THE COLLECTORS - MAKE IT EASY b/w FAT BIRD
Here's a downright FREAKY record from Vancouver, Canada's THE COLLECTORS. As this was produced by David Hassinger (known for his work with the Electric Prunes), I'm assuming the group travelled to LA to cut this record.
Top side "Make It Easy" is a fantastic, punky, garage mover that would have fit in well on either of the the first two Love LP's (making it a bit anachronistic in 1968 but I'm sure glad they were able to unleash it). The other side, "Fat Bird" (which the radio station that took delivery of my personal copy marked as being the plug side) is like a freaky concoction of the Velvet Underground, old timey barn dance music and west coast psychedelia.
