THE ASCENSIONS - 'All Alone'/'Forget It' (Gemini G-100) March 1967

Out of Philadelphia, PA came The Ascensions. Little has been written about them, indeed, 'Fuzz, Acid And Flowers' didn't even list this combo.

The top side is a soulful ballad with cornball lyrics about a girl. This would have got the boys nowhere fast in Philadelphia I'm sure.

The other side 'All Alone' is where it's at and will surprise many who haven't heard it before especially the persistant fuzz which pounds away. No melody or vocal prowess to write home about, just a kid and a fuzz box, but this scores heavily with the 60s garage fraternity.
