Fuzz, Acid and Flowers, by Vernon Joynson, is a book comprising "an encyclopaedic guide to U.S. rock and pop from the early-60s to mid-70s covering garage, psychedelic and hippie rock." At one time, the entire resource was online.
The original site went offline some time in 2005. The cover below is from the original U.K. print edition; this reconstructed entry is from the online edition. A revised version of the book is currently available, published by Borderline Productions.
Note: One of the founding members of Orpheus has requested that his name and any audio clips of performances including his voice or his instrumental work, or of songs that he has written, be removed from this page. As a courtesy to this individual, we have replaced his name with (name deleted), despite the fact that it was a part of the original text. We have not, however, removed the audio clips of the songs below, because:
(1) our posting of these short clips constitutes "fair use;"
(2) similar clips of these performances are widely available on dozens, if not hundreds of web sites; and
(3) rights to these songs and / or performances reside with Iris Properties, Inc., not with the aforesaid
individual, and we have posted these clips with the permission of the copyright holder.
