"That shit almost caught on," as my old chum Erik Frandsen used to say.
In any case, from 1964, please enjoy Tom Paxton and his often covered folkie standard "The Last Thing on My Mind."
And from 1970, behold in breathless wonder The Move's astounding reimagining.
To my surprise, the original is rather more touching than I recalled, albeit rather square, rhythmically; Paxton was, how you say, one of the whitest folkies ever. Okay, Irish.
The Move's cover, however, is...well, words fail me. The final over-the-top apotheosis of folk-rock? A folkie/metal hybrid that out Zeppelin's early Led Zeppelin? In any case, it's really something, and that backwards wah-wah solo that emerges from the McGuinn-esque twelve-string raga stuff and slices the song down the middle just may be Roy Wood's finest moment as a guitar hero.
