    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Originating from a San Francisco surf band called the Tikis, Harper's Bizarre moved to Los Angeles to capitalize on the folk rock boom. Their sound was called "California Sunshine Rock" by Lilian Roxon and it's basically a mix of folk and soft rock with vocal harmonies. Their debut album was produced by Leon Russell and is a classic of its genre. On the next album, they had their biggest hit with a cover of Simon and Garfunkel's 59th St. Bridge Song (Feelin Groovy) and also did some revivals of oldies from Cole Porter and Glen Miller, with the help of Van Dyke Parks.
    For The Secret Life, they were joined by Van Dyke Parks, Ron Elliot, (Beau Brummels) and Randy Newman. Despite its psych sleeve, the album hasn't aged well.
    On 4, their last album produced by Lenny Waronker, their sound had hardened a bit with Ry Cooder on guitar and it contained covers of Witchi Tai To (Jim Pepper), Blackbird (Beatles) and Hard To Handle (Otis Redding) mixed with original material (notably Soft Sounding Music, with Cooder on bottleneck). I Love You Alice B.Toklas was the theme song for a Paul Mazurski movie starring Peter Sellers.
    Ted Templeman went on to become the producer on Captain Beefheart's Clear Spot, as well as for the Doobie Brothers, Little Feat and Van Halen. John Peterson also drummed with the Beau Brummels. ~ (Vernon Joynson/Stephane Rebeschini)
