THE DESCENDANTS - 'Garden Of Eden'/'Lela' (MTA Records 112) November 1966
The gentle and soothing soft psychedelia of 'Garden Of Eden' by New York group The Descendants has escaped the compilers over the years so I was pleased to put that right on my recent Cavestones series. 'Garden Of Eden' is the type of song I'd imagine Simon & Garfunkel to come up with had they ever started to ease their minds with lysergia.
On the other side 'Lela' is a fabulous burst of Bo Diddley shuffling energy and has cropped up several times on lame sounding compilations. Curiously, this 45 saw a release in England on CBS Records during January 1967.
