Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
A Californian band (commune/family) who recorded their first album in Hollywood. Produced by Bill Holmes, the album is patchy. Its best tracks are the hard-rocking ESP and the dreamy Wake Me Up In The Morning. The album also includes an interesting long version of Saint James Infirmary.
Before Big Brother, Ernie Joseph was known as Ernie Orosco and formed several Santa Barbara outfits including Ernie and The Emperors, Ernie's Funnys and Giant Crab.
Like many of the All American projects recently put out by Akarma, it's not clear to what extent South East Tour and An All American Emperor (shown as by Ernie Joseph) were issued originally, or if they ever existed at the time at all. These may have seen test-pressing-only releases in the sixties, like Indescribably Delicious, but even that possibility remains unconfirmed. Half of the songs featured on South East Tour, are taken from the Comes Forth LP by Giant Crab.
The band may also be responsible for the ESP 45 by the group Rain. ~ (Vernon Joynson/Max Waller/Alec Palao/Clark Faville/Nick Kontogouris)
