Earlier this year, dozens of Austin musicians came together for All ATX: All Along The Moontower, a compilation album celebrating psychedelic rock in all its glory. But more importantly, the album’s proceeds benefit HAAM, the Health Alliance For Austin Musicians, as well as the future non-profit All ATX Music Factory. This week, we’re highlighting some more cuts from All ATX to remind you the album would make a great holiday gift (wink wink, nudge nudge).
It’s hard to hear Cream’s “Sunshine Of Your Love” with fresh ears–it’s probably being butchered right now in any given Guitar Center across the country. But what the Clapton wannabes forget is that the song is more about the groove laid down by bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker. Neo-soul standout Max Frost taps into this on his cover. As anyone who’s seen him live can attest, he’s a great guitarist, but his version is more of a psychedelic simmer. Listen to the song below and grab a copy of All ATX exclusively at Waterloo Records.
