Strawberry Window hailed from the San Francisco Bay Area’s East Bay music scene in the mid 60s and were truly one of the “early birds” and innovators who made their own distinct brand of Rock’n’roll. They played in a heavy-psychedelic-garage style, sounding somewhat reminiscent of the Jefferson Airplane, (early) Mad River, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Frumious Bandersnatch. These previously unreleased recordings have survived for the last four decades in a box on a shelf in a band members closet. Meticulous care and detail has been taken to master these recordings with a fresh, open approach, while ensuring that the sound and integrity of the vintage songs remained intact. The amazing music of this guitar based quartet ranges from catchy electric folk tunes and “West Coast” garage rock to raw energetic acid jams lasting over 10 minutes. Youll be impressed by the (stereo) sound quality throughout their ten original cuts not to mention their freaky live version of J D Loudermilks Tobacco Road. Its an out right shame that this talented bunch were not signed to a record deal back then. (In 1968 they switched guitar players, added a girl singer and changed their name to the Dandelion Wine and recorded several songs and also released a private pressing of a 4 song 7 inch EP.) World In Sound presents for the first time ever, the music of and the history behind this talented group of songwriters and wild performers known as the Strawberry Window. The LP-version will be 180g vinyl, handmade extra heavy sleeve, poster and a 3-track 7″ EP, in total 60 minutes of intense but melodic performances that will take you on a trip back to the halcyon days of the Summer of Love. Discover it, its truly a masterpiece from the roots of the legendary SF-Sound!!!
