Rock on ninetynine.  You're a fan of The Tea Company.  :cool:  I'm glad I was able to bring some happiness to you.  Just for you, here's more info about the band and another song from their 1968 album "Come Have Some Tea With The Tea Company"....................




Quote:

The Tea Company

Personnel:
FRANKIE CARRETTA gtr, ld vcls A
MIKE LASSANDO drms, backing vcls A
JOHN VANCHO bs, backing vcls A
AL VERTUCCI gtr, ld/backing vcls A


ALBUM:
1(A) COME AND HAVE SOME TEA WITH THE TEA COMPANY (Smash 67105) 1968

NB: (1) has been counterfeited on LP and CD. There is also a superior CD edition, released by band member Mike Lassandro - see main text for details. 

45:
1 Come And Have Some Tea With Me/Flowers (Smash 2176) 1968


Tea was another word for marijuana, so with a name like The Tea Company, it is clear what to expect from their sole album. It is an interesting effort, with the title track and ten-minute cut, Flowers outstanding. The latter sounds Beatles-influenced psychedelia, with high-pitched guitar notes superimposed upon a typical psychedelic backing. It sounds rather like an extended version of the ending to Strawberry Fields Forever. Aside from a slowed-down version of The Supremes' hit You Keep Me Hanging On, all the compositions are originals and some are full of the usual hippie cliches and social commentary, for example, Love Could Make The World Go Round and Make Love Not War. Their sole 45 contained shorter versions of two cuts from their album, with Flowers being a drastically edited and remixed version.

The group, who were originally called The Lip-Tin Tea Company, came from Queens, N.Y. and evolved out of The Naturals. They played mostly in New York City, Long Island, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Al Vertucci recalls:- "The Tea Company and all The Naturals stuff was done at Ultra-Sonic by Bill Stahl". Ultra-Sonic was "in Hempstead, L.I., and the owner/engineer was Bill Stahl who did all of the 'Fudge and Shangri-Las stuff there. One of the great engineers ever!! He did with four tracks what people can't do today with 48. The Tea Company LP (which was recorded on 8 tracks) was then re-mixed and ruined at A&R Recording, 7th Avenue in NYC by Mercury's Dick Corby."

Frankie Carr's All Natural Band later turned up in 1977 with a same-titled LP on the Tribute label.

The Tea Company album has also been reissued on CD by band member Mike Lassandro, and is superior to the counterfeit "no label" CD which is also in circulation. Anyone interested in getting the band-authorised copy should email mikecompu@yahoo.com who is selling copies for $15.

The freaky hubbly-bubbly instrumental Don't Make Waves has also turned up on Buzz Buzz Buzzzzzz Vol. 1 (CD). You can also find Flowers (45 version) on A Heavy Dose Of Lyte Psych (CD).

(Vernon Joynson/Max Waller w/thanks to Al Vertucci and Mike Lassandro)

i love classic rock and all that hippy shit, but having been born in 1981, i have a limited knowlege of bands from back them. i'm basicly just familiar with what i've heard on the radio. and that gets me to thinking... 95% of the stuff i hear on the radio these days, it's pure comercial crap. and i imagine that the same was true back then. which basically means that there must have been lots of smaller bands making amazing music 30 years ago that i'm never going to hear because they didn't have a "platnium" album. it's really kind of depressing.

so learyfan, thanks for working aginst that. :smile: :thumbup:

Yeah dude, there's SO MUCH music from the 60's that mostly only garage fans know about.  I actually don't see a big difference between that stuff and the mainstream stuff from that era other than the fact that the underground bands were a lot more explicit about psychedelic drugs, though.
