Happy high tea time.
Black Water by the Doobie Brothers was a billboard #1 hit in 1975. I know cause I was around back then, saw them twice at the West Palm Beach Civic Auditorium. The air was so thick with pot smoke you could cut it with a knife. Mom clocked me for smoking weed. Cause she had to drive me there and pick me up, and smelled it on me.
The Doobie Brothers are from San Jose, California, and performed for the Hell’s Angels regularly before breaking out nationally.
This song has roots in the Delta Blues of New Orleans.
Were you here then? But even if you weren’t, what is your favorite song from 1975? Leave a comment below.
