I think you’re formative years were before the best decade 70’s

I appreciate your comment, Richard.

My selections are of a certain vintage because I am of a certain vintage. Music is a 'generational thing,' wouldn't you say? I am not familiar with Deep Purple, but I remember GFR and Chicago, the latter being especially impressive esp. because of their guitar player, Terry Kath. YouTuber comment: "This band was so good they named a city after them."

Kath's chops are well-displayed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUAYeN3Rp2E

I agree that the 70s was a good decade, musically speaking. But by that time I was less in touch because working on my career.

Maybe I'll showcase my 70s favorites next week.

Speaking of Take Five, composed by Paul Desmond, listen to 40 Days by the Dave Brubeck Quartet. There are two places to find it.

Look it up by searching for "1966 Germany 40 Days".
You can feel Christ in the beauty of the desert but weakening as his fast continues until the very obvious intrusion of the temptations of the tempter, the devil, which are rebuffed, and finally the angels ministered to him after Satan left.

It's all in the spectacular music.

The album "Time In" has an inferior version.
