Sweet Rush


A decent Guinness tax-scam record featuring two different bands, or so I've read. Incidentally, for all of those of you out there requesting re-ups, please make a contribution either by clicking on DONATE or by filling in something from my wish list. Thanks!

Mercy


The quality of mercy is not strained
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath
It is twice blest
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes

Features the hit single "Snow Day."

Elkin Fowler


Elkin "Bubba" Fowler was involved with the Avant-Garde, a psychedelic pop group he formed with Chuck Woolery, who went on to host the dating show "The Love Connection." The Avante-Garde had chart success with the 1968 hit "Naturally Stoned." In 1969, Fowler teamed up with Bob Dylan's producer Bob Johnston for "… And Then Came Bubba," an album of rock, blues, folk and orchestrated pop that, thanks to Johnston’s production, comes off sounding like Dylan on several of the tracks. The Dylan connection was further evident in Fowler's involvement as a back-up musician on subsequent records by Dylan and Leonard Cohen.

Crashing


He was saving his best lines for last
Just like money in the bank
He stood before us in his Sunday best
And said, I have you to thank
We took pictures
Of the people taking pictures
And posted them on the internet
And we believed like we always believed
But mostly we were all wet

Farquarhr


From Allmusic: Farquahr were mainstays on the Boston and New Haven folk scene in the 1960s and '70s; blending humor with music, they cut an album for Verve in 1968 as the Fabulous Farquahr, and shortened the name to Farquahr when they recorded their second (and last) album for Elektra in 1970.

Younger Than Today


When I look back on my 60 years
It all seems like a blur
It all seems like it was here and now it's gone
And when I think about all the stuff I've done
And the stuff I've yet to do
I can't believe that my time ain't that long

Cover boy: Larry Kusnitt, whereabouts unknown
