Chris Robinson Brotherhood - Big Moon Ritual/The Magic Door (2012)

Do Inhale

How close to whatever one's Heaven is this must be: having the leisure and love that allows you to play and record a couple of albums of 60s/70s rock, blues, countryrock and psychedelia for the sheer fun of it all. It is homage and recreation and celebration and sustained at exactly the level such leisure and love will produce in its laid back and having-a-great-time way. We should be angry that anyone has such a musical sinecure's occupation, but with Bank Fat Cats and other nasty misanthropists enjoying themselves at our catastrophic expense in contrast to Robinson’s transmuted aural pleasures, I’ll just sit back, relax and inhale as much of the drifting melodious elixir as I can.

  1. I could certainly do with a large inhalation of melodious elixir so might give this one a go. It sounds like it could be the perfect antidote to the strains of modern life...
