A great song from a great and forgotten album

Many (including myself) would say that Forever Changes, along with the first side of Da Capo, and maybe a song here and there off of Out Here--was their best work. But even after Electra producer, Jack Holzman, fired the band, and Lee regrouped and got a heavier electric guitar sound from Jay Donnelan, Four Sail, is still a great album.  "August," the first song of side one is my favorite. I also loved Singing Cowboy and a couple of others. Call it garage. Call it psychedelic. Call it electic. I call it great art.

Four pieces up at Winamop

A not so new zine. Some very familiar names. My thanks to Lisa Cihlar for supplying prompts that sparked these pieces. Check out their art gallery, which I thought was really cool. <a href = "http://www.winamop.com/kh1101.htm">Kyle Hemmings</a>
