Formed in 1965-66, The Chocolate Watchband was one of the first, and greatest, American psychedelic garage projects. The tracks on Dark Side Of The Mushroom, a 10-track compilation, were recorded between 1967 and 1968 and produced by Ed Cobb, the mastermind behind the Standells. The tracks are recorded by varying personnel – some by all session musicians – but Cobb’s vision unites them as a musical whole equal to any of the period.
