The band only recorded one album for Vanguard – all tracks written by singer/organist Michael Tschudin, this one sharing a co-credit with one Gilbert Moses – but they nailed a particularly woozy sound on this one with nice bluesy, psychedelic guitar from Peter Malick.
And that's about the sum total of Elsewhere's knowledge on this short-lived band although Malick's subsequent group featured a young singer called Norah Jones in the early 2000s.
And bassist Walter Powers was in the Doug Yule-led Velvet Underground after Lou Reed and Stirling Morrison's departures and appears on the live album box set Final VU 1971-1973.
There is more on Listening here and a few songs including this one are on Spotify here. We found the track on Follow Me Down: Vanguard's Lost Psychedelic Era 1966-70 (available in New Zealand through Border)
