Patrick Lundborg states in his acclaimed ‘Acid Archives’ tome:
“A circa 1967 demo LP from a mystery band who deliver a dozen well-written, well-arranged & well-performed tunes in the California sunshine style, recalling Birmingham Sunday in particular. Unknown albums in this style aren’t many, & this is likely to blow the mind of any genre fan, as it delivers on all the key areas & has no obvious weaknesses. The band’s opening theme song is great, but perhaps the most remarkable thing is ‘Avalon’, an obvious tribute to Chet Helms’ acid-rock palace, where these easy-breezy LA sounds were hardly the favored music. Housed in a gold-embossed title sleeve with no other clues except a ‘Elliott-Ferguson Inc’ producer credit, this may have been some famous guys sending out a test balloon under an alias; in any event it has to rank as one of the Holy Grails for collectors of ’60s sunshine pop & lyte-psych. Only two copies are known to exist” [PL]
