Diesel Park West celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love with the release of their 4 song Summer of Love EP (Strataville - 14/7/17). Played live in the studio, this is their collective touchstone of songs – those played in rehearsal or jams right from the beginning.
Lead track ‘For What It’s Worth’ (Revisited) is surely as prescient today as it was 50 years ago in the hands of Buffalo Springfield. We’re still sitting here wondering how it's going to pan out or if it ever can. Next up is the Youngbloods classic ‘Let's Get Together’ followed by The Jefferson Airplane's ‘Somebody To Love’ - one of the first big hits to come out of the US West Coast counterculture scene. The EP closes in style with ‘Alone Again Or’ from Love album Forever Changes.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer Of Love, we've recorded 4 of our favourite songs from 1967. Played live in the studio, this is our collective touchstone of songs – those we've played in rehearsal or jams right from the beginning.
