More Parchment Farm

The Echoplex was a delay effect that utilized a tape loop.  Parchment Farm's keyboard player, Gary Reed, attached one to his Farfisa organ for some spacey effects!  Here's the Wikipedia entry, in case you're really interested in a technical explanation of the
Echoplex:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echoplex.

This song (originally done by The Doors) is an example of how the Echoplex could be used to stretch a 2-minute song to more than 6 minutes!

The photos were shot at Corn's Lake in Columbia, Missouri, in 1970 by Jane Fitzpatrick (now Jane Watermann) on an Instamatic camera.

    Great sounding group. Similar to a band I saw in Troy, MO in the early 70's called George Perkins and the Silver Fox. Any connection?
