The Electric Flag: Over Lovin’ You, Live 1967

I love discovering older bands that I missed, and The Electric Flag is definitely one of them. The short-lived band fused blues, rock, and soul for a an upbeat sound.

Electric Flag was anchored by bass great Harvey Brooks, who also worked with Bob Dylan, The Doors, and Miles Davis. His active bass line drives the energy alongside a young Buddy Miles, who handles both drum and vocal duties. This clip of “Over Lovin’ You” is taken from their debut performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, and you can feel the excitement.

Be sure to wear headphones for this one.
