Brian Auger & Julie Diriscoll - Open


Recommended Posts

Recorded in the UK 1968, this a classic 60's recording of British talent, IMHO. I highly urge you to listen to the incredible combination of music & voice, especially with my favorite track being the Donovan penned "Season of the Witch." Absolutely " haunting & breathtaking."

HQ Player (#1) & Audrivana (#2) (wow! love the Apple w/music!!) .. these two software make my system "Amazing!", Purist USB- Benchmark DAC2 HGC (love it!), Purist Audio XLR , ATC SCM25A's (To Die For!) & Focal sub6 . Triode Power Cables with Uber Buss (Yes!) Also enjoy Audeze LCD3 w/"fat pipe cardas."

While in the process of replacing my old vinyl for ripping, I came across a 2 CD set "Augers Rhythms" while tring to replace my 2 early '70s 'Brian Auger & Oblivion Express' albums. The anthology had my favorite songs from those albums as well as a lot more from different periods of his career, including a 7:59 version of 'Season of the Witch', which is difficult to distinguish from the one Goldsdad linked to.

 

In my opinion Brian was one of, if not The, first fusion jazz players. Good stuff !

 

I liked the 'Witch' video. Cool set, expressive playing style, etc. Could have done without the filters/irises(?) sliding in front of the camera - shades of later MTV visual nervosia :(

 

And while I generally dig that eras Mod style (!), Julie looked... well... the best way I can describe it is: Walking Dead with makeup ??

The version recorded in May, 1968 by Stephen Stills and Al Kooper on the "Super Session" Album is quite similar. I don't know which version came out first but, given Donovan's roots, my guess would be that it was the Auger/Driscoll version. I could be wrong.
