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.

I actually found a copy of this album in a thrift store. I convulsed with laughter after reading the back cover and I knew that I had to have it. But, when I finally played it to hear what "The Mustang" had to offer, a little bit of the funny went away. (01-21-2004)

Ouch!

This has got to be the most notorious "exhibit" of all the albums featured in Frank's Vinyl Museum!!

Apparantly, the copywriter who suggested in the liner notes that a Hammond Organ all by itself could create psychedelic sounds must have been having a freak out!! (11-15-2003)

What was wrong with dropping acid to the dead or the Airplane, Man it kept me occupied for most of the 70'S, AND, it was a whole bunch of fun! (10-02-2003)

Is this anyway related to Animated Egg and /or Haircuts and the Impossibles? Or is it not even there? The song titles are interesting in their possibilities.. subjectiveness translates from experience and preference (09-03-2003)

The FRUG is a happenin' dance!! saw it on the Game Show Network's Black and White overnight, actually...

The FRUG

1. Put your left hand on your hip, elbow out.
2. put your other arm in the air, bend your wrist and kind of point or something, and shake your finger like "naughty naughty".
3. Wiggle your ass, bob up and down up and down and shake your finger in time with the music. That's it.

That's the way they did the frug on TV, anyway.

If I understood why Organ Freakout was made it might be easier to take. I'm just so confused. It's like staring at a turd floating in Ambrosia; why? Why? For the love of God, WHY? (08-09-2002)
