Country Joe and the Fish was an American psychedelic rock band formed in Berkeley, California, in 1965. The band was among the influential groups in the San Francisco music scene during the mid- to late 1960s. Much of the band's music was written by founding members Country Joe McDonald and Barry "The Fish" Melton, with lyrics pointedly addressing issues of importance to the counterculture, such as anti-war protests, free love, and recreational drug use. Through a combination of psychedelia and electronic music, the band's sound was marked by innovative guitar melodies and distorted organ-driven instrumentals which were significant to the development of acid rock.
I seem to remember being disappointed with this album but not listened for years so need to listen again to see why.I think at the time the title seemed to promised more than the music gave
Definitely worth a respin, Phil, baring in mind that Electric Music for the Mind and Body is Country Joe and the Fish's debut album.
Released in May 1967 on the Vanguard label, it was one of the first psychedelic albums to come out of San Francisco.
Way ahead of it's time, it set the foundations for future West Coast band's sounds.
Phil you are mad. This is a classic album. Clean out your lugholes and give it another listen.😀
