Purpose “The Purpose Is the Blues” 1968 US Psych Blues Rock

Purpose “The Purpose Is the Blues” 1968 excellent US Psych Blues Rock
Produced by the legendary Tom Wilson when he launched his Raputin Productions in 1968 that included such bands as Fraternity Of Man,Ill Wind and Bagattelle,this one somehow was lost in the shuffle,an obscure funky rockin’ bluesy combo, with an integrated lineup and instrumentation that includes organ,guitar,bass and drums.The tracks are all originals,with a funky feel to the and some good grooves on the best tracks.The lead singer’s in kind of an Eric Burdon mode,but on the groovers,this comes off as sort of a mod soul/beat group sound,which gives the cuts a great A-Go-Go beat…..
