Psychedelic Sundaze #12

This week's installment of TPF, has a couple of distinct threads running through it. The first is it features three bands that are generally considered as the forerunners of Heavy Metal. Deep Purple (Pictured Above), Blue Cheer, and Steppenwolf were all instrumental in the development of "Heavy Metal" as a viable genre.

A second trio of bands featured here, were part of the so-called "Bosstown Sound": The Beacon Street Union, Eden's Children and Orpheus. Critics have not been to kind to these bands or the idea that the "Bosstown Sound" could ever have been as crucial to Rock & Roll as the San Francisco Sound. While none of these bands put out records on par with Santana (also featured on TPF12) or the Jefferson Airplane, they did put out some interesting records. Definitely worth a listen for anyone interested in the Psychedelia, and certainly as good or better as some of the second tier San Fran acts.

Happy Listening!
