Description

William Penn & His Pals (also known as William Penn Fyve) were the ultimate 60s garage band from the Bay Area. Their line-up featured Mike Shapiro on lead guitar (author of the garage, acid-punk anthem ‘Swami’) and Gregg Rolie (of Santana/Journey fame) on organ & vocals. Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead was also the drummer for a brief period. Here’s the first ever vinyl release of their complete recordings, including their fuzze/out “Swami” & “Blow My Mind” 45 of Pebbles fame plus prime cut ’66 unissued recordings. A feat of garage-punk and teen-beat. Includes a color insert telling their amazing story by San Fran rock historian Bruno Ceriotti plus rare photos & memorabilia.Β Download card.
