Everyone In The Place Was High In Space, 'Cuz They Each Had A Different Scene

Mike Bloomfield and Barry Goldberg were a couple of nice Jewish boys from Chicago. This was their band before they formed The Electric Flag. Mike plays guitar, or rather played guitar when he was alive (after a long struggle with substance abuse, he lost the battle in 1981, a few years short of 40), and Barry plays keyboards. The A side to this has appeared on a few of those neat rare 60's comps that people who attend Cavestomp are into. It sounds like they took this little Lieber & Stoller rock tune and ran it through the dirty white boy blues machine. The B side is a pulsing, galloping garage banger with the instrumentation of a psych song, and is my favorite of the two. I can't get enough of lyrics like these, about some strange party where you are led into strange rooms by strange people into some psycho-psilocybinic orgy. Going out in the 60's must have been like Alice In Wonderland, man.
