Exact repro reissue; originally issued on RCA in 1969. This is a true classic curio in the RCD catalog, with a look signifying a shared attitude with early Jefferson Airplane -- is an experimental free-jam LP with real musique concrete zonk... Officially the group was made up of ex-members of Paul Revere & The Raiders -- Drake Levin, Phil Volk & Michael Smith -- who had formed a group called Brotherhood who released two albums for RCA. In between those two releases, the trio teamed up with a few session musicians as Friendsound, releasing Joyride. This record isn't as good as After Bathing at Baxter's -- because, frankly, nothing is. But it's got the same spirit and a lot of the same effects -- swiped a year and a half later. A tribute? Or just an annoyance to JA (who could never realistically follow up Baxter's?? If you want acid rambling about rhubarb pie, this record delivers in spades. Why it exists, or why it has been reissued -- the mystery continues.
