Fox - San Francisco Session (1969-70 us, stunning heavy blues psych rock)

An unreleased album from this post "Day Blindness" band, recorded in 1969/70. This album is a heavy bluesy psychedelic masterpiece of the highest order. It is virtually the second "Day Blindness" album with slight personal changes, but musically in a more heavy psychedelic direction. 

The lead guitarist Gary Pihl is well known today for being the guitar player of Boston. Here he plays an amazing psychedelic guitar and it reminds us in parts of the mighty Mariani's "Perpetuum Mobile" album. Superb bass guitar by Johnny V. Vernazza and crazy drums by Roy Garcia, who later went to play with the legendary band Gold (of Rockadelic Records fame!). 

Only one 45 single was ever released of those fantastic sessions on "Studio 10", and the single is mega rare these days.
