A Very Strange Brew (ABC 672) 1969
CD: Second Harvest 419, 2007

This was the work of an obscure California quintet who may have spent time in Texas too. It's rumoured that a few of them were at some point members of Impala Syndrome. The album contains some interesting guitar work but it's yet to become a real collectable.

Members later formed Yaqui, who released one album, "Yaqui" (Playboy Records ), in 1973, which was dedicated to Don Juan and Carlos Castaneda. Musically it sounded similar to Santana.

Compilation appearances include: "What Do You See In My Mind?" on "Songs Of Faith And Inspiration" (CDR & CD).
