The 2015/1967 Countdown - 08/22/16 Update

Today, we return to Volume 6 of our 1967 collection, 1967's Super "Sensational" Summer Of Love, and take a listen to The Youngblood's iconic hippie anthem Get Together.

The surprising thing about the New York folk-rockers cover of Get Together is that while it was released on their self-titled debut in 1967 and got some airplay, it didn't become a major hit until 1969, after it was (in classic Pink Moon fashion) used in a public service ad.

The success of the song would go on to sustain the Youngblood's through a couple of critically well-received albums into the early 1970s, particularly 1969's Elephant Mountain, but further commercial success would, for the most part, elude the band.
