    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Recording in Chicago, Mason Profitt was formed out of Sounds Unlimited which included at various times Tim Ayres, Art Nash and the Talbot brothers. Their first three albums were produced by Bill Traut, the manager of the Dunwich label/production company. With their long-haired outlaw look and clothes, Mason Proffit was essentially a folk and country rock group with vocal harmonies but some of their songs may interest readers, especially on the first album (also known as "Two Hangmen" becaus of its stunning cover) with Voice Of Change and A Rectangle Picture about a soldier sent to Vietnam:

    Janie is my lady, she walks my mind at night
    I'm lying in this rice field, I know that it ain't right
    Everything has turned around, I think I'll close my eyes
    To shut out those machine gun sounds that muffle all the cries
    Ever since they called me, my life ain't been the same
    An old rectangle picture in an oval picture frame.

    Lead by John and Terry Talbot, Mason Proffit toured intensively and sometimes shared the bill with the Grateful Dead. After two more country rock albums for Warner in 1972 and 1973, Mason Proffit disbanded and The Talbot Brothers turned to Christian music, recording several albums for Myhrr and Sparrow.
    In 1999, Swedish acid rock band Spacious Mind covered Walk On Down The Road on their The Mind Of A Brother CD. ~ (Stephane Rebeschini)

    After Mason Proffit signed to Warner Bros. Records, the label reissued the band's first two albums, Wanted! Mason Proffit and Movin' Toward Happiness, as a double-LP set under the title Come & Gone. "Hear the voice of change," commanded the Talbot brothers at the opening, and the song, "Voice of Change," was both a political statement calling out to President Nixon's "silent majority" and a statement of purpose from the band. Like their peers on the West Coast, the Midwestern Talbots attempted to merge the musical and social concerns of the folk-rock movement with elements of traditional country. But they were a bit more Western-styled than the Flying Burrito Brothers and less of a good-time outfit than Poco. The music took off from folk and country sources into progressive rock, the pedal steel guitar and fiddle augmented here and there by strings, while the brothers' tenor harmonies gave the group a distinctive vocal sound. Mason Proffit wanted to change musical tastes and political beliefs at the same time. They lamented the plight of Native Americans in "Flying Arrow," and while they could pick a mean hoedown on "Old Joe Clark," their version somehow managed to express antiwar sentiments. They recognized the connection between the cowboy myth and the independent spirit of truck drivers, and they mixed it all in with a sort of primitive Christianity. In this, they were very much of their time. Mike Cameron's "Good Friend of Mary's" fit into the Jesus cult that identified the Christian savior as a proto-hippie, preaching peace and love while wandering the country in long hair and sandals, and the Talbots sang it with their warm tenor harmony in complete sincerity. Such music wasn't going to make it far out of the early '70s, but in 1973 it remained appealing. ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide
