Surrealistic Pillow – Jefferson Airplane

Summer of Love was a social movement that happened in 1967 by a bunch of people known as hippies (coming from the word ‘hip’ meaning fashionable) propagating love as the cure for violence, particularly the one happening in Vietnam. The epicentre of this movement was the American west-coast city of San Francisco, where thousands of these propagators gathered in their colourful clothes and created a sub-culture scene with its music, art and the infamous drugs. Out of this scene was born the mysteriously charming second album by the local band Jefferson Airplane, pioneers of the psychedelic rock sound. It had a mysteriously charming name as well – ‘Surrealistic Pillow’.

Me and Mr. Johnson – Eric Clapton

One sold his soul to the devil, the other was giventhe status of God and the two came together in this album called, “Me and Mr. Johnson”. Robert Johnson has always been a guiding light for Eric Clapton, giving him some of his early hits like Ramblin’ on My Mind with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and the powerhouse ‘Crossroads’ with Cream.

Shankar Jaikishan, Shammi Kapoor’s favourites were supposed to score for this Vijay Anand directed flick but Shammi listens to some compositions of SD Burman’s son, the new kid on the block, and loved them. In comes RD Burman. Rest, as they say, is history.
