*OLD: DAVE PIKE SET - MATHAR (1969)*

Samplers and lovers of incredibly vibed out mega-groovy tunes rejoice! Here is your dream. I first heard this song walking through Camden market in 2004. I stopped and asked the guy playing it what it was and how I could get my grubby little paws on it. “Simple” he replied, “You can buy this CD of super rare sitar beats from me for 25 quid.” As a poor college student, I passed. But the song stuck with me. I returned to the market months later, and heard it again. I had to have it. I tried to bargain with him to no avail, “There’s no way I can let these songs go for less than 25 pounds.” So, I gave him the money, which was roughly 30% my net worth at the time. And let me tell you, it was one of the finest investments I ever made. Music is always worth it. Always.
