wonderful, the full version, Inna Gadda! I remember it was so long (the whole side of an album), the radios would only play a 2 or 3 minute stump of it. Or sometimes they would play the full version late at night if the DJ wanted to go do something else for awhile. Same for Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant.The song is kind of dark & brooding. There's an older movie called "Manhunter" directed by Michael Mann that used it to great effect. Based on a book called "Red Dragon" by the guy who wrote the Hannibal novels, it's kind of a prequel to Silence of the Lambs.
I have it on CD..and in the liner notes it talks about how they named it.. it is such a funny story.
Great tune--- interesting visuals. Psycho-delic
Funny thing--as soon as I looked at the run-time for the video, I KNEW what it was! LOVE IT! We were lucky in the St Louis area then-there was actually a station that did play the entire song. Oh--I still have the album from way-back-when, LOL!
ahhhhh so there is a hippie in there....I am going to find my tie dye and ripped jeans..thanks...I needed that.....;-)
