fapardokly Fapardokly (CD, £12.50)label: Gearfab
Back on CD after being out of print for many, many years, it's the the ultra-rare 1968 psychedelic masterpiece recorded by Merrell Fankhauser and his Southern California group The Exiles. Back in the day the group cut several singles for the tiny Glenn label before mutating into H.M.S. Bounty. The equally tiny UIP label decided to gather a few of the Glenn singles, add a few more psychedelically oriented tracks, and release the package as the work of a non-existent group called Fapardokly. Although the recordings were never intended as a unified work, the LP stands as one of the great lost classics of the '60s. Fankhauser went on to make more excellent recordings with H.M.S. Bounty in the late '60s and Mu in the early '70s.
