Edit for headphones. This an edit of the stereo album version (4.25) to have it sound like the single version (2.55). It took me quite a while to figure out where on earth the engineer had been doing the cutting, but I think I kind of managed to get the mono single version in stereo. Added some tricks of my own to the sound, hope you like ’m.

From their second album "The Second" (wonder where they got that idea from), released in 1968. The group wrote the song based on the bass line their bass player, Rushton Moreve, came up with. The only words he had written for it were, "I like my job, I like my baby." Lead singer John Kay wrote the rest of the lyrics. He got inspired when he put the demo tape in a home stereo system he bought with the royalties from their first album. That’s where he came up with the line, "I like to dream, right between my sound machine."

John Kay: lead vocals, rhythm guitar (1967–1972; 1974–1976; 1980–present)
Michael Wilk: keyboards (1982–present)
Ron Hurst: drums (1984–present)
Danny Johnson: lead guitar, backing vocals (1996–present)
Rushton Moreve: bass guitar (1967–1968; 1978)
Gary Link: bass guitar (1982–1984; 2009–present)

MAGIC CARPET RIDE
(John Kay and Rushton Moreve)

I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine
on a cloud of sound I drift in the night
any place it goes is right
goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here

well, you don’t know what we can find
why don’t you come with me little girl
on a magic carpet ride
you don’t know what we can see
why don’t you tell your dreams to me
fantasy will set you free
close your eyes girl, look inside girl
let the sound take you away

last night I held Aladdin’s lamp
and so I wished that I could stay
before the thing could answer me
someone came and took the lamp away
I looked around, a lousy candle’s all I found

well, you don’t know what we can find
why don’t you come with me little girl
on a magic carpet ride
well, you don’t know what we can see
why don’t you tell your dreams to me
fantasy will set you free
close your eyes girl, look inside girl
let the sound take you away

don’t know what we can find
why don’t you come with me little girl
on a magic carpet ride
you don’t know what we can see
why don’t you tell your dreams to me
fantasy will set you free
close your eyes girl, look inside girl
let the sound take you away
