    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Formed in 1965 as The Syndicate in the Minneapolis suburb of Robbinsdale, Minnesota, they changed their name to The Stillroven in early 1966 when rhythm guitarist Dan Kane replaced Mark Moorhead from The Syndicate's earlier line-up.
    The Falcon promo, She's My Woman/(I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone, only had a limited pressing of 50 copies, and like many of their singles is very sought-after. The superb Little Picture Playhouse/Cast Thy Burden Upon The Stone 45 features pure Anglophile pop on the 'A' side with its quaint theatrical metaphors and piano-based arrangement. The track was originally recorded by U.K. outfit Simon Dupree and The Big Sound and together with the flip, where John Howarth's electric sitar playing adds that hallucinogenic flavour, is arguably their creative zenith.
    Following this 45, their manager Peter May moved to Tucson, Arizona, although he still continued his manager / producer role from a distance. More damaging was the departure of talented vocalist Phil Larkin and Dave Berget (although he later rejoined the band). In June 1968, they cut a fourth single, Come In The Morning/Necessary Person. The 'A' side was a Moby Grape cover, but May decided shortly after its release to pull the 'A' side and replace it with a more convincing rendition of The Small Faces' Tell Me Have You Ever Seen Me. By now Dave Berget had rejoined to provide the lead vocal on the song. Only 100 copies of Come In The Morning are thought to have left the factory, making it another highly collectable 45. The flip of both versions of this 45 was a pleasant Mike O'Gara original.

     
    The Cast Thy Burden Upon The Stillroven retrospective features:- And My Baby's Gone, an obscure early Moody Blues track; Have You Got A Penny, a nice pop number; Cheating, a raw Animals' cover; Little Games, a failed 1967 Yardbirds' single and concludes with a slice of improvised psychedelia aptly named Freakout.
    In late 1968, they recorded an entire album for A&M Records which was never released... Sundazed have also promised to unearth that too! ~ (Vernon Joynson / Max Waller)
