And speaking as we were the other day of perhaps unfairly underrated soft-rockers The Association -- from early 1967, please enjoy the psychedelic from stem to stern mind alteration that is "Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies."
I must confess to being having been inordinately fond of this one from the long ago moment I first heard it on my car radio via WMCA-AM, but I gotta say -- the idea that anybody thought this was a smart choice as the follow-up single to the band's huge hit "Cherish" is proof positive that indulgence in certain recreational drugs is not always a good career move.
I should also add that one of my favorite things about this is the use of a Japanese koto -- played by the song's composer, Gary Alexander -- as the record's instrumental hook; I guess they figured if the Beatles could use a sitar, why not a koto? In any case, I believe this is the first (and only) use of said exotic instrument on a pop record until The Wackers covered John Lennon's "Oh My Love" some five years later.
Meanwhile, just because I like you guys, here's a mono version of the song's instrumental track.
And just in case you're as nutty and obsessed with this one as I am, here's a download link to the stereo version of the single.
