I knew a fellow who was in the Ultimate Spinach for a while, later in the Chamaeleon Church.
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 4:14pm Irwin:

Jeff "Skunk" Baxter was in the final incarnation (3rd album) of the band before joining Steely Spinach.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 4:15pm Parq:

I guess the people selling that Far from the Maddening album hired that British-sounding guy because they didn't think the album would sell so well if they had Jimmy Durante saying "I'm tellin' ya, folks! Dis is a real great rekkid! Why doncah go out and buy dis rekkid right now!"

Ultimate Spinach was one of the great anti-inflammatory bands of the late 1960s. "Roughage Rock," some called it.
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 4:21pm Irwin:

Wonder if Lyle spent time on the road with the 'Spin.

About Jeff Skunk Baxter...Baxter was a member of an independent study group that produced the "Civil Applications Committee Blue Ribbon Study" recommending an increased domestic role for U.S. spy satellites in September 2005. <snip> In April 2005, he joined the NASA Exploration Systems Advisory Committee (ESAC). <snip> Baxter is a Senior Fellow and Member of the Board of Regents at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies.
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 4:23pm TDK60:

Some of this sounds really influenced by Country Joe & the Fish's 1st album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 4:23pm melinda:

Irwin I too was hoping Lyle might have a story.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 4:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Oh yeah - utterly plagiarizes CountryJoe's 'Chapter 24'. But even this is kinda Punk...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 4:25pm coelacanth∅:

i'd like to know the story behind the inside lookin out video on the homepage. i doubt Lyle has a story about that.
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 4:25pm Irwin:

Compound band names inspired by grocery lists have largely gone out of style.
  Wed. 4/12/17 4:29pm jan:

Ultimate Spinach-that name- whattya want, one of the best bands of the day was called
"Cream"...I remember the band, but the music not so much...good to hear it agin. But I warn you, as you wander down memory lane, to steer clear of Grand Funk Railroad!
Avatar Wed. 4/12/17 4:31pm still b/p:

That James Cotton spot announcer sounded like Tony Franciosa's PR hustler character in A Face In The Crowd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 4:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...oops - *'Section 43'...'Chapter 24' is PinkFloyd...CountryJoe quite memorably do it in 'MontereyPop'...
  Wed. 4/12/17 4:34pm Jack:

I vaguely remember most of the '60's...it was pretty groovy!
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 4:35pm Irwin:

RRN63: The "Bosstown Sound" was established (by Lorber) to rival the west coast psych scene. Similarities abound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 4:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I love the Spinach! - but 'Baroque' & 'Section43' are beyond 'similar'...
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 4:37pm Irwin:

Jack: You know what they say -- if you remember the '60s, you weren't there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 4:38pm Mike Sin:

Very timely broadcast of this episode -- Sundazed just rereleased the original, unedited version of the Ultimate Spinach LP "Behold & See"... on vegetable green vinyl!
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 4:40pm TDK60:

Of course, RRN63: 'Section 43'--great piece. Interesting that Wilson & guests pick sections apart. Today, they'd just play the song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 4:42pm Cheri Pi:

We got our hands on a copy of Ultimate Spinach in the late 80's, our punkrock years decidedly were taking a psychadelic turn
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 4:42pm Irwin:

They do the same thing in MF15, explaining the tracking process on a song by the band Orpheus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 4:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Fragmentary March of Green' off 'Behold & See' is a righteous original toon (YT @ your leisure):www.youtube.com...
@TDK60: Wull - w/ the HalfCentury of a certain year & the Pepper Deluxe Edition - it's inevitably time to re-examine the Full Technicolor Flowering of Rawk...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 4:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...also especially love 'Electric Music for Mind & Body' by CountryJoe&theFish - one of the earliest Psych albums. An interesting comparison & contrast to the Elevator's 1st ('66!) - & Floyd's (actually). & the Dead's...
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 4:49pm Passaic River Blues:

Whoa, who did this "Talk About It" song?
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 4:50pm Irwin:

Harumi, but this version isn't on his album. It's a rough mix. Wilson produced the album.

RRN63. Yes, we were discussing CJ&Fish's 1st LP on Chris M's show recently, with coelacanth∅. It is an early psych classic.

This track is also Harumi. It's a great double album, came out in '68.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 4:53pm mrdonutsu:

Man, the horns he put on that Harumi cut really ruined it. This version is so much better than the album one.

...your grass tells me it wants us here, mahhhn...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 4:56pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the irony that the limitations of four tracks inspired everyone to push the boundaries...it went from two tracks to 16 in about seven year (!)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 5:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...being from Bawstin - I always wondered if the Spinach's 'Hip Death Goddess' could be about Nico (as seen w/ the Velvets there)...
