Frumious Bandersnatch - A Young Man's Song 1968




click here 2 DL3.0 out of 5 stars ok psych December 22, 2000
By Stephen F Mulcahy

overall, this is a rather pedestrian release culled from outtakes and scrap material. rosemary's baby and woodrose syrup are good tracks, but some of this is poorly recorded and other things are just rather dull. i would instead suggest that you track down their awesome 1968 ep. this can be found on the berkeley eps cd, and is a better testament to their powers. all three tracks on that ep are really excellent and remind one to some degree of moby grape and quicksilver messenger service.this isn't a terrible recording but it isnt as good as one would hope for after hearing their ep.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like this band! October 1, 2003

I agree with others that the ep they put out was better, and that it is a real shame that they never released a full length album, this album still captures some great music. The lead guitar work on this disc is great. He is one of the great unsung psychedelic guitarists and some of their jams rival ven country joe and the fish. I recomend this to anyone who loves that old jam band sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Those Who Want More! August 1, 2013
By Surf Beat!

I Was Pretty Excited To Get This And Thought It Was Great! Like The Above Mentioned Comments, Yeah, There Is A Couple Tracks That Have A Kind Of Poor Quality To Them, But The Rest Are Decent Enough To Listen To And Enjoy, And If You, Like Me Just Cant Get Enough Of Their 3 Song Ep And Wanna Hear More Of What They Had To Offer This Is Definetly Worth Picking Up, Chain Reaction, What Is A Bandersnatch?, Woodrose Syrup, 45 Cents, Can a Bliss Are All Amazing Songs And Show Evidence That These Guys Had More Psychedelic Greatness Under Their Sleeves Than Just A 3 Song Teaser! Great Musicianship And Harmonies!, At Times Even Like (A More Psychedelic) Moby Grape!
Worth Picking Up!
