I Just Don't Know / Train Of Life (Atlantic 2708) 1970

This band, along with Sir Lord Baltimore, Yesterday's Children, et.al., were among the East Coast's premier heavy blasters of the post-psychedelic era. Check out I Just Don't Know and Evolmia from their amazing first album on Atlantic. The second album has longer, less structured cuts with seemingly endless guitar soloing... nevertheless, both are recommended. The first album was produced by Warren Schatz and Stephen Schlaks.

Compilation appearances have included: I Just Don't Know on Psychedelic Frequencies (CD).
