RAGA AND THE TALAS - MY GROUP AND ME


RAGA AND THE TALAS - 'My Group And Me'/'For Old Time's Sake' (World Pacific 77847) Sept 1966 

This folk-rock double sider was the work of Jackie deShannon, who wrote and produced both sides. It is believed that Raga and the Talas were a studio based outfit fronted by Jackie's brother Randy Myers.
I've no doubt also that they derived the group's name from the Ravi Shankar album titled 'Raga And Talas.' Ravi was a World Pacific label recording artist.

'My Group And Me' is catchy folk-rock with a driving beat and probably sold well in Los Angeles, the epicentre of 60s jangle. I think the flip 'For Old Times Sake' is just as entertaining.
