Pandora The Explora

Doing the Pandora shuffle.
Check 5...and see what the fates allow.




"Nelly the Elephant" -
Nektar
Down To Earth (1974)

Entertaining instrumental with a krautrock circus ringmaster pronouncement is far more interesting than one might expect.   Tasty brass leaps in and out with ear candy.





"Hands of Doom"
Black Sabbath
Past Lives (2002)

Not one of my favorites...but it's early Sabbath.  Rarely heard and live at that!  It's wonderfully somber with trademark tempo changes.





"We're Turning Again"
Frank Zappa
You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol 6 (1992)

 Kind of a funky thing. Great line:  "...they were mellow; they were yellow. They were wearing smelly blankets. They were Donovan fans."  Good stuff...so wtf?





"Sailing"
Sutherland Brothers & Quiver
Lifeboat (1972)

Pleasant enough, but quickly brings to mind Rod the Mod's version.  Sutherland's version wins by a nut.





"Aos Pes Da Cruz"
Miles Davis
Quiet Nights (1963)

Romantic jazzy bossa nova groove-vibe goin' on.  Nothing chancy or dangerous from Miles...still a nice one to share a drink for two.


Your turn!
