(Freedom - sadly neglected but never ignored)

While I am knee deep in sifting and editing the pressing history of the day, I thought I would take a break and offer up a little sadly neglected psychedelia from 1968. Freedom was an interesting band with a steller, but somewhat short-lived history. I came to know them via their second incarnation and an album issued on ABC Records in 1971 - but this was their first incarnation formed in 1967 and their debut single for Mercury featuring ex-Procol Harum members Bobby Harrison on drums and Ray Royer on Guitar with Steve Shirley on bass. When I first heard it I thought it was a mislabeled previously unknown Traffic single, but "Trying to Catch A Glimpse Of You" was the B-side of their initial 45 release on May of 1968. It only seems fair to offer the A-side at some point soon.

Fans of the Mellotron - rejoice!
