    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Sounding similar to The Lovin' Spoonful, The Youngbloods were originally from New York. Indeed Jesse Colin Young (real name Perry Miller) recorded the second of two earlier albums, entitled Youngblood, in a group which actually featured John Sebastian (hrmnca) along with Pete Childs (dobro). It flopped, and he formed a duo with Jerry Corbitt, a folk singer from Georgia who'd got a good reputation on the Boston folk-circuit. Bauer and Levinger were then drafted in for the group's early recordings which their record company, Mercury, subsequently issued as the Two Trips album.
    Billed as Jesse Colin Young And The Youngbloods, their first two albums for RCA were made in New York and produced by Felix Pappalardi but failed to establish the group. They headed West for San Francisco, attracted by the lure of its musical explosion. There they issued Elephant Mountain which was a vast improvement on their earlier material and also had a hit with hippie anthem Get Together in the Summer of 1967. However, during the recording of their album, which peaked at No. 118 in the U.S. Album Charts, Jerry Corbitt left the band. This reduced the band to a threesome, although Mike Kane was added in 1972. Elephant Mountain, produced by Charlie Daniels, contained a wealth of diverse material. The opening track Darkness, Darkness has a beautiful string introduction and a ringing guitar solo. There is a jazzy feel to On The Sir Francis Drake and Trillium with Banana's fresh guitar and piano playing well to the fore and a wealth of country-folk material such as Sunshine, Beautiful, Smug and Ride The Wind, as well as the jug band-like Rain Song.
    After Corbitt's departure they signed a new contract with Warner Bros. who granted them their own 'Raccoon' label and issued Rock Festival and Ride The Wind - two live recordings, the latter also produced by Charlie Daniels. They made No's 80 and 157 respectively in the U.S. Album Charts. The band now reached their zenith. Ride The Wind gives a good indication of the band at its best. Apart from the title track the album contained gorgeous versions of Sunlight, Get Together and Beautiful. Rock Festival is a much rockier album including more up-tempo efforts like Faster All The Time and Peepin' n Hidin' alongside their more typical laid back efforts like It's A Lovely Day, Josephine and Misty Roses. Fiddler A Dram and Interlude find the group sounding very similar to the Kaleidoscope. The album concludes with Ice Bag - an experimental jam which suited the psychedelic influences of the times.

    Meanwhile RCA released a double compilation containing the best of the material the band had recorded for them. This reached No. 144 in the U.S. Album Charts.
    Next they added Michael Kane, who had earlier played alongside Levinger in Trolls, and recorded two further albums of old rock-n-roll classics (Good'n'Dusty and High On A Ridgetop). They met with less commercial success than their predecessors achieving only the 160 and 185 spots respectively in the U.S. Album Charts. Their eventual demise at the end of 1971 marked the passing of one of the West Coast's best loved bands. However, Jesse Colin Young continued to record, releasing a series of excellent solo albums in the mould of Elephant Mountain.
    Jerry Corbitt went on to record two solo albums Corbitt (Polydor) 1970 and Jerry Corbitt (Capitol) 1971 before moving into production work (including a number of Top 10 hits) for artists like Don McLean and Charlie Daniels. He also figured on most of Jesse Colin Young's solo albums. ~ (Vernon Joynson/Stephane Rebeschini/Pierangelo Valenti/Barry Margolis)
