"Orphan Egg's only release, this self-titled album which appeared on the Carole Record label in 1968. The band, formed in 1967 in San Jose, was one of the lengthy list of Bay area groups inspired by the psych movement spreading its tentacles from the sound's spiritual home in San Francisco. The album, which also boasts some strong UK beat/psych influences a la early Status Quo, features lashings of incredible heavy fuzz guitar psych on a number of tracks, several of which were deemed worthy enough to feature in director Maury Dexter's exploitation flick, Born Wild, and which also included a memorable scene of the band strutting their musical stuff at a pool party. The album consists of several covers including a killer version of the old Everly Brothers' hit, 'Bird Dog.' Apart from this, the self-penned tunes really are the stand-outs here, with the feisty fuzz guitar, bass, drums, a little recorder and a smattering of harpsichord, combining, along the beautiful trippy vocals, to produce an ethereal, floating psych sound that makes for a hugely enjoyable listen."

Typical '68 lyte-psych with an eclectic (or rag-tag) assortment of "hip" sounds; at best an edgy melodic fuzz-psych presence a la Food, at worst a wimpy early Brit Invasion vibe. Strong UK beat-psych influences throughout (think early Status Quo), with some side-glances at the commercial psych sound out of LA. Obvious signs of talent, given another 6 months or so they probably could have made a really good LP. Neat, zit-faced freshman vocals and 3-4 tracks that hit the vintage teen-psych moves right on means the LP needs to be heard, while some poorly chosen covers and an unsuccessful "heavy blues" excursion seals its ultimate fate in a manner similar to the Rainy Daze LP. This seems to have been the last album released by this shortlived GNP Crescendo subsidiary. Also released in Germany by Vogue. The band appears on the "Cycle Savages" movie soundtrack (AIP, 1970).
