A kind of twisted, but totally groovy collection of oddball pop & rock from Rodd Keith, aka Rod Rogers – the king of the song poem – a collection of mostly small combo singles recorded between 1963 & 1974! On top of being the go to guy for folks
to have someone turn their often terrible poetry and lyrics into real life records, Rodd & his groups recorded all kinds of organ steeped, totally catchy tunes with far out hallucinogenic lyrics. The singing ranges from pop combo harmonies to loungey crooning, and the Rodd's work on organ & piano rolls with a little bit of blue eyed funk to more of an austere pop & rock groove – and the songs are just weird enough to still work as glorious pop tunes. Really cool stuff from an ultimately tragic character, who left far too few recordings with his personal brand of strangeness! Includes tunes credited to Rodd Keith, Rodd Keith & The Raindrops, Rod Rogers & The Singing Strings and other combos. 26 tracks including "Lettuce & Lace", "You Only Wnat To Hurt Me", "Saucers In The Sky", "My Living Doll", "Don't Be A Dope
", "Magic In Her Eyes", "Merry Go Down", "Ravens", "Next Time", "Ship For Home" and much more.
