The Present Day Pachuco Refuses to Die

Just a little followup to yesterday's item about Eddie James (Olmos) and Pacific Ocean -- from their sole (1968) album, here's the Olmos original "My Shrink."

It's a pretty good song, actually, but I think ultimately it (and the rest of the album) sounds just like every Hollywood hippie band you saw/heard in the club/party scene of any youth-oriented movie/TV show made in America between 1966-69.

Incidentally, I love that photo of the band if for no other reason than the fact that the two guys on either side of Olmos look rather eerily like members of Shoes.
