The world of 1960's garage music is full of strange stories. The Morning Disaster was an up-and-coming band that was soon hustled into the studio to record some of their original material.
They did so (and it's decidedly better than average), but the tapes were never released and the band broke up soon afterwards. From those lost sessions, we present a fine example of psychedelica, "Black Leather Books."
Alvin Delk and Rockin' Cavaliers give lie to their song "Ain't Nothing Shakin'"" -- in this barnburner from 1968 everything's shaking!
We finish with a down-tempo instrumental track from the Purple Canteen. Feel free to add your own melody...
