I've already posted some Beefheart & Vanilla Fudge. The Beefheart was from his early, comparatively conventional R&B period

I know almost nothing about Soft Machine

From what little I know of Hawkwind I doubt they're my cup of tea. But some people might think they belong here.

ISB does not really belong in this thread.

This is pretty much the only later Moody Blues track I like:

"Ride My See Saw"

can't believe I've missed this little gem of a thread.

The Cavaliers - In the Deep BLue

The cavaliers - You better move on

The Cavaliers from Mississippi released only one 45 under their own name, "Looking for Love" / "You Better Move On" on the Spot Light label in May 1966. "You Better Move On" is the Arthur Alexander song that the Rolling Stones covered.

This version of "You Better Move On" was picked up for release by Shelby Singleton's SSS International label with a new group name, as the Moving Violations (catchy, right?). The flip side was a different song for this release, "In the Deep Blue Sea", written by vocalist John Burk. Production is by Huey Meaux.

I'll ask my in laws about them. They're from Hays.

That was really good. Nice guitar and harmonies

Ever heard of these guys?

The Gants - "Roadrunner"

They were from the small Delta town of Greenwood MS. Note the power-chording, which Pete Townshend was experimenting with around the same time.

IIRC this track was listed in Dave Marsh's Top 1000 book.

Soft Machine's second album is my favorite of all time. Robert Wyatt is a unique story, Kevin Ayers also started in the SM, but they went from the early psych era, to more of a prog-jazz sound by their 3rd album and beyond.
Hawkwind is one of my Top 5 bands of all time. But, just like Soft Machine, went through a lot of changes over the years, my favorite was the early years through 1975. They were the ultimate 'space rock' band of the early years, but later took on other directions through the years, the mainstay of course, was Dave Brock. There were several other associates bands and offshoots, like Nik Turner, The Hawklords (space punk?) and of course, Lemmy was their bass player for a short time.

Digging around Flower Power from gulfport had a real San Fran psychedelic sound. They actually sound like they had a feel for the sound and pushed the limits for that time.

You make me fly

I can Feel It

Mt Olympus

quote:

sound every bit like a San Francisco outfit but were actually from Gulfport, Mississippi. After a mellow debut 45, their second 45, released as Sandi Craig & The Flower Power features a decent bluesy cover of Bobby Gentry's Mississippi Delta with strong vocals and some searing guitar bursts.

The flip to their third 45, Mt. Olympus, is a smouldering slice of psych that erupts at the end with unrestrained manic feedback. In contrast, their final 45 features a laid back, almost lounge-styled, rendition of Love's Orange Skies.

Sandi later had some success as a country singer, appearing on a Tennessee Ernie Ford TV special filmed in the USSR, of all places. By then, she was performing under a different last name.


Check this tune out. Early punk IMO.
Stop check it


Mississippi Delta

Trivialities

Don't burn my Wings


A little personal tidbit about the band I thought was cool.

The Amboy Dukes - "Journey to the Center of the Mind"


I've got a friend that will argue til the cows come home that "Journey to the Center of the Mind" is the greatest album of all time.

quote:

The recipe for psychedelic music: Add wah-wah guitar, sitar, mellotrons and backward tape loops. Layer lyrics about altered conscience, trippy vocals and whole lotta love. Sprinkle with a kaleidoscope of audio colors and textures. Bake "quite-right-ly" to a Mellow Yellow. Enjoy - (I did)!

Just saw this Flower Power post today. Looked for a photo of the band but couldn't find one. I did find a blog that claimed they recorded some tracks in Texas that still have never been released.

Their remake of Love's "Orange Skies" is actually harder than the original. I can easily see "Trivialities" and "Don't Burn My Wings" being covered by an alt.country band today.

Never heard of the Tune-Kel label, but then I'm far from an expert on the NO music scene.

I may post some LA bands sometime.
