Shag was born from the ashes of garage band The Shags (of "Stop and Listen" fame). In the late '60s, they moved from Milwaukee to California, where they played at all the major venues and ballrooms, supporting famous bands like Jefferson Airplane and The Who. In 1969, the band recorded a demo at Pacific High Recordings in San Francisco, at the same time as the Grateful Dead were recording their classic Working Man's Dead album there. The demo was in fact a fully-finished album of bombastic psychedelia, acid-rock and proto-prog with loud fuzz-wah guitars, long tracks, crazy percussion and killer flute. Here's the first-ever vinyl reissue of these lost recordings. Master tape sound, including an insert with liner notes and photos.
