Salvation - 1st & Gypsy Carnival Caravan (1968)

Artie McLean - bass
Teddy Stewart - drums
Joe Tate - guitar
U.S. Of Arthur - organ, keyboards
Tom Scott - flute, sax
Bill Plummer - sitar
Al Linde - vocal

Excellent psych from these San Francisco Hippies, great acid leads, some sitar too.

San Francisco psychedelic band Salvation was formed in 1967 by singer Al Linde and guitarist Joe Tate, who first met while students at the University of Washington. Bassist Artie McLean, keyboardist Art Resnick, and drummer Teddy Stewart later completed the original lineup, which at first called itself the New Salvation Army Banned.

After earning featured spots in a series of concerts in Golden Gate Park, the band signed to ABC Records, albeit on the condition they abbreviate their name for fear of legal action from the actual Salvation Army. Salvation's self-titled debut album followed in 1968, boasting an expansive, eclectic sound highlighted by the first single, "Think Twice."

Opening slots for bands including the Doors, Big Brother & the Holding Company, and Canned Heat followed, and around the time of their second album, 1969's Gypsy Carnival Caravan, Salvation traveled to New York City to headline the Fillmore East and the Village Gate. But their future was jeopardized after the group's management reputedly ran off with their ABC advance, and in 1970 Salvation dissolved; Resnick later resurfaced in jazz circles with a handful of solo recordings as well as sideman dates behind Nat Adderley, Freddie Hubbard, and others (Jason Ankeny).

Hi Savage Saints

Thanks for your answer. My english is very poor so I can't explain to you exactly.
I use Macbook system. I have no problem to download links and open without PW, but with PW it's not possible to open. I can't understand !
But I don't mind. I like your blog and I take links with no PW.

Cheers from Paris

Hasło działa bez zarzutu. Przed chwilą sam zrobiłem download i zrestowałem. Tak więc nie bardzo wiem jaki jest problem. Ale OK - jeśli komuś to przeszkadza to tu jest nowy link bez hasła. Pozdrawiam.

Now I undestand Bertrand. I'm still a Bill Gates prisoner. So here you can find a link without password. Greetings.
