  • 1968

    Most of you weren't born yet when this song came out
    In this this video there is a cover of Time Magazine shown that has four pictures on it:
    Two helicopters in Vietnam, Janis Joplin singing out, Bobby Kennedy (not dead yet ) shaking hands in a crowd and Coretta Scott King in mourning.

    I was 24 at the time. Ganja, LSD, mescaline were all the rage.
    Psychedelia was the order of the day when this came out.

    So smoke yourself up, crank up the music or get on the headphones and listen the this and get a feel for what it was like in those best of times in the States.

    Nice crescendo at the very end.

    Time Has Come Today by the Chambers Brothers (and one white dude).

      SandiF,

      If your husband was raised in Jamaica he probably wouldn't be familiar with this song. , Back then, this 10 minute extended version was only played on the (then) new FM &quot;underground&quot; radio stations while the AM stations played only the abbreviated version which fit their format.

      I never lived in Jamaica but bought land there with Jamaican friends and built a vacation home, which I now rent out to just a few good people for extended stays.
