YOUNG RASCALS - SUENO
Just had a request for some psychedelic pop and I've been WAITING for the right opportunity to unleash this gem. Right on the flip side of the massive hit "Groovin" is this song which is basically a commercial for LSD and free love. Kinda funny that this was released on the same label that upon signing the Velvet Underground in 1969 stated "you must tone down the drug references". This song also tends to get overlooked when great psych classics get mentioned. Too bad, as it outlasts any novelty factor as it's a great song with unique and interesting instrumentation arrangement and harmonies.
