Hailing from Vancouver, B.C, The Collectors travelled to Los Angeles to record wih producer David Hassinger, who also produced The Electric Prunes.

The Collectors were pretty obviously a druggy band, yet they still remained very tight musicianship on records such as this, that are ready to fill the floor at your next TOTAL FREAKOUT A-GO-GO party.

One thing that can be said about Warner Brothers/ Reprise records in the late sixties- they weren't afraid to unleash some FREAKY music on the world! These labels weren't afraid to give the likes of The Fugs, The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Kinks (when their commercial days seemed to be well in the past), Mothers Of Invention, and so many more to the world. What an exciting time it must have been in the music business, when the bottom line seemed to be far less important than talent and innovation.

from 1969...
