The Chocolate Watchband - Inner Mystiquedotdotdot
artworkInner Mystique was easily half recorded without the band in attendance. In fact, if you added up all of their tracks from the three albums and singles, you'd not have enough material for two albums if you only used true Chocolate Watchband tracks. Ed Cobb, Bill Cooper, and Richie Podolor were the Watchband in absentia.
Picks: Voyage Of The Trieste, Inner Mystique

Track by Track Review

Voyage Of The Trieste dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This airy and psychedelic instro was recorded without benefit of the Chocolate Watchband's presence. It is melodic and unusual, merging flute and fuzz. It was written by Ed Cobb.

Inner Mystique dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This, the title track, is spacie and psyched out. It is a long and twisted journey down a road not traveled by the Chocolate Watchband, but performed by Ed Cobb, Bill Cooper and Richie Podolor. It serves as part two of Voyage Of The Trieste.
