Item ID: 448873

Another great album from Canada's legendary Paragon label, a set of super bluesy psych demo tapes from 1968. Lead guitarist Mike McKenna had spent time ('67-'68) in the Ugly Ducklings, and had already developed a 'local hero' tag by playing hard electric blues as a member of the legendary Luke & The Apostles. Together Mike and Joe Mendelson made arrestingly earthy music, which soon attracted bassist Denny Gerrard from the legendary Paupers. The material included on this disc, rough and searing demo material, is arguably even more rare and interesting than that on the classic McKenna Mendelson Mainline's 'Stink' album.

Also available: MCKENNA MENDELSON BLUES (CD).
