Keepin it Anonymous?

Unknown Song
Unknown Artist
Unknown Release Date

Sometimes it’s great to know the whole story behind a song or band or whatever. Sometimes it’s nice to have a mystery. But with most mysteries…well you need to have some prior understanding of it’s history to aid in the demystification process. Precedents and such.

The author’s identity, and indeed the title, of this track seem to have been lost in the sands of time, but somehow the recording itself remains. I can imagine this isn’t the first time this has happened but the first time i have come across it at least. There has been a somewhat minor stir on the interwebz with regards to the authorship of the song. It’s appearance that sparked such sudden interest began as part of a mixtape of 60s psych rock compiled by DJ Shadow.

What you have to ask yourself is “does it really matter?”
Your answer should be “Can I listen to the tune first?”
