1) The Zoo were a psychedelic rock band formed in 1968 by Murphy ‘Chocolate Moose’ Carfagna, the band also featured Mike Flicker on drums and Howard Leese on lead guitar both of whom went on to join Heart, Leese as guitarist and Flicker as the band’s producer.
Originally released on Ed Cobb’s Sunburst label (Sunburst 7500), this little psych treasure was reissued by Radioactive Records.
The Zoo captures the sound of the late 60s, crossing Strawberry Alarm Clock pop tracks like Have You Been Sleepin' and Get Some Beads with harder rockers like the title track.
Leese has captured the SF sound of Quicksilver perfectly making this for a fun listen.
The album, rare at the time, has now become a major collectors item.
