032 - Sadie's Ways and the Hippie Queen

This time we have quite a selection of material. We start with Glennis Annette and the Confederates from Texas, circa 1968.

We follow them with one of the finest bands out of Virginia to almost make the big time (in my opinion) -- the Bosom Blues Band. Their acid-tinged tune "Hippie Queen" is pure psych. Hard to believe it's actually a group of teenagers! (and if you're fans of this track, we have it not only that track on the CD Aliens, Psychos, and Wild Things, Vol. 1, but the Bosom Blues Band's entire album reissued on vinyl).

The amazing Elsie Strong steps into the Soul Spotlight, with her song "This is the Last Time." And we round things out with a song that was climbing up the charts, until a radio DJ listened to the lyrics closely and banned it from the air. The Esquires perform their ill-fated track, "Sadie's Ways."

Remember -- you don't need an iPod to listen to a podcast. Just download it straight to your computer from this link!
