Crazy Elephant - Dark Part of My Mind



Grettings from Boston (Allston) Mass!!!

Crazy ass fucking B side here:

Anyone as old as me will remember the AM gold that was Crazy Elephants "Gimmie Gimmie Good Love" and while the below my be true. This here cut is a far cry from "Bubble Gum" music, more like a Blue Cheer bad acid trip...

Crazy Elephant was one of the seemingly endless aliases employed by the Kasenetz-Katz production duo to market their bubblegum hits of the late 1960s. Primarily a vehicle for session vocalist Robert Spencer — previously known for his performance with the Cadillacs' post "Speedo" — Crazy Elephant was the name appended to the Kasenetz-Katz production of the song "Gimme Gimme Good Lovin'"; after the master was rejected by Buddah Records, the Super K Productions duo's primary outlet, they instead shopped the track to the Bell label, for whom it fell just shy of the U.S. Top Ten in 1969. Despite the single's success, however, Crazy Elephant failed to reach the charts again, instead becoming yet another interchangeable cog in the Kasenetz-Katz hit machine.

Keep the lights "on" for this one.
