BEDPOST ORACLE - BREAK OF DAWN LP/ Red Lounge Records New Stuff


The first ever compilation of recordings by this heavy garage-psyche band from California, featuring single sides as well as previously unissued material. Founded in 1967, Bedpost Oracle released its first 7-inch, 'The Break Of Dawn' (b/w 'Love Isn't Dead'), in 1969. During these days the band was a quartet featuring lead guitar, bass guitar, drums and keyboards. In the summer of 1970 the band added a female lead vocalist in order to add a dynamic Jefferson Airplane-like vibe to the overall sound. This line-up would become responsible for the better known Bedpost sound. The band continued with playing cover versions of songs which groups such as Cream, Jimi Hendrix Experience and Grand Funk Railroad had popularized. Two more 45s were released including 'Somebody To Love'/'Chest Fever'. The tracks from the 45s are on Side A of this album, while the B-side contains a mind blowing Jimi Hendrix inspired jam from 1972. This impressive release is a must have for all late '60s-early '70s psych fans and collectors.
