1968, Hollywood, USA: The Churchill Downs recorded 16 great tracks at the studio with famous producer Gary S. Paxton. The band was very young at the time but the musical output was on the highest level you can imagine, with a damn good production. How a band like this did not become famous is a mystery. Fantastic compositions, great multi-vocal singing, strong guitars, organ, drums, bass, effects -- everything you desire in catchy underground music with tons of great ideas in it to make those songs unique. It is also everything you love about the productions of Phil Spector and Andrew Loog Oldham. The Churchill Downs produced one of the best unknown U.S. albums, along with Beauregard Ajax and Public Nuisance. Features Don Adey on guitar and vocals, Gary Dalton Stovall on guitar and vocals, Dirk Acree on bass and vocals, Mick Newton on keyboards and vocals and Al Stigler and Fred Darling on drums. If Shadoks could go back in time, let's say 40+ years, and actually release this album in 1968, they would have been rich. Why this album was never pressed is still a mystery. So -- for the first time ever -- these great songs are finally available on CD.
