Στις πηγές της ψυχεδελικής σόουλ, με τους Chambers Brothers. Το συγκρότημα που, μαζί με τον Dylan υπήρξε υπεύθυνο, στο Φεστιβάλ του Newport [1965] για το πέρασμα της αμερικανικής λαϊκής μουσικής στην ηλεκτρική της φάση.
Από το άλμπουμ The Time Has Come του 1967, ακούμε Το “Time Has Come Today” σε δυο βερσιόν: ως ψυχεδελικό έπος και ως hit single , διάρκειας 11 και 5 λεπτών αντίστοιχα.

Αt the source of psychedelic soul, with The Chambers Brothers. The band responsible, along with Dylan, for the transition of American music to its electric phase, at Newport Festival [1965].
From their 1967 album The Time Has Come, we hear “Time Has Come Today” in two versions: as a psychedelic epic and as a hit single, lasting 11 and 5 minutes respectively.

❝ Time has come today
Young hearts can go their way
Can’t put it off another day
I don’t care what others say
They say we don’t listen anyway
Time has come today
(Hey)
Oh
The rules have changed today (Hey)
I have no place to stay (Hey)
I’m thinking about the subway (Hey)
My love has flown away (Hey)
My tears have come and gone (Hey)
Oh my Lord, I have to roam (Hey)
I have no home (Hey)
I have no home (Hey)
Now the time has come (Time)
There’s no place to run (Time)
I might get burned up by the sun (Time)
But I had my fun (Time)
I’ve been loved and put aside (Time)
I’ve been crushed by the tumbling tide (Time)
And my soul has been psychedelicized (Time)
Now the time has come (Time)
There are things to realize (Time)
Time has come today (Time)
Time has come today (Time)
Time [x11]
Oh
Now the time has come (Time)
There’s no place to run (Time)
I might get burned up by the sun (Time)
But I had my fun (Time)
I’ve been loved and put aside (Time)
I’ve been crushed by tumbling tide (Time)
And my soul has been psychedelicized (Time)
Now the time has come (Time)
There are things to realize (Time)
Time has come today (Time)
Time has come today (Time)
Time [x4]
Yeah


Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
