    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Merrilee Rush from Seattle, Washington, is best known for the top 10 U.S. hit Angel Of The Morning. She was also responsible for creating an underground classic, Reach Out.
    An intense gothic re-working of the Holland-Dozier-Holland song made famous by the Four Tops, it's slow, tense and has a pervading atmosphere of fear and evil. The sound is not unlike early Procol Harum, and culminates in an amazing guitar solo in the style of Robin Trower. The arrangement is even more astounding when you consider how out of character it is compared with the country flavoured material she recorded before and after this record. The song reached No. 79 in the U.S. Charts and stayed just outside the top 40 in Australia.
    Merrilee Rush and Neil Rush had earlier been in The Statics and Pete Sack hit the skins in The Trolley. Mike Robbins and Vern Kjellberg also played in The Liberty Party. ~ (Tony Allen / Darryl F. Riffero / Brian Semple)

    Biography by Chris Woodstra
    Hawthorne, CA, native Emitt Rhodes made his first mark in the music world in 1967 as the leader of the Baroque pop band the Merry-Go-Round. The band achieved some marginal success with the Rhodes-penned "Live" and "You're a Very Lovely Woman," recording one album of Magical Mystery Tour-inspired pop. When the band broke up in 1969, Rhodes set up a home studio in his parents' garage and began his solo career, engineering and playing all instruments himself. The strength of his initial demos, now showing a strong Paul McCartney influence, helped him get signed to ABC/Dunhill. His critically acclaimed, self-titled debut managed to break into the Top 40 in 1971, but pressure from his record company forced him to rush-release a follow-up, Mirror, the same year. Mirror was predictably a lesser effort, barely charting. By the time of the third album, 1973's Farewell to Paradise, Rhodes was running into legal problems with ABC, since he was unable to fulfill his contract, which demanded he deliver a new album every six months. Disillusioned, he retired from the performing side of the business, working instead as an engineer and studio operator for Elektra/Asylum. Though he never released an album since Farewell to Paradise, he continued to write and demo new songs.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    Paul Revere formed his first band in Boise, Idaho in 1958 soon after getting kicked out of school. He originally called them The Downbeats but later Paul Revere and The Raiders. Whilst he owned a drive-in restaurant he befriended an 18 year old bakery delivery man Mark Lindsay whom he eventually recruited to his band on vocals. In the Spring of 1959 Paul headed for LA with a taped arrangement of an instrumental called Beatnik Sticks by his band. He was turned down by several companies but eventually got a contract from a guy who owned a pressing plant and put out recordings he liked on his own Gardena label. Later in April 1961 Gardena released an instrumental that made it into the national charts. However, the following year Paul was drafted and the group fell apart.

    When he returned from service Paul decided to change his base to Portland, Oregon. Mark Lindsey joined him there but the other band members couldn't so he set about forming a new line-up (B). Eventually they got a manager Roger Hart who eventually got them signed to Columbia as its first rock act. They soon moved to LA and became regulars on the show 'Where The Action Is', which put them in the public eye. Just prior to their move to California they had also begun wearing the uniforms they became famous for, for the first time. They also hired the services of former Beatles publicity agent Derek Taylor and their albums were benefiting from first class production by the likes of Terry Melcher (the
    Byrds' producer) and Bruce Johnson (of  The Beach Boys). From 1966 when they burst into the national charts with Just Like Me and Kicks (one of the first anti-drug songs) until well into the seventies they enjoyed considerable chart success. In later years they underwent several personnel changes. Although they began in the garage tradition, their exposure following their signing to 'Where The Action Is' killed off their underground appeal pointing them in a pop direction.

    Raiders' members Drake Levin, Mike Smith and Phil Volk all later played in Brotherhood and Friendsound. Pierre Ouelette went on to Don & The Goodtimes and Aesop & The Fables, whilst Charlie Coe had earlier played in Jack Eely & The Courtmen. Lindsay and Alliso also recorded two singles as The Unknowns. ...

    Paul Revere & The Raiders are still going strong as we head into the millenium.

    Pentangle ~ 1968 ~ Sweet Child (live)
    genre: folk
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)
    time: 1:13'04"  size: 375 mb
    misc.: 1988
     
    Tapestry of Delights:
    Forming in 1967, they were something of a folk-rock 'supergroup'. Bert Jansch and John Renbourn were already highly-regarded soloists, Thompson had been a jazz sessionman and Cox had played a similar role in the blues world. Both had played in Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated. Jacqui McShee was a well known figure in traditional folk circles.
    Their debut album was noted for fine acoustic interplay between Renbourn and Jansch and contained an effective blend of originals and traditional folk material. The follow-up Sweet Child was a double set, which again included a very varied blend of material including two songs written by jazz bassist Charles Mingus, Haitian Fight Song and Goodbye Pork Pie Hat. Basket Of Light (from their third album) was used as the title track to 'Take Three Girls', a TV drama. Thereafter, they lost their way and seemed to be marking time on their early seventies albums. When the split came in 1972 Jansch and Renbourn continued with their solo careers. Danny Thompson went on to work with John Martyn, Cox did session work for Charles Aznavour, the French singer, and McShee sang for the John Renbourn Band between 1974-81. The original band reformed in 1982 and recorded three further albums in the eighties but that's another story.

    the Parlour Band ~ 1972 ~ Is A Friend?
    genre: prog related, soft
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers)
    time: 42'07"  size: 248 mb
    misc.: 2006
     
    Tapestry Of Delights:
    Not a showcase for instrumental prowess, The Parlour Band offers well constructed and melodious progressive rock with a friendly, rural, yet professional atmosphere. The singing is without excesses and the compositions are fine, though not outstanding. An exception must be made with the final suite Home which is imaginative and concludes the album in a majestic way. This should definitely be included on any "best of progressive rock" album.
    Pix and the Anders brothers went on to form 'A band called O' who released several mainstream rock albums in the mid to late seventies and were reasonably successful. Those in the period of this book are Oasis (Epic EPC 80596) 1975 and Within Reach (United Artists UAG 29942) 1976. Incidentally Pix is short for Pickford. ~ (Marcel Koopman)
