    +1 Great psych on there.

    And before there was GG, there was the psychy SD & the BS.

    The next Mad River album (Paradise grill & bar) from 69 is partly more folky.

    Sure, but it's still pretty good. "They Brought Sadness" was the greatest thing they ever did, IMHO - with that insane guitar playing of Dave Robinson's. And it's got "Love's Not the Way to Treat a Friend", with the Brautigan lyric - and he was a personal friend of Laurence Hammond (MR leader), I believe?

    Greg Dewey, MR drummer, was actually just as great in Country Joe & the Fish; I'm one of those who thinks the C.J. Fish album was their best release after the first two.

    Cant argue with that ! The track Leave me/stay is in my book even higher up there.
    The countrystuff is not for me and probably reflects their breake up soon after.

    It's good, but not reaching the excellence of Pillow or Crown IMHO... never thought of it as a SF thing... at least not compared to Blows Against The Empite or Sinfighter... but it's miles ahead o their other albums - Volunteers included

    Won't stop you frm revisitinfg AB@B... But I tend to agree with you, throughh 'struggle' is not a word I'd use for that album.

It's a highly uncompromising record for December 1967, that's for sure.

    I have a hard time deciding on Pillow, Baxter's or Crown as the best of this "classic" threepiece; they are all so different. The former has the most charm and positive vibes, the middle is their most "progressive" statement while the latter has their most powerful and eerie tracks overall. With Volunteers they are already heading into the 70s (IMO), albeit with some great tunes. And I'm not much of a fan of Bark or Long John Silver.
    Overall, Crown gets my nod over ABAB (the more adventurous of the three) and SP (their more commercial), because every song is a gem, and its political message is still somewhat actual... Volunteers is somehow disappointing (only really like three songs from it >> the rest is too harsh/raw)
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    Repaired. I started out with multiple albums from single bands and had to back fill. D'oh.
