Sit Down, I Think I Love You 45 by The Mojo Men

June 19, 2010

The Mojo Men were one of the first San Francisco psychedelic bands. Sly Stone produced their first recordings made during 1965.

They would have three records reach the American top 100 but only “Sit Down, I Think I Love You” would reach the top forty, topping off at number 37 during February of 1967. The song, written by Stephen Stills for The Buffalo Springfield, had a raw and primitive rock sound. By the time of this release they had added a female drummer/vocalist Jan Ericco-Ashton which made them unique at the time.

They would continue on into the eighties with a number of personal changes but without much commercial success. Still they remained one of the better live bands of the day and left behind this little gem.
