Jim Morrison & his dog Sage.... In my humble opinion the greatest band of all time.... Just got into town about an hour ago.... (A true legend, hearing Morrison & Co at 15 was one of the best experiences of my life, after hearing "Riders on the Storm" I was a convert, for life - A.R.)
The Mamas and the Papas were an American folk rock vocal group that recorded and performed from 1965 to 1968, reuniting briefly in 1971. The group comprised John Phillips (1935–2001), Canadian Denny Doherty (1940–2007), Cass Elliot (1941–1974), and Michelle Phillips née Gilliam (b. 1944). Their sound was based on four-voice two-part vocal harmonies arranged by songwriter and leader, John Phillips, an innovator who adapted folk to the new "beat" style of the early sixties.
▶ Iron Butterfly (Mike Pinera, vocals) "Shady Lady" [From LP 'Metamorphosis' 1970] Iron Butterfly was an American psychedelic rock band best known for the 1968 hit "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida", providing a dramatic sound that led the way towards the development of hard rock music. Formed in San Diego, California among band members that used to be "arch enemies", their heyday was the late 1960s, but the band has been reincarnated with various members, with no new recordings since 1975. ~j
