"Today Hoyt Axton is perhaps best known as the writer of such great songs as 'Greenback Dollar' (The Kingston Trio), 'The Pusher' (Steppenwolf) and 'Joy To The World' (Three Dog Night). Among the best of his records would be My Griffin Is Gone, his 1969 psych-folk opus. Running the gamut from pastoral musings like 'Way Before The Time Of Towns' to harrowing anti-war ruminations ('Beelzebub's Laughter') and moving meditations on drug abuse ('Snowblind Friend') the album was written and recorded during a time of personal hardship and LSD experimentation. This newly expanded edition features four mind-blowing tracks only available on 45 before and eight previously-unreleased tracks! Remastered in 2008 from the original Columbia master tapes with exclusive notes and rare photos."
