Guerssen Records presents a reissue of 1968's The New Tweedy Bros! Originally from Portland, the New Tweedy Brothers were formed by brothers Fred and Danny Lackaff, plus Dennis Fagaly and Steve Ekman. In 1966, they relocated to San Francisco, where they were part of the exploding, nascent psychedelic ballroom scene, influencing none other than Jerry Garcia, and sharing the stage with bands like The Warlocks (pre-Grateful Dead), Quicksilver, and Big Brother, among others.
Upon returning to Oregon, they self-released their only album in 1968, housed in a striking hexagonal, over-sized silver foil cover, now a holy grail among psychedelic collectors. Innocent vocal harmonies, fuzzy bass, jangly guitars, raga sounds - 100% uncut psychedelia and garage-y, jangly folk-rock from 1968. Recommended for fans of The Byrds, Moby Grape, Jefferson Airplane, The Charlatans and Buffalo Springfield.
"Many punters feel that this LP epitomizes the innocent first wave of 'the West Coast Sound' before it was quickly corrupted." - John T. Berg Master tape sound; Includes insert with rare photos, memorabilia, and an interview with original band member Fred Lackaff; Original hexagonal silver foil artwork adapted to a standard cover.
