Pushin Too Hard
In the mid seventies, I worked for a spell as a picker for a couple of frenchmen who had a company called Roadrunner Records. They collected rare pyschedelia and I would comb the flea markets looking for stuff to sell them. I would go up to the Capitol Records Swap Meet with the late surf movie producer Chris Bystrom and buy stuff from some very cool people including the late Bob Hite from Canned Heat. Scored great Kaleidoscope posters from Bob.
Somehow I ended up with many boxes of obscure albums that still sit in my garage so that the cats can scratch the album spines. Amongst the Rotary Connection, Ultimate Spinach and Red Crayola, I have probably twenty or thirty Seeds albums, and they have to be one of the worst bands ever to walk this earth. Not to speak ill of the dead but they sucked.
Farrah never really floated my boat either, nothing personal but I hold her responsible for a lot of bad seventies haircuts.
