T. Swift & the Electric Bag: Are You Experienced (LP) 1968

T. Swift & the Electric Bag
Are You Experienced
Custom 1115
1968

At its best, this album is a second-rate version of Booker T. and the MGs, acid rock but a bit out of time, still showing the garage and freak-out sounds of the mid ’60s.  In other words, this is great stuff.

If you can make it past the duds, there’s plenty to enjoy.  “Free Form in 6” is a fairly classic acid-rock instrumental, as is the cover of “The Letter” (Box Tops), this wordless version cleverly called “A Jet.”

Another worthwhile exploitative outing from the City of Angles.
