    How is it possible I never knew “Love Buzz” was a cover?? Thank you for enlightening me! Given the guitar tone and that singer, I kept staring to try to figure out if that was the Jefferson Airplane . . . of course not, but I had to think about it. What a juicy video. I look forward to feeling the love of the mix later today . . .
