HAMILTON STREETCAR - "Hamilton Streetcar" (Dot DLP-25939) 1969
A trolley token. Or fifteen cents. A small price. A wondrous journey on a trans-cranial streetcar. Ahhh, the scenery laid before me. All the joy and pain and love and lust and beauty.... and pain.... the depths of the heights.... and the pain....and the love.
Flight on silver wings of trolley track....above it all....and all a part of me.... and you....And all.
The Hamilton Streetcar of your head.
"Pleasant Street" is an album track demonstrating that they had a very strong Doors influence. It could be argued that "Pleasant Street", written by Tim Buckley has become their very own "Love Street" The vocals are quite bombastic, it could almost be Jim Morrison.
