    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    A local Californian release and one of the rarest and probably the most significant American private press hard rock album of the era. Above All was 'discovered' by collectors in the mid-eighties and since then only a half-dozen original copies have turned up.
    Stack were a figurehead group in a busy hard rock scene exploding out of the Los Angeles area in the late sixties. Formed out a surf band called The Vandells (which included Gould) and Wabash Spencer (with Ellis and Sheppard) in 1967, Stack enjoyed a prolific concert itinerary for over two years, playing with such notables as Buffalo Springfield, Fields, Hook, Things To Come, Rockin' Foo, Iron Butterfly, Illinois Speed Press, Three Dog Night, Frank Zappa and Alice Cooper. During 1968, they signed a long-term contract with Mike Curb's Sidewalk Productions and recorded an album in off-hours at local studios.
    Above All is a brutal hard rock album with a distinct British influence in several of the better tracks. Cass and Only Forever are remarkably effective showcases for Ellis' propulsive drumming style, which sounds like a cross between Paul Whaley (of Blue Cheer) and Keith Moon. There are a couple of tracks on the album that sound merely typical by comparison; a lenghty blues, and a cover of Poison Ivy that was rather unfortunately chosen as the opening cut on Side One, but overall it's a killer and highly recommended to hard rock fans.


    For reasons unknown to the band, Above All was never marketed and very few copies of the finished album escaped from Sidewalk. Producer Clancy Grass abandoned musical pursuits proper for film work over the next couple of years, beginning with "The Velvet Vampire". Stack was mystified as to their stalled momentum, but lacked the financial wherewithall to escape their eight year exclusive contract, eventually breaking up and pursuing non-musical careers.
    Drummer Bob Ellis was previously with Wabash Spencer, who issued a 45 and recorded an unreleased demo in 1967. He was also with The Fabs and plays on their rare Cotton Ball 45 from 1966. Bob passed away in January 1999. ~ (Clark Faville)
