V/A - Fifth Pipe Dream


V/A - Fifth Pipe Dream

Classic compilation of Matthew Katz controlled bands from S.F. in the sixties, cool psych from ‘It's a Beautiful Day’, ‘Indian Pudding & Pipe’, ‘Black Swan’ and ‘Tripsichord Musicbox’.

I thought I'd never find this one! I first heard of Tripsichord Music Box on a local college radio station some 20 years ago and they mentioned this comp. I am really looking forward to hearing the rest of it. Thanks a lot for the share.

Peace and blessings.

My older brother, Oliver Mckinney, was the keyboard player for Tripsichord. I was lucky to be in S.F. Dec. '67 and spent three days in the recording studio while they cut these tracks. I spent years tracking down the remaining members of the band. The Drummer,Randy, passed away a few years ago. He was still drumming and played a number of gigs with Moby Grape. David has kept active recording and playing as has Frank, who still plays regularly in So.Cal. My brother played for years in all sort of bar bands bringing home a paycheck and keeping the wolf from the door. He became a computer graphics designer at a college in NW Florida and is still married to his bride from '66. Their son plays in a number of bands locally, a truly gifted guitarist! I had the time of my life in the studio in SF with Tripsichord, I had known them all from their days as The Now and earlier The Ban. They stayed at our home many times while on the road between gigs in So. Cal. in the mid 60's.
