Dr. Music - Sun Goes By (1972)

Dr Music - Sun Goes By - YouTube


Sun Goes By, cannon's fly up against the sky.
Moon up high, banners ride Cancer 'cross Eli.

Hear a cry - scenes of life reflected in the eye.
Orion ride - picture me a pencil-image lie.

When will evenin' (Blessed evenin'),
Come into our lives?

Can't you see it - and believe it ?
We won't buy the lies.

Time will mean, only as it seems,
To be driftin' between, the shape and the means.
Will you watch and obey, heedless and you pay,
Be aware of the sign..... and will you be there ?

Mindless eyes, chariots of death will be disguised.
High winds glide, troopers hear not the babies sighs.

They just stare, ignorance attempting to compare.
Can't they try, looking at the writing in the sky ?

Don't deceive us, just believe us,
Time will only know.

Not bad meanings, not sad feelings,
Just the world we show.

Blood is red, must it all be shed,
In the light of the years,
The knowledge of our fears,
Can you hide in the line,
Reason soak your mind,
Be aware of the sign,
And will you be there ?

Hear ye, hear ye, all aboard the early 1970s time machine ! It can hold 1000's of willing passengers, transporting all those who are willing, back in time to when jazz-pop extravaganzas were common and the required arrangement skills were very demanding. This song is very interesting in how the vocal melody often becomes immersed within the immense jazz harmonies, to the point of it almost being convoluted (in a good way, of course).

No need to worry about being stuck in 1972 Toronto, Canada though (imagine, no internet or smart phones - eeek). When the song ends you'll be instantaneously transported back to 2014 (that is, providing I have calibrated the control panel settings properly, heh).

Thanks eldon2975 for bringing back this little gem of a song for our enjoyment. Sorry to say that I did not get to hear them the first time around.
Rock Jazz, allright!!

Brings back memories of when music was based on real players and not software samples. When a horn section had humans, spit and all. Out of the box energy can't be faked, no sir.
It reminds me of the theme of Shaft. Funky!!
And the lyrics are out of this world!!

Don't be shy to lead us to more treasures in your future posts.

YES.

It's still 1972 somewhere.

Thanks HW.

It really is a jazz-pop-rock gem, isn't it ? More and more layers are revealed each time you listen to it.

Nice find. Sounds (a lot!) like a cross between the Free Design and early Chicago!

Yes, also add some (Toronto-based) "Lighthouse" and "The Fifth Dimension" as well.

Though I think early 1970's Chicago can't be beat at jazz-pop-rock, this is also some good stuff.

Lighthouse - One Fine Morning - YouTube


Blood, Sweat & Tears - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Spinning Wheel - High Quality Version - YouTube


Hmmm, I never really explored this group enough :

Free Design probably belong in the 'easy listening' section.. they've made a lot of lovely cheese.




There's at least one new band doing stuff along the lines of this thread:
