The Contenders: Page 4

61 Dark Star - The Grateful Dead

Psychedelic tour de force. More people should listen to this off live dead. That's why it's only 49th here.

Just magnificent. No - better than that.

62 The American Metaphysical Circus - United States of America

Not that obscure. It was released on Columbia Records and sold fairly well. Joe Byrd of the " United States of America " released one year later ( 1969 ) another album. This time under his name " Joe Byrd and the field hippies ". The title of the album was called " The American Metaphysical circus " ( also released by Columbia Records ). Dorothy Moskowitz that sang lead in the " United States of America " sang also for the album " Joe Byrd and the field hippies ".

Obscure American band that only released one album. This tune is ultra-psychedelic.

This song came out in 1967. Funny it's 67th place.
