Savage Resurrection

The Savage Resurrection - The Savage Resurrection 1968Another forgotten psych gem, touching on the San Francisco scene again (ala Mighty Baby the other day).....Savage Resurrection was formed by guitarist Randy Hammon (who was 16 years old at the time of this album's release, more youthful even than his contemporary, Iron Butterfly's Eric Brann), singer Bill Harper, guitarist John Palmer, bassist Steve Lage and drummer Jeff Meyer.

Overall this is no "classic", but an enjoyable enough chunk of late 60's acid stuff that it merits remembering....typical of the time/place, features a little psycho-guitar, some eastern-influenced stuff, and of course the requisite then-hip-now-hilarious lyrics and song titles ("Thing In E", "Fox Is Sick", both of which, by the way, are pretty fair tracks).

Every now and again, one of these psych albums pops into my mind, I wonder who remembers this Dad used to play this one, thought I had a vinyl rip but can't find it, so you'll have to settle for a digital version of this one.....pretty good album, if you're a fan of the psych of this era.
