OCTOBER COUNTRY - 'My Girl Friend Is A Witch'/'Just Don't Know' (Epic 5-10320) April 1968
This Los Angeles group had regional success with their debut 45 'October Country' (also recorded by The Smoke) and had in their corner Michael Lloyd of WCPAEB & The Smoke fame who wrote the majority of their songs, arranged, produced and played on all of their recordings.
Most of October Country's music is lush orchestrated pop, a Michael Lloyd trademark of course, but 'My Girl Friend Is A Witch' is something of a departure and a rather cool psych rocker. Lloyd re-recorded 'Witch' in 1969 for feline cartoon Cattanooga Cats.
