‘Country Rock’ the final One Million Fuzztone Guitars session

Another one unearthed from the Vaults of Rock.

As far as we can figure out, the final recorded session of One Million Fuzztone Guitars. Let us know if you know different. Three country rock tracks with a tinge of psychedelia. Brother Dave Robbins gets the cover shot for obvious reasons. Pull up that chair on the veranda, pour yourself a glass of Jack D and enjoy.

Big Jake

Recorded some time in late 1984?

‘Psychedelic Dog’ the new album from Courtney Bourne!

Psychedelic Dog, recently unearthed like an LSD laced bone, featuring 10 tracks of sun drenched experimentalism. Dark journey, a ‘Rock Section’ reference, haunts my brain to this day, Jim, where are you when we need you?

Landslide by Vortex Patrol

Vortex Patrol Landslide 040

What ended up as the ‘Everything’s Happening’ LP was originally destined to be the next One Million Fuzztone Guitars album, but when it became clear that was not going to happen (because they did not want to come out to play) became Landslide by Vortex Patrol. The band name was suggested for us by Jim Morrison in the ‘Rock Section’ seances.
Later remixed with live drums and released as ‘Everything’s Happening’ by Robert Courtney this early version features two ‘lost tracks’ that did not fit (due to space constraints) on the finished LP (should have been a double).

Hope you like it.

Play it LOUD!

But remember,

We are not responsible for your speakers…..
