This album features the music of two bands from Minnetonka Minnesota. Side 1 is the Uppa Trio and Side 2 is the Yetti-Men. The Yetti-Men line-up consisted of Lee Hanson (lead guitar), Henry “Skip” Webster (rhythm guitar), Joel Peterson (bass), Brian Mahin (sax, keyboards), and Jim Robinson (drums). No information could be found to identify the musicians in the Uppa Trio. A close look at the photograph on the Uppa Trio shows that the head of the guitar player may have been “photoshopped” into the photo. The album was recorded in the Minnetonka High School auditorium in early 1964. At least six tracks were laid on tape in February and March. These were: High Himalaya, Wine Wine Wine, My Baby Left Me, Blue Surfer, Yep, and Break Time. A total of 500 copies of the album were pressed at the Kay Bank Pressing Plant in Minneapolis. (Source: LakeMinnetonka.com). This record has never been reissued since the original release. Recording times are not noted on either the record labels or the record jacket, so are estimated based on stopwatch timings. Deadwax stamps read as follows:….~


The Yetti-Men featured Tom Rapp. Yes, the Pearls Before Swine Tom Rapp. After this record they put out a record for ESP Disk (the label with liner notes in English and Esperanto), which is the same NY-based label that issued the first PBS records-One Nation Under Ground and Balaclava. …~ 


The Uppa Trio were a vocal harmony folk outfit, while the Yetti Men were more into garage/surf. Surprisingly, it was the Uppa’s that approached the Yetti’s about doing the split LP together. What exactly they were thinking is beyond me, as the two styles don’t exactly segue well. Upon first listen, I had completely written off UT. as just not my kind of music. But after a couple of tries, I find a few tracks are not bad. But it is clearly The YM. that appeal most strongly to my taste. Their sound is rather crude garage, and that’s just how I like it. Though this sounds as if it could have been recorded at least a couple of years earlier, all accounts list this as a 1967 release..tymeshifter …~ 


Yep,Pearls Before Swine’s, Tom Rapp debut was in the Yetti-Men. An lp that holds up to the legend thats grown around it.Rare and really good from the ultra great cover and concept of the lp to what really shows up in the Grooves..this is a deep groove monster lp of reverb drenched surf and cool frat garage, including a cool moody punker “My Baby Left Me” and the surf instro blaster “Break Time”!Only 500 were pressed in 1964 ,this one shows up rarely.The Yetti-Men share the lp with the Uppa Trio a folk trio…..~


Kal split LP Yetti-Men & Uppa Trio. The Yetti-men side is 6 classic garage tracks bridging a Kay-Bank echo chamber-like bridge between the Fendermen & the Trashmen–the missing link between those two bands, if you will! Praised to the high heavens by Norton Records / Kicksters Billy & Miriam and other garage aficionados. Comped on Hipsville Vol 3 (where they grace the cover) and on a split single with the Readymen, but all 6 tracks rule! ….~
