    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    This group focused on Tom Rapp, who had apparently once finished ahead of Bob Dylan in a local New York talent contest. Although the group's original line-up is listed above, after their first two albums it became much more flexible, consisting of whoever Tom Rapp could gather around him in the studio. The group's acid sound seems almost certain to have been drug-inspired and their music was always mystical, innovative and mysterious.
    Their debut album was recorded on the avant-garde ESP label, and characterised by Rapp's gentle vocals and a woodwind musical accompaniment. Morning Song and The Surrealist Waltz were two of the stronger tracks, although a consistently high standard was maintained throughout. The album's lyrics were often inquisitive and philosophical; for example:
    'Where have you been to?
    Where did you go?
    Did you follow the summer out
    When the winter pushed its face
    In the snow?
    Or have you come by again
    To die again?
    Try again another time.'

    (from Another Time)


    Another track, Shall Not Care has a strange Eastern sound. The follow-up Balaklava, was in similar vein, and based around the concept of the charge of the Life Brigade at Balaklava in 1852. It also includes a beautiful version of the Leonard Cohen song Suzanne. All the other compositions are Rapp's, including the final track Ring Thing, which is possibly the strangest of all - taken as it is from the cornerstone verse of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings.
    Rapp abandoned his use of abstract themes for his remaining albums which were more conventional. He also signed for the better known Reprise label. Although possibly less interesting than those first two albums, the remaining four Pearls Before Swine LPs are still well worth hearing.
    The Use Of Ashes album and part of the follow-up, City Of Gold were recorded in Nashville. The remainder and Beautiful Lies You Could Live ln were made in New York. In 1972, Tom Rapp started recording under his own name, although his first solo album was largely comprised of re-recordings of songs from his earlier albums.
    Fans of the band and Tom Rapp will also be interested in a tribute album For The Dead In Space, including Fit And Limo, Bevis Frond, Mourning Cloak and even an exlusive track by Tom Rapp himself. More recently Tom Rapp has performed at Ptolemaic Terrascope's 'Terrastock III' and released a fine solo album, A Journal Of The Plague Year.
    Roger Crissinger was later in One.
