    Fuzz Acid & Flowes:
    The Rockets are in fact the first version of Crazy Horse, the "classic" backing-group of Neil Young. From California, they managed to get a record deal in 1968 with White Whale, the Turtles label. Produced by Barry Goldberg (who knew Notkoff from the recording of the Electric Flag's The Trip), their only album is a now minor collectable. All the tracks on the first side were composed by Danny Whitten (except a Talbot /Molina song) and the second side was written entirely by the Whitsell brothers.
    A mix of rock and West Coast vibes, the best tracks are probably Hole In My Pocket (later used by Goldberg for one of his solo albums), Pills Blues and Let Me Go. The vocals are not always outstanding but the guitar and electric violin parts are good. The lyrics of Pills Blues are quite explicit about their habits...
    In 1969, Whitten, Talbot and Molina met Neil Young, began playing with him and became Crazy Horse. Everybody Know This Is Nowhere, the first album they recorded with Young contains the superb Running Dry (Requiem for the Rockets) with Notkoff's haunting violin. Crazy Horse, their first "solo"album, with Cooder, Lofgren and Nitzsche, is excellent too. Whitten died of an heroin overdose in 1972 and the following Crazy Horse albums are best avoided. ~ (Stephane Rebeschini/Ed Worcester)
