|The Velvett Fogg employ tom toms, weird electronics, and late sixties psych guitar tones (it is 1969, after all).|
Picks: Telstar '69
Track by Track Review
This is not Mel Torme, the Velvet Fog. This is the late sixties UK heavy psych-prog band. They issued but one album and a single, before fading into a well deserved obscurity. The oddity here is their inclusion of a bizarre version of the Joe Meek classic "Telstar," made famous by the Tornados.
