THE STEVE MILLER BAND – SONG FOR OUR ANCESTORS – 1968
from the album “Sailor”
00individual was late to Steve’s party and only caught up with him on his second album, “Sailor“.
“Dear Mary”, “Living in the U.S.A.” and “Gangster of Love” were stand-outs but it was “Song For Our Ancestors” that kick-started the album off with such class.
Preceding Pink Floyd’s “Atom Heart Mother Suite” by two years, this track is the archetype for that album’s entire production – packed into just under six minutes – minus the bombastic “Silence in the studio!” part.
Complete with eerie fog horns, the swelling sonic build of the organ with the sensation of the tides’ movement at a hauntingly cool ancient harbor gives way to a beautiful spooky Gothic organ-driven, tribal heartbeat, cosmic rockin’ Album Track Gem!
