The votes are in, and there were quite a few songs with 2 votes or more. I was going to make this a Top 10, but I can't just randomly pick one of the 4 songs that received 2 votes each, so you're getting a Top 13 instead. There were two songs with 9 votes apiece, 2 songs with 4 votes, 5 songs with 3 votes, and 4 songs garnering 2 votes each, so I'm going to step up and be the tie-breaker! (Next year, I'll figure out a way to give each vote some weight, so I can be more fair about counting down.) I'll do 7 in this show, and 6 next time. 13. From The Underworld - The Herd - Frampton's pre-Humble Pie group. 12. Pushin' Too Hard - The Seeds - The fuzz guitar and the electric piano work shine in this one. 11. Incense and Peppermints - Strawberry Alarm Clock - A classic of the psychedelic era, but what does it mean? 10. Not Fade Away (live) - The Grateful Dead - The Dead turn a two minute Buddy Holly song into a 10 minute jam. 9. Hey Grandma - Moby Grape - Cool guitar and harmonies from The Dead For People Who Don't Like The Dead. 8. Open My Eyes - Nazz - Rundgren's early work shines in Nazz. 7. Sunrise (Turn On) - The Chesterfield Kings - A modern psychedelic garage band that sounds great, even if they don't bring anything new to the genre. That's all for part one!
