A totally excellent album by The Turtles! We always loved this group in their normal mode, but this is a super-cool record that's set up as a "Battle Of The Bands" – one that has the group pretending to be a different ensemble from track to track on the record, either Natures Children, Fats Mallard & The Bluegrass Fireball, The Bigg Brothers, The LA Bust '66, and many other fake combos. The big cut on here is the incredible "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea", played by the Royal Macademia Nuts, and with an incredible funky breakbeat all the way through! Another nice one is the funky cut "Buzzsaw", which has a fuzzy guitar groove that sounds a lot like "Tramp"! LP, Vinyl record album

Plant & See ... LP WhiteWhale/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1969. Used Gatefold (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
The rare late 60s album by Plant And See! The record is a great mix of psych and soul released on WhiteWhale – the adventurous label home of fellow funk rock/country soul genre buster Jim Ford – and another essential gem! Led by Native American guitarist and lead vocalist Willie French Lowery, the group is notable for it's multi-racial lineup – which was, sadly, a real anomaly at the time – but the music is their greatest selling point! There's a bit of a funky, kinda swampy rock vibe throughout, plus some straight up blistering tunes with furious drums and blazing guitars, and some sweeter moments, thanks to female backing vocals. Includes "Put Out My Fire', "Flat On My Face", "Mrs. Tree", "Henrietta", "Love & Affection", "Poor Rich Man", "Seekin' Advice", "Witches Brew" and "Leavin" (the lead vocal by backing singer Carol Fitzgerald.
