ROCK SHOP - Mr. Lee's "Swing'n Affair" Presents - 1967, Radioactive


Hailing from California, they became one of the most popular bands in the area, playing regularly at Mr Lee's Swingin' Affair nightclub in West Covina to packed houses. The band's one and only album, featured 12 self-penned tracks of fuzz-led blues and psych, as well as boasting a spoof cover depicting the band as the next Beatles and hairdresser-cum-rock promoter Mr Lee as God! Despite enjoying a minor level of success including supporting both the Shirelles and Big Joe Turner, the band called it a day in 1969, leaving this lone recording as their epitaph. This extremely rare album has a strong mix of late '60s sounds that, given the high musical standard and excellent recording quality, still stand up amazingly well today. Highly recommended.
