1 - OTHER HALF, THE
- MR. PHARMACIST - (7")
This is a licensed reissue on 7" vinyl of the killer garage single by the Other Half published by GNP Crescendo in 1966 and never reprinted since. The Other Half was a 5 pieces band that included the guitar wizard Randy Holden who went on to join Blue Cheer later on. TOH members were originaly from L.A., then moved to San Francisco in the mid sixties. The Other Half' sound was a brutal but fairly advanced rock interpretation of the R&B performed by British bands such as The Rolling Stones & Them. Although less known, they were really on par with American bands such as Music Machine, the Sonics and the Wailers. Mr Pharmacist is their best known and much sought after single. It was covered by The Fall with great success in the 80's. It is an uptempo, mean, hard, relentless white R&B number showcasing a sophisticated combination of wild guitars, outstanding drums and powerful vocals. And unbelievable lyrics to match... On the flip side "I've Come So Far" is a slower number backed with some awesome piano (reminiscing of the Seeds) and great vocals to boot. Irresistible. The release is on a high quality 42 grams 7" vinyl 45 RPM Mono as per the original.
