Reverberation #50

If it's Wednesday, it's time to switch the dial on your virtual radio to Reverberation Radio.  Reverberation #50 is another curated pastiche of tasty underplayed garage and psychedelic cuts.  This week the focus is almost entirely on mid- to late-60's psychedelia.  The major exception to the garage moniker is The Index. The Index - hailing from Grosse Pointe, MI, consisted of drummer Jim Valice and guitarists Gary Francis and John Ford (yes - the Ford family.)  All the tracks were recorded in a ballroom at a Ford Estate.  Their version of "Eight Miles High" is a gem.  "Israeli Blue" is the pick on this list.

1. Lynn Castle with Last Friday’s Fire - Rose Colored Corner
2. The Blue Things - Since You Broke My Heart
3. The Alarm Clocks - Yeah!
4. The Index - Israeli Blue
5. The Rainy Daze - In My Mind Lives a Forest
6. Syndicate of Sound - You
7. Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band - Call On Me (demo)
8. The Left Banke - Dark is the Bark
9. Shagrat - Beautiful Deceiver
10. The American Revolution - Show Me How To Cry
11. The Hollies - So Lonely
12. The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band - Here’s Where You Belong
