Edison Electric Band - Bless You Dr. Woodword (1970)

Originally released on Atlantic/Cotillion in 1970, the only album by this Philadelphia combo is a lost nugget which exemplifies the musical freedom of the late 60's, but looks toward the groovy and funky melodicism that would dominate the 70's. Village Voice critic Robert Christgau wrote "Tight, melodic music that thrives somewhere in an uncharted region triangulated by rock, pop, and jazz. Beautifully engineered, too." Members of the band went on to become successful session musicians, performing on essential recordings by Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, Maria Muldaur, and John Mayall. Co-produced by legendary jazz producer Joel Dorn. Freak Emporium
