Hair

From the creative world of Stan Kenton comes the music of Hair.

Hair. Hair. HAIR. I've seen dozens of "Hair" cover albums in my time, but none of them screamed "buy me" louder than this Stan Kenton release. The beautiful woman, the five pink cigarettes, the HAIR... how could I resist? There are some records that are worth the price just for the cover art and this is definitely one of them.

But Jazz man Stan Kenton and his huge ensamble do a pretty good job with the music anyway. This isn't a hip album by any means but Kenton is no Lawrence Welk either. I like his bouncy hyped-up tempos, his straight-laced singers, and the fact that he chooses a wide variety of Hair songs for his album instead of just the few hits that everyone else covers.

"Aquarius" and "Good Morning Starshine" are here, but Kenton chose a number of more obscure songs, equally good, to round out the album. These are great fun, so eBay yourself a copy and give 'em a listen. And don't trust anyone over 30.

Songs:

Aquarius (MP3) A great jazz version of this awesome tune!
Good Morning Starshine (MP3) I call this one "attack of the killer brass section".
I Got Life Has anyone seen my liver?
Hare Krishna (MP3) Peace. Flowers. Love. Happiness. It's so fine.
