040 - The Land of Extremes and All the Time in the World

This podcast starts with another of our many mystery bands. We don't know who was in the band Don't Tread on Me, but we do know they were deep into the psychedelic scene. Their 1969 recording "The Land of Extremes" makes that very clear, indeed. Far out!

Last episode we featured a song by the Electrical Banana, a group Dean Kohler formed while serving in Vietnam. From that same Southeast Asian recording session, they play a cover of Lou Reed's "There She Goes Again" --  done mere weeks after the Velvet Underground's album release!

Ida Sands steps into the Soul Spotlight with a sizzling track she recorded in New York City. "Prophisize" is a gritty ballad well-suited to Sands' voice.

We finish with a gentle rocker from the Mods, "All the Time in the World."
