THE SMACK - TOP DRAWER HEAVY PSYCH, 1968,KANSAS
Originally recorded in 1968, this is a limited out-of-print numbered repress from the early 90's of the LP by The Smack on Smack TS9104.
Of the many hundreds of teenagers who attended The Midwestern Band And Art Camp of Lawrence,Kansas in the summer of 1968, only four were into then-current rock music. All of the others were into marching bands! These four naturally found each other and played rock music at night and marching band music by day during camp. As the six week long camp drew to a close, camp members got to play nightly onstage to entertain the other campers. When the Smack got up to do their set and started to play, the camp director immediately pulled the plug, saying they were too loud! A day later, after the end of camp, the four members of Smack recorded nine tracks in a studio in one afternoon. These songs were: Purple Haze, Fire, Sunshine Of Your Love, I'm So Glad, Swalbr, Manic Depression, Set Me Free, For What It's Worth, and Foxy Lady. The studio contracted with RCA to have 100-150 LPs pressed, which were then sent to teens at band camp who had signed purchase requests. These handfuls of originals known have sold for four figures plus and are not leaving those collections!
After recording the LP, the four members of The Smack went home to their four respective states and never saw one another again!
Tremendous hard psych that I consider to be the BEST of its' class! This limited repress was of 300 copies. Also includes information insert. These LPs never came sealed.
