SOUND VENDOR - Mister Sun

 
SOUND VENDOR - 'Mister Sun' / In Paradise' (Liquid Stereo LS-25) 1967

Here's a record that remains elusive to me. It was up for auction on ebay a couple of years ago but I got outbid by a couple of $$$; it went for about $170 in the end.
So this is a copy of the song 'Mister Sun' taken from 'Voyages Into Psychedelia Vol 2. The label scan is taken from popsike.

One day I'll own this amazing psychedelic 45!! Listen out for a minutes worth of freak out action as the song comes to an end. Certainly is Liquid Stereo Diethylamide.

  1. Wooh, some eerie sounds near the end! Gave me the chills. Actually it seems quite similar to the effects used in 'What's the New Mary Jane' on Beatles Anthology 3. Cool stuff.

  2. Didn't Bobby Sherman have a hit records called "Mister Sun" ca. 1969 or so?

  3. I don't know anything about Bobby Sherman.

    Sound Vendor were from Portland, Oregon and formed out of the ashes of Mr Lucky and The Gamblers.

    They used Producer Rick Keefer who also helped create both United Travel Service 45s.

  4. Having listened to file, it is certainly NOT the same song! Just looking at the L/R waveforms for the last minute or so is pretty trippy.

  8. I have just spotted this gem on your wonderful blog. I have always thought that "In Paradise" was the better track, it has a really neat melody, wonderful space whispering (ala Hamilton Streetcar) and the most amazing guitar solo. Not many people agree though.

  9. Saw them many times at the Crystal Ballroom while working in the light show. They were a favorite of Gary Ewing's. When I saw them at the Civic Auditorium opening for Steppenwolf, they literally blew that big name band off the stage.

  10. I was the drummer in the band, and I might have some copies of the record. Nice to hear comments about the music 40+ years later. 4 members are still alive, 3 of them still living in Portland.
