"Unlike a lot of the other Holy Grails I've seen out there, though, this one is very interesting and very good. It is very much a product of its time – a little shaggy, with its four-part harmonies, backward guitar, spoken word – even some autoharp, if I'm not mistaken." (Salon)

"Originally from Portland, the New Tweedy Brothers were formed by brothers Fred and Danny Lackaff, plus Dennis Fagaly and Steve Ekman. In 1966, they relocated to San Francisco, where they were part of the exploding, nascent psychedelic ballroom scene, influencing none other than Jerry Garcia, and sharing the stage with bands like The Warlocks (pre-Grateful Dead), Quicksilver, and Big Brother, among others. Upon returning to Oregon, they self-released their only album in 1968, housed in a striking hexagonal, over-sized silver foil cover, now a holy grail between psychedelic collectors. Innocent vocal harmonies, fuzzy bass, jangly guitars, raga sounds -- 100% uncut psychedelia and garage-y, jangly folk-rock from 1968." (Forced Exposure)
