An album full of VINTAGE 1966-1968 Music by the band that brought you the incredible "HASHISH" on the legendary San Franciso Sampler "Fifth Pipe Dream". First ever release of this killer Westcoast psychedelic monster that took many years to complete!!! West Coast Natural Gas started in 1965 in Seattle. In early 1967 they went to San Francisco to work for a local music manager named Matthew Katz. Katz was the original manager for Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape and later also It's a Beautiful Day. He talked West Coast Natural Gas into signing a contract with him but being young and stupid, they didn't realize at the time that they had basically signed everything over to him.
The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band was a bizarre combination of three well-heeled teenagers (brothers Dan and Shaun Harris and their school mate Michael Lloyd), and an even wealthier, thirty-something attorney called Bob Markley. Markley secured the group a recording deal with Reprise Records, where they made a series of strange records. While they scored no hits for the label, the band's most famous composition was 'Smell Of Incense'. which was covered to great effect by Southwest F. O. B., among others. The song was composed by Markley with a later addition to the band, guitarist Ron Morgan. As the composition reveals, Morgan was a highly talented (he later played with The Electric Prunes and a very early edition of Three Dog Night) and troubled individual. He died in 1989. Although the fate of the group svengali Bob Markley is, at present, unknown, Lloyd and the Harris brothers recently reunited to record some new WCPAEB music.
