THE COMFORTABLE CHAIR - I'LL SEE YOU


THE COMFORTABLE CHAIR - 'I'll See You'/'Now' (Ode ZS7 112) October 1968

A second Comfortable Chair single quickly followed their debut 'Be Me' but it appears to have remained in obscurity ever since. Both sides were again taken from the long player with the psych rocker 'I'll See You' pushed as the A-Side.

The marching drums intro gives way to ringing guitar and hippie woodwind instrumentation. Several West Coast groups favoured this style along with the combination of male/female vocals. For that reason I'm surprised that the 45 was not a hit record. It appears to have gone unnoticed, even in Los Angeles.

Another huge surprise is the fact that The Comfortable Chair are still largely unknown probably due to the fact that none of their songs have ever appeared on psych compilations over the years.
