051 - Village of Love and Spontaneous Corruption

Another of our infamous mystery bands start off this podcast. Who were Les Soules? We're not sure. They recorded a song in Jonesboro, Arkansas, but other than that...

With a name like Spontaneous Corruption, you can bet the band's going to lay down some heavy sound. And they do. The Looking Glass of Time has all the cosmic psychedelica you could desire (maybe even more so).

The Soul Spotlight shines on Roy Hines. Hines had been in the business for over a decade when he cut this fine example of early 70's soul. When he hits the chorus with the brass behind him, everything's right with the world.

We finish with a test track. Jamie Holmes and some friends were asked to try out a newly-built studio at the local radio station, KBOA. They did, and promptly forgot about the track. Forty years later it was unearthed by Psych of the South and another fine example of raw garage was made available for us to enjoy.

Remember, you don't need an iPod (or even an iPhone) to enjoy this podcast. Just click on the link below and start listening.
