Skip & The Creations "Mobam" 1966

Hi Lizardson,
I found this album in a friend's music-files.
Is it something for your blog?

Fuzz Acid and Flowers (Vernon Joynson / Max Waller):
From Colonial Heights, just outside of Richmond, Virginia. This band's album is a rare and sought-after collectable. The album is garagey frat-rock of the soulful sort - covers include Harlem Shuffle, 99.5 , Double Shot, Turn On Your Lovelight, Respectable, Gimme Some Lovin' and I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry - you get the picture? I'm Calling You Baby is the most uptempo offering here - a jerky and infectious ditty but overall not recommended for garage fans.
Compilation appearances include: I'm Calling You Baby on All Cops In Delerium - Good Roots (LP).

Acid Archives:
Organ-led combo with hip (relatively speaking) Myrtle Beach teen club vibe, band does unusual covers of Hank Williams and "Harlem Shuffle" plus one cool original. Bonus points for excellent organ sound but the muddy recording, weak vocals and abundance of soul covers places this among the less interesting on the label. The selfwritten tune, a semi-ripoff of "Time won't let me" (comp'd on "Good Roots") is worth hearing. "Mobam" supposedly means Makers Of Bad Ass Music, but the sounds on the record belie such an interpretation. [PL]

LP: 1967 (Justice 152)
CD: 1995 (CD Collectables 0602)

Thanks again for all the great music on your blog!

For Tim Buckley fans - his 2 long out of print albums:

Blue Afternoon (fans like this best of his original 9 albums):

Starsailor (Tim considered this his masterpiece, very avant garde and hard to listen to at first but rewards with repeated listening)

Enjoy please. If you like, go buy "Dream Letter: Live in London 1968" - most people say this is the best Tim Buckley release of all.
