You will find a young Tommy Bolin shredding the guitar on this second album from Zephyr. Kind of shunned by the critics, as if they really matter, but an album I quite enjoy. Strong female vocals, some flute, heavy guitar riffs and a few rather trippy moments. Nothing ground breaking, but nothing to sleep on either.

I'm having a hard time finding much info on this LP. I can tell you it's on MTA from 1967 and one hell of a funk gem. It's got breaks, some real nice organ, funky basslines and horn stabs. From what I gather it's a bit of a rare album. As always recorded from vinyl, but not too much extra noise on this copy. You will really enjoy this album, solid all the way through.

"Conspicuous Only In It's Absence" was recorded live at the Matrix Club in 1966 before The Great Society broke up, but was released after the fact. I believe this is the earliest version of "Somebody to Love", before it blew up in 67 with Grace Slick's new band.....Jefferson Airplane.
