Description
When The Byrds released "Eight Miles High" in 1966 it was quickly banned from the radio. Though the group at first denied the allegations that the track supported recreational drug use, by the 80's things had cooled down and the band could admit, "Of course it was a drug song! We were stoned when we wrote it." If this playlist included all the songs written while high, or the ones that sound best when the listener is stoned, it would probably contain 80% of all the music in the Vault. But this much shorter list are all about our friend Mary Jane, regardless of the state of mind the writer or listener is in. Some of these tracks glorify a particular strain, the buzz, or the smugglers, but they're not all pro-pot anthems. Songs like "Mellow Pot Blues," "Too Rolling Stoned," "I Got Stoned and Missed It" and "Smokin' Reefer and Sniffin' Cocaine" all present the negative side of the stoner lifestyle (as does "Down to Seeds and Stems Again," though in a different way). And, of course, the introduction from the California Marijuana Initiative benefit concert and Peter Tosh's "Legalize It" have specific intentions as well. Anyway, burn one down, get comfortable, and float downstream...this is the dank shit. Oh, and I'd like to give a special shout-out to Tokin' A Large One, a listener whose comments always make me smile. Thanks for that.
