It’s That Season Again

Back around ’69 I got the album “Renaissance” by Vanilla Fudge. It blew my little mind! I was only 13 and listening to Top 40 schtick and this came along……obviously influenced by my older brother and cousins. But nevertheless it was quite a departure from my regular listening habits. About a year later I bought Donovan’s Greatest Hits and heard his original cut of SotW – WTF I probably said (in full).
This is a song that has been covered more than most – here’s three of them.
