A healthy slab of US gear amongst the 16 tracks this
week.Including Bump and the wonderfully named Balloon Farm.
Listen out for the Nick Nicely track 'Hilly Fields 1892' which
most definitely inspired Mr Partridge and Co to don their
paisley's and record under their Dukes Of Stratosphear
Featured artist this week are The Chocolate Watchband.
Hailing from San Jose, they recorded some sublime
garage punk, rightly hailed as 'classics' these days.
Check 'em out doing their thing in the Pandora's Box
gig scene from the film Riot On Sunset Strip in '67.
Of the three tracks I've chosen, it's the best line-up
that are represented. In other words they played on
the tracks unlike large portions of their albums, where
session musicians were employed by producer Ed Cobb.
'No Way Out', 'Are You Gonna Be There (At The Love In)'
and 'Don't Need You Lovin' were recorded in 1967.
Also on this weeks show are The Monkees with the
awesome 'Star Collector' lifted from their 'Pisces, Aquarius,
Capricorn & Jones Ltd' LP, again from 1967.
I have distinct memories of seeing them perform this
