Nice record from this forgotten New York band, released on Decca in 1968. These guys could have, should have, would have as they had quite a long list of accomplishments. This is one of those LP�s that shouldn�t be neglected, maybe someday a cool reissue label like Sundazed will give this thing a proper reintroduction.
