BOB RAINS and ADMIRAL STRANGE - 'Wastin' My Time'/'She Feels Like Sunshine' (Kapp Records K-2098) 1971
Obscure one here by the weirdly named Bob Rains and Admiral Strange, 'Wastin' My Time' starts off like Sonny & Cher's 'The Beat Goes On' but then quickly turns into a great slab of stompin' biker psych rock with the addition of some fuzz guitar. Dig the heavy riff too.
The flip 'She Feels Like Sunshine' is slightlydelic pop and a pleasant sound indeed.
I've not been able to find out much about the group, very little information exists in the guide books I have and even less information has been posted online. So for now, Bob Rains and Admiral Strange will remain a mystery.
Production is credited to Dan Dalton who is perhaps better known for his work with the amazing Peppermint Trolley Company.
