Organ Freakout

The swinginist Hammond organ album since the birth of psychedelia!

It's bad enough when some two-bit record company throws together an album soley to cash in on the latest musical trend. When the latest trend is psychedelia, the result is nothing short of ridiculous, as this unbelievable album from the late 60's aptly demonstrates. I guess the films I saw about hippies dropping acid to the tunes of the Dead and Jefferson Airplane didn't tell the whole story -- somehow I missed the part about middle-aged guys playing psychedelic Lowrey organs surrounded by chicks in mini-skirts. Peace, man.

One can only hope that the kids who bought this album were suitably disappointed when dropping the needle on such tracks as "Golden Gate Freakout", "The Acid Test", or "Joshua Got Busted" only to be rewarded with sounds no hipper than what you'd find at a suburban cocktail party. This record wouldn't have any soul if you wrapped a fish with it.

When the Mustang mounts the Hammond and the AMPS start cookin', lookout baby, it's an Organ Freakout

Songs:

Ah Cid (Real Audio) Ah, cid? Yeah, I get it.
Tennessee Waltz Frug (Real Audio) What's a 'frug' ?
Old Time Religion Gone New (Real Audio) If this song were any longer, it might well drive you into an uncontrollable psychedelic frenzy. Better have someone keep an eye on you just in case.

This project was just full of double entendres, wasn't it? "Organ Freakout"--- isn't that what happens when a man ODs on Viagra? And I DON'T need the mental picture I get from the phrase, "When the Mustang mounts the Hammond"! "Here's where it's happening, baby"--- NOT! (02-06-2005)

One year in the late 60's my brother and I both put "rock album" on our Christmas wish list. We were so excited to see that each of us had an album-shaped present under the tree on Christmas Eve. Imagine our disgust when we opened our presents and mine was "Organ Freakout" and my brother's was an album by three guys called something like "The Dovells". (06-24-2004)

Doctor Distorto (jones9888@bellsouth.net) says:
Had always heard this was a great record,
found it on the cheap, rushed home to hearth and
turntable, and heard the music that played when-
ever Jack Webb would bust up a hippie party
back in the day. Not that there's anything wrong with that...best to just ogle the cover. (05-02-2004)
