Willie And The Red Rubber Band - We're Comin' Up (1969 us, awesome r 'n' b garage psych, original Vinyl)

Texas band, lead by Willie Redden and released two albums in the late 60's. This is their second effort "We're Comin' Up" saw the light of the day in 1969. A really pleasant trip with roots n' roll and blues to psych sunshine pop, influenced by Ray Charles, Muddy Waters, Buddy Holly among the others.

Way down deep roots, bare feet on warm earth - warm spreading, comin' up filling the vessel, gotta come out, come up and sounding like the Blues. Roots down deep in the soil of West Texas, the Blues lives there, is the soil, the warm earth, endless sky. Tapping the roots is all, filling the vessel.
