A Gathering Of Promises + Bonus (CD)
Deluxe, limited edition digi-book re-issue of highly-regarded 1969 Psych classic including eight bonus tracks. The accompanying 16-page illustrated booklet features unique quotes about the band, the music and the times from original band member David Fore, who was specially interviewed for this release. Bubble Puppy were International Artists label's second biggest act in terms of chart action after The 13th Elevators. They enjoyed a degree of commercial success with their distinct high-energy, hippy Rock-Pop sound and look. Formed in San Antonio in 1967, their first 45 waxing, the brilliant Hendrix-inspired 'Hot Smoke & Sassafras', combined Hard Rock with fresh vocal harmonies and reached #14 in the U.S. charts in March 1969. 18 tracks. Snapper. Short-lived Texas psychedelic rockers Bubble Puppy stuck around long enough for only one album, but A GATHERING OF PROMISES is a fine legacy. It contains the band's signature single, "Hot Smoke and Sasafrass," which actually hit the Top 40 at the time, and it shows Bubble Puppy to have been heavily influenced by West Coast contemporaries like Moby Grape, mixing three-part harmonies and solid songcraft with a tasty dash of fuzz-guitar frenzy.
