    he Youngbloods – GetTogether:TheEssentialYoungbloods




    The Youngbloods could not be considered a major '60s band, but they were capable of offering some mighty pleasurable folk-rock in the late '60s, and produced a few great tunes along the way. One of the better groups to emerge from the East Coast in the mid-'60s, they would temper their blues and jug band influences with gentle California psychedelia, particularly after they moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. For most listeners, they're identified almost exclusively with their Top Ten hit "Get Together," but they managed several respectable albums as well, all under the leadership of singer/songwriter Jesse Colin Young.

    Young got his start on the folk circuits of Boston and New York, and had already cut a couple of solo albums before forming the Youngbloods. John Sebastian was one of the supporting musicians on Young's second LP, and comparisons between the two -- and between the Youngbloods and the Lovin' Spoonful -- are inevitable. Both groups offered good-timey folk-rock with much stronger jug band influences than West Coast rivals like the Byrds, though the Youngbloods made greater use of electric keyboards than the Spoonful, courtesy of the enigmatically named Lowell "Banana" Levinger. The Youngbloods didn't craft nearly as many brilliant singles as the Lovin' Spoonful, but (unlike the Spoonful) endured well into the hippie/psychedelic era.

    While Young was always the focal point of the band, their first two albums also had songwriting contributions from guitarist Jerry Corbitt. Produced by Felix Pappalardi (who also worked with Cream), these records (The Youngbloods and Earth Music) were engaging and mature, if inconsistent, folk-rock. Corbitt's "Grizzly Bear" was a small hit, as was "Get Together," a Dino Valenti song that had previously been recorded by Jefferson Airplane. The Youngbloods' slow, soulful interpretation of "Get Together" was definitive, but it wouldn't reach the Top Ten until it was re-released in 1969, after the song had been used in a television public service ad.

    By that time, Corbitt had left, and the Youngbloods, reduced to a trio, were living in Marin County, CA. 1969's Elephant Mountain was produced by, of all people, Charlie Daniels. Reflecting the mellowing influence of San Francisco psychedelia, it was their best effort, featuring some of Young's best songs. They released a few more albums in the early '70s (some live), but on these the mellow California rock sound that had served them well on Elephant Mountain had begun to turn limpid and wimpy. The group broke up in 1972, and Jesse Colin Young had a long and moderately successful career as a solo singer/songwriter.

    Here are the answers. If you got all of them crcoert, watch for an email from us on Friday!1. a: Avocados are a great source of monunsaturated and polyunsaturated fat. Replacing saturated fat and trans fat with these healthy fats can lead to lowered blood cholesterol particularly LDL which is the bad cholesterol.2. d: Beef is the #1 source of iron, zinc, vitamin B-12, and vitamin B-6 according to a study published by the American Dietetic Association. Iron is used to transport oxygen throughout the body. Zinc is an essential nutrient that aids in wound healing, immunity, taste, and appetite regulation. Vitamin B-12 aids in the production of red blood cells and may prevent heart disease and stroke.3. d. Believe it or not, tracking your food and beverage intake may actually lead to DOUBLED weight loss! A study done at Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Health Research demonstrated that after 20 weeks, participants who kept a food record lost twice as much weight as those that didn’t (18 pounds compared to only 9). 4. False. This may be helpful but should not be a road block for anyone trying to lose weight. The National Weight Control Registry (NWCR) conducts research on those who are over 18 years of age and have maintained weight loss of at least 30 pounds for over 1 year. The group includes over 10,000 participants. 94% of participants increased their physical activity to lose weight and the most frequently reported activity is WALKING. Just put on your shoes and go!5. D. Cinnamon has been shown to have blood glucose lowering effects and may especially lower fasting blood glucose. Doses range from 1 to 6 grams per day in studies however it’s east to start by sprinkling on your oatmeal, adding to your morning hot tea, spreading on toast, etc. Cinnamon has also been shown to have anti inflammatory effects and may even help lower cholesterol. Spice it up!6. True. It’s important not to skip meals and to eat at regular intervals throughout the day. This helps maintain stable blood glucose levels and prevents getting to hungry and then overeating. The most common meal that people skip is breakfast but out of the 10,000 plus participants in the NWCR 78% of them report eating breakfast every day. Not only can we learn from other’s mistakes but their successes too, don’t skip meals.7. b. There is a direct relationship between obesity and time spent watching television. This isn’t surprising considering TV watching usually involves sitting on a couch and not moving more than your fingers on the remote. An easy step towards a healthier life is to monitor the hours you spend watching TV and start cutting back. If you have certain shows you love to watch, try building them into your workout. A good show on DVR can motivate me to get on the treadmill!
