Hootch - "Hootch" {USA} [1974] (Psych Rock)

No valuable review around. Think of 4-5 some good musicians met in a bar for the first time and then they went to studio to record some tunes for heaten up. This is like that. Good work and collectible. Keep listening.

I've just found that short review in "Acid Archives", by Patrick the Lama :
"Obscure high school-project westcoasty heroin vibe guitar jams, mostly instrumental with two good vocal cuts; the rest is laidback snakey Garcia-type workouts with a slightly eerie vibe. One of the better LPs in this bag, recommended to those into non-heavy early 70s psych. "Arabian Style" is a personal fave. Primitive purple silkscreened sleeve."

And from "Fuzz Acid & Flowers", info about the band :
Personnel:
HENRY ERKELENZ A
THOMAS S. HENRY A
DOUG LEMIRANDE A
BOB MALONEY A
LAURA SCHAEFER A

ALBUM:
1(A) HOOTCH (Pro-Gress PRS 4844) 1974 R3/R4

NB: (1) some copies had a handmade silkscreen cover, the others a plain white one. Reissued in 1994 on Rollocks (Rollock 1001) - limited to 400 copies.

From Wisconsin, this band's sole album is a very rare and mostly instrumental piece. Competent and at times quite experimental but nothing to get really excited about.

Thanks for posting this record !

This is just as good as it gets. Good psychedelic beat. Sounds like a cross between the Doors, Cream, Hendrix, et al. I wish I could find this CD. I cannot believe how truly excellent it is!
