CRYSTAL GARDEN - "Peach Fuzz Forest" / "Flash" (Bay Town BT011s) March 1969

According to "TeenBeat Mayhem!" Crystal Garden hailed from San Leandro, California and despite almost everywhere stating a 1968 release for this disc, in the book we're looking at Spring 1969. The music certainly fits in with an early '69 sound. Top side "Peach Fuzz Forest" is the most well known cut and has quite a crude recording but with plenty to get excited about.

The flip "Flash" is a more laid back, downer affair. Again with a crude production in stereo and lyrics about a girl blowing her mind on acid. Kind of like lo-fi Byrds. I really dig this side but judge for yourselves.
