East Side Kids - The Tiger And The Lamb 1968

One of those odd rarities that's always had a place within my collection, going all the way back to the beginning of my record collecting days. Though definitely not one of the more memorable albums of the late 60's, as over the years it's been considered 2nd rate psychedelic rock by some. Understandably, as is the case with many late 60's one shot bands, the album does contain what some may refer to as filler. Nevertheless, I've always had a soft spot for it. Though admittedly it required patience and repeated listens back in the day before I was able to say I thoroughly enjoyed this LP. "The Tiger And The Lamb" was produced by Buzz Clifford and Dan Moore, previously members of "Hamilton Streetcar". The musicianship on this album is quite good...most notably for me, David Potter's drumming. Yet at the same time the album seems to be lacking in direction and has a tendency to wander, in particular with some of the cheesy vocal passages. This was quite possibly the band and production staff's intention, as it was 1968 after-all...and far stranger things were issued during that era in an attempt to please the youngsters. The album definitely has a psychedelic/pop vibe, and if you can get past the intermittent directionless and just flow with the music, it's rather enjoyable.
"The Tiger And The Lamb" was released on UNI Records, who were a subsidiary of Universal City Records/MCA. Many other late 60's psychedelic and hard rock American bands saw issue on this label as well, and are today all very sought after by collectors. A few of those bands/artists were; The Hook, The Yellow Payges, Warm Dust, Giant Crab, Alexander's Timeless Bloozband, Mars Bonfire, Fever Tree, and The Smoke, to name a few. discogs
