Miss Butters - Family Tree

Miss Butters
A classic of West Coast psychpop. and a much sought after gem, after the breakup of San Francisco garage groups The Brogues ("Ain't no miracle worker"), most members went on to Quicksilver Messenger Service. Bassist Bill Whittington formed The Family Tree with Bob Segarini of The Ratz and the enigmatic Lee Michaels....the latter soon dropped out, and a couple of innovative singles for the mysterious LA based Mira label brought them to the attention of not only RCA, but Sunbury music's Dick Campbell and his friend and big hope, Harry Nilsson....with input from Harry (at this time being hailed as a genius by The Beatles nd writing songs for everyone from The Monkees and The Turtles on down) the band embarked on the semi-conceptual album "Miss Butters". An amazing semi-lost gem of West Coast psychpop genius on a par with Harry Nilsson's own records of the period - the evidence? Draw the comparisons to Nilsson's "Aerial Ballet": ‘Miss Butters’ was recorded in Los Angeles in 1968. Same producer. Same arranger. Same album cover painter. Same studio Nilsson co-wrote one of the tunes. Released the same week as "Aerial Ballet." (The "Aerial Ballet" RCA selection number was 3956. "Miss Butters" was 3955), But the thing is... it's even BETTER than that, and this deluxe first-time reissue also contains the great and amazingly rare non-LP singles...what are you waiting for!!!!! First EVER time on CD for this enigmatic and collectable group! Beautifully remastered from the original MONO mastertapes (the stereo mix was done by an assistant engineer alone and is a travesty according to the band members!). Amazing packaging including previously unpublished photos and in-depth liner notes with the participation of the legendary Bob Segarini. Predated Roxy, The Wackers, and his solo power pop opus, "Gotta Have Pop".
