about

If you somehow seem to feel familiar with this stuff that’s because it is the melding of two classics; The acknowledgment movement from Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme” (with the slow tempo of Coltrane's "Ohm") introduces
the Bad Baby impression
of The Fugs version
of William Blakes’s poem
“Ah Sunflower”.

lyrics

Ah, Sunflower
Weary of time
Who countest the steps
of the Sun

Seeking after
that sweet golden clime
Where the traveler's
journey is done

Where the youth
Pined away with desire
And the pale virgin
shrouded in snow

Arise from their graves
And they do aspire
Where my Sunflower
wishes to go

But it's true! ... more
