I've been listening to this band a lot lately. I don't know a whole lot about The Eyes but from what I've heard, they really really wanted to be in a band with Brian Jones. It seems half the songs they recorded are Stones covers - or covers of Stones covers. This band's take on Route 66 is a pretty straight forward copy of the version done by Mick and Co. I'm not faulting them for that though. Their über-fuzzed version of Satisfaction is really fun if you're into freakbeat. See for yourself.

Northern Soul tune of the day. This one gets me every time and it is also an appropriate tune for my life right now. My wife and I work opposite shifts at our respective jobs so we don't really see each other until the weekend. It gets really old. So yeah, I wish I had more time to see my baby.
