Six Degrees of Separation:

1: Tired Of Waiting For You [The Kinks Cover] – The Flock, The Flock (1969)

  • Jerry Goodman played the prominent violin part with the Chicago jazz-rock group The Flock until he was recruited to join John McLaughlin’s jazz fusion ensemble Mahavishnu Orchestra. He stayed with them for their first two studio albums/three years.

2: Awakening – The Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Inner Mounting Flame (1971)

  • Both albums were released on Columbia Records in 1971, which displays the significant range of recordings the record company was releasing at the time. The Inner Mounting Flame was a hit and considered very influential in the development of its genre, while the Cale-Riley collaboration wasn’t put out until a year after it was recorded. It received lukewarm critical reception.

3: The Soul Of Patrick Lee (feat. Adam Miller) – John Cale & Terry Riley, Church Of Anthrax (1971)

  • “Ship Of Fools” was of a song penned by each the Grateful Dead (from the 1974 album Grateful Dead from the Mars Hotel) and John Cale (from the 1974 album Fear). These songs are completely different and independent and came out by these two artists the same year.

4: Workingman’s Dead Promo / New Speedway Boogie – Grateful Dead, Workingman’s Dead (1970)

  • “New Speedway Boogie” was written about the Altamont Festival in 1969.  The Flying Burrito Bros. appeared at that concert.  Sneaky Pete Kleinow, that band’s pedal steel player is featured on Joni Mitchell’s “California.”

5: California – Joni Mitchell, Blue (1971)

  • Also featured on the track “California” is the drummer Russ Kunkel, an L.A. session man who appeared on many of the classic LPs of the era including Jackson Browne’s Hold Out.

6: Call It A Loan – Jackson Browne , Hold Out (1980)
