Papa Bear's Medicine Show

"At the Retinal Circus" (June 21, 1968)














First time on CD (in 2003) for this legendary band that existed from 1967-1969. Their only album was actually a bootleg, made in 1970 in an edition of 105 copies. This is different material entirely from that original album, recorded in 1968 in Vancouver's main psychedelic venue, the Retinal Circus. Good soundboard sound and music in the vein of the Doors, Lovin' Spoonful with a touch of old timely music thrown in.

Bit off topic, but I wanted to say thanks for your amazing blog. I love love love it. Do you perhaps have any Oriental Sunshine? I'm really interested in hearing them.

Lizardson first of all thank you so much I am a long time reader of this blog and you have really turned me on to a lot of things. I have a question for you and for anyone else. Do you know of any sites where I can complete collections of some of these bands? I want to buy records/mp3s whatever but itune's stock of this kind of stuff is pathetic and so is emusic and so is allofmp3. Is there anywhere I might look to find say, the papa bear's medicine show studio album? or other albums by daddy longlegs/chimera etc? Thank you!
