THE OTHER HALF - Other Half + 5 Non LP Tracks Taken from EVA LP (USA-1968) @320



FUZZ ACID & FLOWERS:The above album was a competent effort, composed of original numbers aside from an interesting version of Arthur Lee's Feathered Fish. Holden's fine psychedelic guitar work stands out throughout and is at its best on Morning Fire plus the finale What Can I Do For You?. Another number, Oz Lee Eaves Drops had an interesting beat, whilst the band's best known track, the non-LP Mr. Pharmacist, is a classic psych-punker and well worth checking out.
Carolyn White, who used to live with the band in Mill Valley, California, recalls that they may have recorded a second album entitled The Other Half And How To Get It - Anyone have further info? Carolyn also tells us "Things came to an official end in L.A. when Jeff and Larry and Ron decided to move to Northern California, however I think Randy was the first to want to break up. It happened right after they recorded the theme to 'Mod Squad', a sixties cop show".

Un disco impresionante. Muy recomendado. Tengo mi copia de Radioactive, por lo que no se puede hablar de tener el original, aunque EVA no le iba a la zaga!!! Se agradecen los bonus que supongo serán del ep francés de Vogue.

Un discazo con mayúsculas DISCAZO.
