Release Date:11/11/2016;Notes:MARVIN GARDENS / 1968 - vinyl LP - A phenomonal anthology of rare demos, studio and live recordings from late-60s, second-wave, San Francisco, Electric-Folk, Garage-Psych pioneers Marvin Gardens. All live tracks recorded by Peter Abram (Velvet Underground The Matrix Tapes) at the legendary Matrix Club in San Francisco. - By the end of 1967, the major San Francisco rock bands - Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead and Quicksilver Messenger Service - had all been signed to major labels and a "second wave" of bands were bubbling up in the clubs and ballrooms around the Bay Area. Marvin Gardens was one of those scrappy newcomers in fact all but one of the members grew up in the city. The plume feather in their cap, was lead singer Carol Duke. She was a wisecracking lesbian from Lubbock, Texas, with a deep knowledge of folk music, the vocal power and conviction of Grace Slick and Janis Joplin, and a spine-tingling pop-melodic purity that rivaled Mama Cass and Carole King. Duke was a natural, with a large repertoire of material, including songs by Buffy Saint Marie, Odetta, Bob Dylan, Lead Belly, Hoagy Carmichael and an eclectic and seemingly-endless range of pre-war blues, country and folk numbers. The band jumped right on and into these tunes - often without ever hearing the originals - and intuitively crafted sonically adventurous and emotionally compelling versions that completely stand on their own. - As of 2012, Marvin Gardens was just a hazy memory. The band's former members and followers believed that all the glorious music they played from 1968-1969 had been completely forgotten. And they were right... almost. Thanks to some die-hard fans, archivists and true believers, one of the coolest bands you've never heard of is finally getting it's debut. High Moon Records has created the ultimate document of a group that should have been a bigger deal and still very much deserves to be heard.;Track List:1. Down the Line (Demo);2. Titanic (Demo);3.
