~~ One of America's greatest, most influential, and legendary cult bands, the Flamin' Groovies came out of the San Francisco area in 1965 playing greasy, bluesy, rock & roll dashed with a liberal sprinkling of British Invasion panache, in an era soon to be dominated by hippie culture and hyperextended raga-rock freakouts. Caught in a double bind of playing the wrong kind of music at the wrong time (as well as not looking the part), the Groovies were almost completely forgotten as the Fillmore/Avalon Ballroom scenes, dominated by the Dead, the Jefferson Airplane, et al., rendered them anachronistic. The plain truth, however, was that despite not being in tune with the zeitgeist, the Groovies made great music, and managed to sustain a career that lasted for over two decades.

What made the Groovies such a formidable band was the double dynamite supplied by guitarist Cyril Jordan and singer/wildman Roy A. Loney. Together they formed an uneasy partnership that guided the band through its most fertile period, from 1968-1971.

Supersnazz, according to group leader Roy Loney, was to be "the Flamin Groovies' Sgt. Pepper"--a chance to blow out the doors of a major label studio with songs running the gamut from the decadence of "The First One's Free" and "Love Have Mercy" to the exotica of "Bam Balam," the harmonies of "A Part From That" and the Beatles-like shimmer of "Laurie Did It." Supersnazz is a Groovie grab-bag from the Golden Era of San Fran Rock, circa 1969
