USA produced such a vast variety of garage bands, that were highly influenced by major known bands of the time like Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix & The Experience and The Grateful Dead. Every little town in the US has been over-flooded with teenagers full of enthusiasm and ideas reflecting the electrifying times, when everything suddenly seemed to be possible. One of the better local bands, that came and went with the '60s fading into plastic '70s were Ventura County Bleu Forest. So far only a handful of people heard these 1967 unreleased recordings, which were hidden in Caviness (only surviving member) basement and let me say this: What we have here is a lost psych-garage classic.
The very first recordings by the BLEU FOREST happened after they played a show at the "Hey You Coffeehouse" in Ventura, CA. Jimmie Haskell decided to have them come to Hollywood and record on the spot at his place. His intention was to capture how the band sounded live, and this is what you get in Ichiban: Two mics, the band, a recording machine, no retakes, spontaneity and raw energy, a time-capsule direct From Jimmie's place in 1967. The sound and the style reminiscent of what was happening in San Francisco around 1966/1967 is captured in these recordings. ichiban mirros the pinnacle days at Haight-Ashbury, echoes of the summer of love, "Turn on, tune in, drop out"!
