Very Cellular Song The Incredible String Band
Disclaimer: I Do Not Own The Rights To This Song
Such a cool song!! It's a mini musical suite!
My best friend and I were playing this song at her parent's home in 1968. We had her B?W tv on PBS. We were tripping and happy. ISB were singing " A very Cellular Song while . PBS had a stream of films with microorganisms and small cellular structures within. It was our first encounter with this weird synchronicity that pops up in our lives at the strangest times. And you stop and look at each other and say "Wow what the hell was that? So cool! " Lets keep dancing! It is such a happy memory. She died suddenly at age 32. I never saw her after we were 25 or so. I had moved far away but she is still one of my 3 best friends ever and I hope we have synchronicity together again Gail!
We scattered my husband’s ashes yesterday and sang the May the Longtime Shine Upon You part.
The part when he sings goodnight is so amazing I’m only bought this album because I like the cover but it was a very good decision to do that. I think this is a genre changing album now I’m not even 30 years old.
Super Far Out Man!!!
This clip is so beautiful, speaks to me, it is the spirit of the late sixties and early seventies in a nutshell. This is how I lived, I was 17 or so. also lived in France later. Saw the String Band live at Essex Uni, magical, they just walked on stage and said " This...Moment..." and kicked off the gig with that song. Thank you for posting this.
must be the most beautiful song ever.
I may not LIKE every song from 1965-1969,but I LOVE the era,along with the creativity and musicianship.ISB tried to do something different--as did most of the artists of that time.It's what made the songs so enjoyable.There's no chance of it happening again.
What a spiritual song magical tune
I love this band! Saw them at Carnegie Hall circa 1972ish. Got backstage in a clever underhanded move. Tipped the bouncer at the backstage door and told him, "Keep up the good work!" I suppose I got in on that confidence charade. I met the band. Nice folks! 🌞
First heard this album as a young hippie in 1970. I've been a hopeless follower ever since.
