Skip Bifferty - short lived, but left a big impression.

Back to the heady, halcyon year of 1967 when Psychedelia was in full bloom and bands were heading in a Paisley direction in droves.

One of those bands was Skip Bifferty, a short lived outfit who went off in other directions after their breakup in November of 1968 but who left one pivotal album from 1967 and a slew of singles to their credit.

Although not a commercial success by any means, Skip Bifferty were an underground legend at the time and their legend has only loomed larger over the years as each successive group of music enthusiasts discover them.

Tonight it's Money Man, the opening track off their first (and only) album, recorded for RCA-UK and available for a relatively short period of time before vanishing from the shelves.

Further evidence 1967 was a very interesting year.
