THE GRAINS OF SAND - "Passing Through The Night" / "The Castaway Of Capt. Haze" (AMM 008) 1967
Following on from yesterday's Grand Prees update here's their second and final disc. For this outing on American Music Makers they changed their name to The Grains Of Sand and explored an introspective psychedelic sound. Both sides are worthy and have been compiled in the past. The best place is on Burghers #1.
"The Castaway Of Capt. Haze" is a slow burner, quite mellow and laid back, a teen psych tripper that ends in a haze of stunning farfisa organ. I can't help but think about "Scarecrow" by Pink Floyd when I hear this, it's very early Floyd.... magical.
