Great Lost Singles of the 60s: No, Seriously, I Mean It -- This One's Great

From 1967, and one of the unfairly unheralded LP masterworks of its day, please enjoy the multi-talented Stephen Friedland, AKA Brute Force, and his intestinal classic "Tapeworm of Love."

"That's mighty fine sitar playing, Mahatma..."

I should add that Mr. Force (as the New York Times would have it) was the songwriter of perhaps my favorite girl group record ever, The Chiffons' 1966 hit "Nobody Knows What's Going On in My Mind But Me," perhaps the last (and only psychedelic) flowering of the genre, and thus deserving of respect from mere mortals like you and I.
