2000 Light Years From Home


2021 Charity Shop Purchases 87 -2000 Light Years From Home - Mojo Compilation

Named after a track from the Rolling Stone's 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request  this Mojo compilation from February 2018 is sub-titled UK Rock Trips Out  1967-1970.

The Pretty Things started off as a pure rhythm and blues band but by the late 60's they had embraced psychedelia including a 1968 soft rock opera S.F. Sorrow on which this song features.

Sadie's Expression were one of the main contributors to the Southend music scene from the  mid 60's to the early 70's. Presumably various members of Dr Feelgood were in the audience at one time or another.Taken from Nice -an Anthology of Peter Eden Productions.

Blone on Blonde were a guitar-led  psychedelic band from Newport, South Wales and named after the Bob Dylan album of the same name. Taken from 1970's Rebirth the second of their three album releases

Maybe this will stop the naysayer's like George and Spence  who feel that I am anti- Prog Rock. The cease and desist order has been put on hold meantime!

The Pretty Things - She Says Good Morning

Sadie's Expression - Yesterday Was Such a Lovely Day

Blonde on Blonde - Heart Without a Home


  1. I'm not sure if you're anti-prog, but you're no fan

  2. ....and this is a lot better than yesterday's dreary tracks

  3. I was lucky enough to be at the Pretty Things' last ever gig back in 2018. Great band.

    1. Interestingly Barack Obama, Lionel Messi and the late Felix Bowness all said that to me as well

  4. Result! Some good tracks here - bands 2 and 3 are unknown to me (call myself a prog fan?) Listening to this kind of stuff take me back to the early 70s which is where my lads think I still dwell! Kids eh they're so cruel.

  5. Yesterday Was Such a Lovely Day is very depressing, and written by Bill Fay.
