Album Review

One of the most sought-after rock rarities of the '60s, this album was stylistically uneven, as can be expected from an LP cobbled together from recordings spanning a few years. About half, however, is sparkling psychedelic folk-rock, recalling Fifth Dimension Byrds with its shimmering twelve-string guitars, multipart harmonies, and occasional trippy lyrics. Although the early material is more pop-oriented and doesn't fit in as well, it's pretty solid, recalling the Zombies and (in the very earliest tracks) Ricky Nelson. "Lila," "Tomorrow's Girl," and "Super Market" are genuine lost '60s treasures, and much of the rest of the album isn't far behind.

Moody, Mysterious, Eclectic and Intriguing...

If ever a reissue could make Merrell Fankhauser a household name, this is it! This scarce classic is nothing less than a moody, mysterious, eclectic junket to all charted depots of the inner psyche, along with several stops completely off the map. Wonderful and intriguing in the best Sundazed style. Take a chance; have we ever led you astray? If you like this artist you might want to check out Merrell Fankhauser & H.M.S. Bounty, Gandalf II and Southwest F.O.B. from Sundazed Music!

It's really cool listening to something that used to be so rare. I hope the band is happy with the small legacy they've left behind.

Though they were considered an enigma in the world of '60s rock collectibles, there was never a group called Fapardokly; the 12 songs on their self-titled album were recorded by Merrell & the Exiles, a Southern California group headed by legendary cult folk-rocker Merrell Fankhauser. That group cut several singles for the tiny Glenn label before heading off in a psychedelic direction and mutating into H.M.S. Bounty. The equally tiny UIP label decided to gather a few of the Glenn singles, add a few...
