The Rolling Stones - 2000 Light Years From Home

This is apparently a clip from the time the song was recorded, the psychedelic year of 1967. Brian Jones plays the mellotron.

10 Hours of Infinite Fractal and Falling Shepard's Tone

Why not? Although the periodic crash sound that repeats kind of messes with it a little.

Krugman on the Most Unequal

Just read it.

Does the invisibility of the very rich matter? Politically, it matters a lot. Pundits sometimes wonder why American voters don’t care more about inequality; part of the answer is that they don’t realize how extreme it is. And defenders of the superrich take advantage of that ignorance. When the Heritage Foundation tells us that the top 10 percent of filers are cruelly burdened, because they pay 68 percent of income taxes, it’s hoping that you won’t notice that word “income” — other taxes, such as the payroll tax, are far less progressive. But it’s also hoping you don’t know that the top 10 percent receive almost half of all income and own 75 percent of the nation’s wealth, which makes their burden seem a lot less disproportionate.

Steve Miller Band - My Dark Hour

A curiosity from 1968. The pre-hyperfame Steve Miller was recording in London when Paul McCartney dropped by. This performance is apparently Miller on guitars and vocals with McCartney playing bass and drums. Miller later recycled the guitar lick for "Fly Like an Eagle."

David Bromberg - Lower Left Hand Corner of the Night

Taken from an LP, so it's a little scratchy and includes a bit of the previous track.
