Smokestack Lightnin’ “Off The Wall” 1969 US Psych Blues Rock






Smokestack Lightnin’ “Off The Wall” 1969 US Psych Blues Rock
full
Fantastic record, excellent raw psych soul blues LP from start to end!! One of the truly unsung groups of the ‘60’s Sunset Strip era, Smokestack Lightnin’ was something of a house band at the Whiskey A-Go-Go (as well as at the Cheetah), recorded several strong singles, worked with Bones Howe, recorded an Lp and made a film appearance. However, they are rarely mentioned along with the Doors, Seeds, Love, or Byrds when the top bands of the Strip are listed!! …. 

Smokestack Lightnin’ consisted of Ric Eiserling – guitar, Kelly Green – bass, Ronnie Darling – percussion, vocals and Art Guy – drums. The album also featured Hal Blaine (percussion-drums), Mike Deasy (guitar), Larry Knechtel (keyboards), Warren Zevon (guitar-keyboards), and The Blossoms (backing vocals).
