The Third Mind, “Groovin’ Is Easy”

Here’s another post of mine from Larry Haley’s The Bop Shop.

The Third Mind continue to dig into 1960s classics with their slow-burn take on The Electric Flag’s “Groovin’ Is Easy”. I fell in love with Jessie Sykes’ voice on “Morning Dew” from the Mind’s first album, and here she turns what almost felt like mansplaining in the Flag’s version to something more… tender…

Guitar note: on all Third Mind songs, Dave Alvin is in the left channel, Victor Krummenacher in the right. And the video, which conjures up what we used to see on the walls of the Boston Tea Party, was created by Victor.
