Songs for Saturday pt16


On A Saturday - Keith West
(1968, Parlophone 45)

Perhaps best known for Excerpt from a Teenage Opera (aka Grocer Jack), Keith West was quite the songsmith in the late 60's. He begun his musical journey in a band called the In Crowd before joining the acclaimed psychedelic group Tomorrow alongside Steve Howe of Yes. I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of Tomorrow, but their remastered album "Tomorrow" features a selection of Keith's tunes which it is worth the buying just for those! Eagle eyed viewers (or geeks like myself) will also have spotted this band in the Pie Shop scene in "Smashing Time". A brilliant best of album "Excerpts from Groups & Sessions" is also available.

I like this a lot. This music makes me want to be in England in the 60's so bad!

A favorite of mine too, for any day of the week. Ron Wood plays bass and Aynsley Dunbar drums on this one!
