T. Swift & the Electric Bag
Are You Experienced
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.
