(H.P. Lovecraft - for once, there was a certain amount of truth in advertising)
No self-respecting stoners record collection would have been complete in the late 60s without at least one H.P. Lovecraft lp, usually the self-titled first one. And invariably this track, The White Ship, was the one usually the most worn on the album.
And with good reason - it's a classic. H.P. Lovecraft were together for a comparatively short period of time. Personnel and direction kept changing, but their first album, released in late 1967 is probably the most memorable owing to it's completely unique sound and eerie vocals, particularly the high tenor of Dave Michaels who turns The White Ship into the haunting masterpiece it is.
1967 was indeed an interesting year.
