61fcdkzeqkl#17 – The Chambers Brothers – “Time Has Come Today” – (1967)

This is one of few songs that can easily be imagined to be blaring out of the side of a helicopter buzzing over Vietnam. Probably because it was used in a movie to that effect. It’s a great example of psychedelic rock. The album version of this song is 11 minutes long, but the radio version is much shorter. Also, The Chambers Brothers were four brothers from L.A. (all African-American) and they had one white guy in the band, the drummer. Which I think makes them the inverse of Hootie & the Blowfish.
