Chocolate Watch Band - No Way Out 67 w The Inner Mystique 68 w One Step Beyond 69 w CD w bonus trax

These guys never made it big outside their San Jose scene but that's O.K. as that is what makes them so special.  First thing I noticed in my initial listen was that JFA's instrumental tune 'Unknown' is no longer unknown as it sounds like 'Dark Side of the Mushroom'.  But this is just the start of the familiarity with tunes like 'Medication', 'Milk Cow Blues', 'I'm Not Like Everybody Else' or 'Sweet Young Thing' so greatly influencing the neo-paisley bands of the 80s.  I know you will enjoy!  P.S. My disk had disc rot for the 2nd LP title track and 5th song after that so they were blank.  I have downloaded from another blog and fixed the file for link 2 below.
