Folk Rocking Innovation From The Motor City In The Mid 60´s
"Long expected for release and here it is -- one of the best hippie Westcoast releases with deep emotions, unique eastern influenced songwriting/ instrumentation, jingling guitars and mystic vocals -- a real masterpiece (most songs were never released)! The first incarnation of this band consisted of Marycarol and Sid Brown (both later in the Peace, Bread & Land Band), Ted Lucas, Larry Cruse and Richard Keelan (later in the band Perth County Conspiracy). They made a fantastic single on OM Records in 1966 and taught the Paul Butterfield Blues Band how to jam on these ethnic sounds you hear on the album East-West. They recorded for Atlantic Records where Ahmet Ertegun supervised and Tom Dowd engineered the sessions. They were offered a dream contract on the spot but Ted Lucas said that he didn't want to work for a Turk. Shortly afterward they split and the three without Lucas and Keelan added Marshall Rubinoff and Ron Cobb. In 1967 they recorded some tracks that are featured on this album. Side 1 is Spike-Drivers 1 (with the two songs of the first single). Side 2 is Spike-Drivers 2. Contains detailed bio and photos, great artwork by Sid Brown."
