Biography

Experimental and innovative, the Columbus-based McKendree Spring mixed blues, folk and country with a progressive musical vision. Over the course of seven albums, they highlighted the songs of singer/guitarist Fran McKendree and offered up unique interpretations of songs by Bob Dylan, Neil Young and James Taylor. McKendree Spring built much of their reputation as a live act by featuring the virtuosity of guitarist Marty Slutsky and violinist Doc Dreyfuss.

    Precisely the "God Bless The Conspiracy" theme, was one of the most representatives of their psychedelic sound. Over all the mixing of acoustic and electric sounds with a total creativity in composition.

    I know this probably doesn't mean much at this date, but McKendree Spring was one of the finest bands I've ever seen life, a least a dozen times during the late 60s and early 70s. We take it for granted, now, that a band will take a stage and play them just like we heard them on the radio or on a CD. This band could play the same song seven times in seven concerts and, somehow, make it same a dozen. Excellent musicians, no matter how popular, should always be remembered for their playing and their riffing. These guys were great.

    One of the best live bands ever. Cleveland, OH about 1973.

    this shoutbox has far more shouts than i would have imagined it would. what an odd band. songs move from soft rock to country rock to prog rock. great harmonies and killer violin.
