Here's a groovy underground Psych single out of the real Southern California of the late 1960s. A jagged guitar leads the way for the "Mushroom People" while "Let Me Touch You" is a catchy dreamy Psych song that reminds Team Vinyl Vaults of the Paisley Underground sound that sprung up two decades later.

08/19/2014 O.K., here's a little more background information behind this brilliant slice of Los Angeles-based psychedelia: If you look a little closer at the writing credit, you'll see two names familiar to any fans of "The Preachers": (Richard) Fortunato and (Steven) Lagana. Add George Caldwell, Robert Zinner, and Patrick Burke and you get "The W.C. Fields Memorial Electric String Band", shortened to "ESB" (i.e., "Electric String Band") for this release. Utilizing the same "group name" theme, Fortunato, Burke and Lagana would release a fine LP in 1969 as "Fields" (using "W.C."'s last name *only* this time). For those who delve even deeper into minutiae, Patrick Burke would later turn up as "Sunflower" in "Ya Ho Wa 13" -- and you can see him recounting his experiences as a member of Father Yod's communal living experiment in the 2013 movie release, "The Source Family". Basically, all I'm saying is "what are you waiting for? Download this now!"
