Re: Orphan Egg

found this with a little help from a friend
American group «Orphan Egg» was formed in 1967 in San Jose (California). All its members were students Saratoga High School. In the year of the creation of the group managed to win the national contest of young talents «The Vox Battle Of The Bands». Company «The Vox» has been one of the leading radio manufacturers and other equipment, and therefore presented to the winners of some of its new developments, as well as a contract for the recording of one album. Apparently, donated equipment and was used in his record - the sound is really a very high quality. As far as the musical material, something about it, you can say the following: the musicians «Orphan Egg» not play anything new in principle, focusing on the garage and psychedelic rock, incorporating the elements of the British beat and blues rock. Unfortunately, the musicians who will undoubtedly showing promise, went in 1968.
