The Misty Wizards - It's Love (1967)

Dick Keelan and Ted Lucas first met at the Retort Club in Detroit, Michigan. Appearing as solo performers on the same bill one night, they became fast friends after finding a common interest in East Indian music. The friends were temporarily split when Ted moved to California for nine months, but when reunited again in Detroit, they formed The Spike Drivers with three other local musicians. After a year and a half of performing in both Detroit and New York, Keelan and Lucas split themselves from the group, thus creating this band.

After Dick and Ted formed this duo, they went out to California where they learned how to play sitar from the great Ravi Shankar. Given their penchant for raga-styled music, it comes as no surprise that this song has a raga element to it. It was released on a single featuring the B-side “Blue Law Sunday” in July 1967.

Lyrics:

When I awoke this morning
Do you know what I found?
Glasses filled with colored sights and sound

And as I looked around me
Nothing new I see
Only in the way it seems to be

There’s something in the morning
Different from the rest
Something that makes this one seem the best

Do you know the feelin’?
(Do you know?)
That rocks you while it’s reelin’?
(Do you know?)
Reelin’, thievin’, even stealin’ from my heart

It’s love
It’s love
(Yes, it’s love)
It’s love
(Yes, it’s love)
It’s love
(Yes, it’s love)
It’s love
(Yes, it’s love)
It’s love
(Yes, it’s love)
It’s love
(Yes, it’s love)
It’s love

It’s love!
It’s love!
It’s love!
Don’t you know it’s love?!

When I awoke this morning
Do you know what I found?
Glasses filled with colored sights and sound
(Colored sights and sound)
Colored sights and sound
(Colored sights and sound)
Colored sights and sound
(Colored sights and sound)
Colored sights and sound
(Colored sights and sound)
Colored sights and sound
(Colored sights and sound)
Colored sights and sound
(Colored sights and sound)
Colored sights and sound
(Colored sights and sound)…
