048 - Black Narcosis and the Tuesday Blues

First up on this episode of Garage/Soul '66 is a blast of heavy psych. The Sound Expidition hailed from Lincoln, NE and recorded (as far as we know) just this one track -- but it's a good one. "Ultimate Power" proved to be the ultimate track for the band.

The Anglos take the Soul Spotlight with a sizzling lo-fi track, "Since You've Been Gone." Folks, there's more to 60's soul than Motown, as this 1967 track proves.

Black Narcosis is another of our mystery bands - they came into the studio, they recorded, they disappeared without a trace. I have a deep suspicion that their track "Land of Stone" was recorded while the band was, well...

The Tuesday Blues turn in a trippy, laid-back track from 1968. "Together We Stand" was recorded shortly before the lead guitarist joined Black Oak Arkansas (maybe he should have paid more attention to the lyrics).
