ULTIMATE SPINACH - "Where You're At" (MGM LP831 181-1) 1968
The second Ultimate Spinach album had some line-up changes and the sound was more free flowing than their debut with longer songs and jazzy interludes. Trippy sounds are still in abundance though with songs such as "Gilded Lamp Of The Cosmos" "Mind Flowers" and "Fragmentary March Of Green."
All songs were once again written and arranged by Ian Bruce-Douglas with production duties listed as by Alan Lorber. I don't dig uploading songs much more than three minutes in length so my pick goes to "Where You're At" which is a memorable West Coast flavoured interlude with female lead vocals, laid back guitar and harmonies.
