Country Joe And The Fish - Country Joe And The Fish E.P.


Rag Baby Records 1966

01 Bass Strings

02 Thing Called Love

03 Section 43

I don'y always like the music of Country Joe, but I've always been interested in their idea of using records as propaganda and promotion of counter culture ideas.

This E.P. (their second release) became legendary in San Francisco and was sold for $1 a copy. Despite it's cottage industry origins, it appeared in underground record shops in New York and London.

Moving away from folky protest, the band move into bay area psychedelia.
