3030. Forest - Autumn Childhood

From: The Full Circle; Year: 1970; Genre: Progressive Rock/Psychedelic Folk
Whilst looking over what songs I've previously chosen I happened to notice that I haven't picked one from the psychedelic folk band Forest in quite a few years so it seems; I must rectify that. They are a band that I discovered and immediately started liking what I heard; it's a shame that they only lasted a few years and only a couple of albums. Great, beautiful song with haunting lyrics that definitely fits this time of year.

Hear Autumn Childhood on YouTube.

3024. Peter, Paul & Mary - I Dig Rock And Roll Music

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41W85WTVKCL.jpg
From: Album 1700; Year: 1967; Genre: Folk Rock
I had some of Peter, Paul & Mary's music on my mind last night and this morning; as always, I took it as a sign to pick a song from them.
I actually forgot that they originally did this song, which in the lyrics both honours and somewhat lampoons some popular bands and the industry at the time as well as bringing their honesty into question. But for me it's that great bass and acoustic guitar that really brings the track to my attention.
