Synopsis

Album Description
Few artist names or album titles have ever been so misleading as this band's. Though there are certainly elements of funk and country in the mix, their beautifully crafted songs and harmonies (to say nothing of some biting electric guitar) are far closer in feel to the West Coast psychedelia of Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Originally released in 1970 on Polydor, the album is a long-lost gem that is sure to please fans of U.S. West Coast rock -- it certainly appealed to Beck, who sampled one of its tracks on his Odelay album.
 

CD Reviews

Great West Coast '69-'70

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great forgotten gem.

Originally released on Polydor 1970, LA band made its name in Boston.

Mines the same territory as Moby Grape and Buffalo Springfield: strong vocals, harmonies with stinging guitar weaving in and out. Mixes up folk, psych, R&B, and country just like the Grape/Springfield.

Also check out Yellow Hand Cd for similar West Coast sound.

"How do companies like Fallout get away with this time after time? This is from a clean, and well-tracked vinyl copy, but still--it's FROM VINYL!! If they had the rights to release this, why couldn't they get access to a master? Get your copy of this classic LP on vinyl--it will be better than this. Great album, though, but Fallout again blows it by using a vinyl copy as a master. Anybody can do that! At least they could say so on the cover. Just my opinion..."
