The Aquarian Age - 10,000 Words in a Cardboard Box, Single from 1968. The B-Side is, "Good Wizard Meets Naughty Wizard."
This 45 appeared on the Parlophone label in May 1968 and was recorded by two members of the recently defunct band Tomorrow. Drummer John ‘Twink’ Alder and bassist John ‘Junior’ Wood were joined on the single by Clem Cattini on drums and Nicky Hopkins on piano. The 45 was arranged and produced by Mark Wirtz (the mastermind behind the uncompleted A Teenage Opera project, which only yielded a couple of singles at the time), who had worked with Tomorrow on their self-titled album released in February 1968, an essential artifact in any collection of UK psychedelia.
‘10,000 Words In a Cardboard Box’ is a perfect slice of psychedelic pop, with prominent orchestration that adds to the impact of the song. It doesn’t always have to be about fuzz guitars!

Spontaneous Corruption - Freaky Girl, Single from 1968. The B-Side is, "Looking Glass of Time."
Spontaneous Corruption were a psychedelic rock trio from Cleveland, Ohio (1967-69) that included Danny Sheridan (bass), Kenny Hamlin (guitar), and Greg Giancola (drums). The band recorded a couple songs at Cleveland Recording and got it on Philips records through producer Roger Karshner. "Freaky Girl" was a band original and sounds like a bluesy snarl take off on Hendrix's "Purple Haze". The flip side "Looking Glass of Time" includes some outrageous non-sequiteurs like "Mr. Jones' kidney stones on the ground....a crack is running through my seam....". A local paper actually reviewed the record and gave a scathing put down! Danny Sheridan decided he wanted to try something different, so he formed Eli Radish. Greg Giancola later played with Deadly Earnest (while "hillbilly-ing" his name to G.G. Gregg) before starting a talent agency. Kenny Hamlin joined the Paper Train and later became an record executive in the Elektra-Asylum organization. Via Discogs: https://www.discogs.com/artist/1419669-Spontaneous-Corruption

Cykle - Do My Thing, from the 1969 LP, "Cykle."
During the spring of 1968, songwriter and drummer Jimmy Sossamon heard a local group, the Glory Cykle, that impressed him so much that he approached them about becoming their manager, which they agreed to. The band -- guitarists Ralph Stevens and Jeff Hardin, bassist Grady Pope, organist Rick Wilson, and drummer/vocalist Ken Allen -- practiced at the studio Sossamon had built in his parent's garage, and by the end of the year, Sossamon had assumed the drumming duties to free up Allen as lead vocalist. They also shortened the band name to Cykle, and in early 1969, began recording an album consisting entirely of Sossamon originals. The resultant eponymous LP was pressed in small quantities later that year.
