The Egg – Woodstock 69
The Egg’s new album – Something to Do is a welcome return for the band after a number of years on the road. Whilst the whole album is a delightful journey through the whole range of dance influenced band possibilities, it’s the imagining of what a dance sensibility would have sounded like in the hippy heyday of 1969, that provides my personal highlight.
Woodstock 69 is the tune in question. I must admit I’ve always been a sucker for some cool filmic samples to get a track going. Once it gets going this is a real groover, with lots of lovely sparkly synths, on top of a deep hypnotic bassline.
