The Smack - S/T 1968

Smack was formed by 4 students from Longview, Washington on a summer scholarship for music and arts at the University of Kansas, Lawrence. Within' a few weeks of their inception, the were playing gigs around campus. Someone from the University arranged for them to cut an album. They recorded it live on a 4 track, (except vocals) in late July, early August 1968, and played all covers form the likes of Cream, Hendrix, The Kinks, and others. I would have loved to hear some original material from the band. It's great heavy fuzz psych, and the musicianship is damn good.
