Song of the Day: Elephant’s Memory – “Mongoose”

Here’s an odd but fun to listen to track from Elephant’s Memory, one that went on to be a top 50 hit in 1970 (h/t Something Else Reviews). Before this song, the band made a name for themselves with a couple tracks on the Midnight Cowboy soundtrack with the very trippy “Old Man Willow” and the harder-rocking “Jungle Gym At The Zoo“. This track came after that work and before they went on to be John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s backing band, later renamed to Plastic Ono Elephant’s Memory Band.
