Garage/Soul 66 Podcast #007 - Velvet Haze and Raw Soul
This podcast we start in Washington D.C. with the fuzzed out acid sounds of the Velvet Haze. Then we check out bassist Gene Barnett. He spent a good part of his career playing behind others. But he stepped into the limelight when he fronted his own group back in 1967.
We conclude with a double shot of soul. Lenis Guess sings a smooth ballad of love and devotion, while Raw Soul serves up an instrumental as lo-fi and nasty as the group's name.
