    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Another of the Boston wave of rock groups, Earth Opera, certainly possessed talent. However, they arrived on the scene a little too late to make a sustained impact.
    The origins of the group lay in the rich Boston folk scene in the early sixties with the first experiences of Rowan and Grisman. A gifted songwriter, singer and, mandolin and guitar player, Peter Rowan began playing in the early '60s bluegrass and string band music with Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys and the Mother Bay State Entertainers. A master of mandolin, David Grisman had similar roots and played with Siegel, Grisman, Rose and Lewinger. Some recordings of these early Rowan and Grisman bands can be found on The String Band Project (Elektra EKS-7292) 1965.
    Earth Opera was formed at the end of 1967 by Rowan and Grisman and their first album was housed in a strange gatefold sleeve with pictures probably taken inside an Indian temple. All the songs were credited to Rowan (Time And Again being cowritten with Grisman) and the use of vibes, harpsichord or mandocello help creating a gloomy atmosphere on songs like Death By Fire or As It Is Before. The following year The Great American Eagle Tragedy pursued a similar direction. Bill Halverson had left but the four remaining members were helped by various guests, including Velvet Underground's John Cale on viola, Jim Kweskin Jug Band's Bill Keith and Jefferson Airplane's friend Jack Bonus. Once again the sleeve was notable, this time with a collage combining a skull with the American Eagle symbol.
    Commercially unsuccessful, Earth Opera broke up in 1969. Grisman and Rowan went to California and joined two bluegrass outfits: Muleskinner with Clarence White of the Byrds and Old And In The Way with Jerry Garcia (Grisman also played on The Grateful Dead'sAmerican Beauty).

    Peter Rowan would later join Seatrain and form the Rowan Brothers with his brothers Chris and Lorin. He also released several solo albums mixing rock, bluegrass and country. In the mid '70s, David Grisman formed the David Grisman Quintet and spearheaded the Dawg Music movement, mixing bluegrass and jazz. Both are still recording.
    John Nagy became a studio musician and also played with Michael Hurley. ~ (Stephane Rebeschini/Vernon Joynson)
