The Saha Playlists, Vol. 1: Robert & Rahul’s Top 25 Classic Rock Countdown

#4 The Rolling Stones – “Loving Cup” (Exile on Main St.)

Our favourite moment from the stones finest hour. “What a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz…”

#5 The Beatles – “Tomorrow Never Knows” (Revolver)

Lennon as the hilltop prophet. Consider our minds turned off.

#6 Elvis Presley – “That’s All Right” (Single)

There’s a reason this man was called, “the King.” Here he is in his original incarnation, fresh faced and fit.

#7 Jimi Hendrix – “Are You Experienced?” (Are You Experienced)

Jimi Hendrix is from the future. This is the only way to explain this track being released in 1967. We will accept no other explanations.

#8  The Rolling Stones – “Gimmie Shelter” (Let it Bleed)

The Stones are great, but it’s Merry Clayton’s vocal on this track that sends shivers up our spines.

#9: Led Zeppelin – “Gallows Pole” (Album: III)

The irresistible galloping vibe of this tune always has us hitting repeat.


#10: Patto – “The Man” (Album: Patto)

Incredible performance from these criminally underrated seventies rockers. Check it out.


#11: Cream – “Blue Condition” (Album: Disraeli Gears)

Maybe an unexpected choice from the Cream pantheon, but it makes sure we don’t take the wrong direction when passing fru.


#12: The Band – “Chest Fever” (Album: Music From Big Pink)

Don’t think anyone can tell what the lyrics are supposed to mean, but Garth Hudson’s organ hook is irresistible.


#13: Bob Dylan – “Masters Of War” (Album: The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan)

Perhaps Dylan’s most stark and angry lyrics. Maybe that’s why we like it so much.


#14: Neil Young – “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” (Album: Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere”)

Hey Neil, come back home where it’s cool and breezy.  We miss you.


#15: The Beatles – “Love You To” (Album: Revolver)

A little slice of genius from “the quiet one.” We’re glad he made himself heard here.


#16The Rolling Stones – “Rocks Off” (Album: Exile On Main Street)

It’s tracks like this that make me glad no one ever introduced Mick and Keith to some healthier hobbies. At least when they we’re bored by the sunshine, they went into the studio and created masterpieces like this.


#17: Simon & Garfunkel – “The Sound Of Silence” (Album: Sounds Of Silence)

You may call it folk, but “the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls,” is pure rebellious rock and roll.


#18: The Jimi Hendrix Experience –  “Bold As Love (Album: Axis: Bold As Love)

The guitar outro is a rolling, swirling masterpiece. We’re in awe of Jimi.


#19: Link Wray & His Ray Men – Rumble” (Album:  SINGLE)

This song was originally banned because it was believed to be promoting juvenile delinquency. That was probably true. Turn it up to eleven.


#20: Pink Floyd – “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” (Album: Animals)

Despite the fact that all of the remaining members of Pink Floyd could be considered “well-heeled big wheels,” Roger Waters’ attack on greed still rings true.


#21The Who – “Love Reign O’er Me” (Album: Quadrophenia)

Epic track from the oft o’erlooked ‘Quadrophenia’ soundtrack. Best listened to whilst on a scooter or the 5:15 train.


#22: The Kinks: “A Well Respected Man” (Album: Kwyet Kinks)

Ray Davies’ sardonic take on English middle class aspirations remains devastating.


#23: The Beach Boys – “God Only Knows” (Album: Pet Sounds)

Paul McCartney once called this his favourite song.  Who are we to argue with the Walrus?


#24: Joni Mitchell – “This Flight Tonight” (Album: Blue)

Some Joni Mitchell songs are almost painfully beautiful and this is one of them. We hope you’ve got your heat turned on, baby!


#25: Led Zeppelin – “How Many More Times” (Album: I)

Zeppelin re-invents Howling Wolf’s classic “How Many More Years” and set the blueprint for 70’s hard rock.

Look what people are saying about Saha!

30thApril • 2012

This comes from the folks at Black Angus Fine Meats and Game in reference to Saha’s Thai curry products:

“…We found the flavour authentic and fresh and it would definitely blend well with any protein.  It was also very easy to prepare, we followed the instructions on the label adding the coconut milk etc.  We will easily get two meals from one jar which is nice too.  We enjoy ethnic cuisine but it’s difficult to achieve the same flavours at home and it’s just not the same buying something from a package.  With the SAHA sauce you really feel like you’re getting something fresh and authentic.  We would definitely buy the product and try other flavours…”

Our thanks to the folks at Black Angus for their kind words about our products. Believe us, the feeling is mutual!
