Album Cover Art Wednesday: Electric Music for the Mind and Body

I wrote about Country Joe McDonald last Saturday so it’s only right to discuss his band’s 1967 album, Electric Music for the Mind and Body. The band’s name combined McDonald’s nickname with that of Barry (The Fish) Melton: Country Joe and the Fish. I did not know until researching this LP that co-leader Barry Melton has been a public defender in Mendocino County in California for many years. I guess he can usually tell when something’s fishy.

Here’s the hippie dippy front cover, which designed by Jules Halfant. Groovy. man.

Here’s the back cover.

The whole damn LP is available on YouTube. It’s pretty darn good, especially Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine, which was a track that got lots of FM airplay.

    Hot stuff in the summer of ’67: fifty yrs. later (Where did all that time go?!?) it’s still pretty damn good.
