Patto - Government Man

Taken from their first LP, which was produced by Steve Winwood's older brother, Muff. Pay special attention to the outro, around 3:48. Makes all that antidisestablishmentarianist belly-aching worth while.

Mind bending techno from our old buddy Doug Lee AKA Lee Douglas, AKA An-I. Apparently this is a fan video, but it's almost too perfect a match.

Here's an interview from 1969 about the inspiration for the iconic song she wrote with her then musical director, one Weldon Irvine, followed by a live recording session done at Morehouse College that June.

Nina Simone - See Line Woman

This isn't necessarily the summery-est of songs, but come on! It's finally June!
