Pugsley Munion - Just Like You Just Like You
Psych New - LP SLP 1001 J&S
Factory Sealed 1970 Original On This New York Label. Pristine Copy Of A Rare Obscurity. “They Took 'Pugsley' From A Street Sign Outside New York, While 'Munion' Was The Name Of A Local Cop Who Gave The Band's Road Crew Dirty Looks Following A Gig In A Local Donut Shot. They Put The Two Words Together Originally As A Joke Name To Use For A Single Gig, But The Name Stuck. In Mid 1970, Pugsley Munion Began The Two Days Of Recording At Bell Sound Studios In New York City They Had Booked For Their First Album. Live, They Played As An Organ/Bass Pedal, Guitar, And Drum Trio, But They Decided To Use Bass Guitar In The Studio To Get A Better Sound. As They Laid Down The Tracks, The Band Experimented With Different Bass Parts With The Intention Of Going Back In During A Later Session To Complete Or Replace Them. Rough Mixes Were Prepared Of The Songs After The Two Days, And Trio Assumed They Would Go Back Into The Studio To Overdub The Bass Tracks And Polish Up The Vocals. To Their Surprise, However, The Record Company Released The Album In Its Unfinished Form, Without The Original Artwork Selected By The Band And With Incorrect Liner Notes. The Title Of The Album Had Been Altered As Well To Just Like You, After The Song Released As The First Single. Pugsley Munion Tried Unsuccessfully To Stop The Album's Release. In Spite Of The Record Label's Disingenuous Treatment Of The Band, The Album Did Get Some Airplay, But Shortly After Its Release, Schuller Was Drafted, Bringing A Halt To The Project. His Stint In The Navy Was Short, However, For Medical Reasons, And He Rejoined The Band, Which Had Added A Bass Player And A Vocalist In His Absence. They Played Throughout The Next Couple Years In Local Clubs And Developed A Solid Following But Never Again Recorded As A Unit, Although Each Member Went On To Experience Success As Studio Players.” Stanton Swihart, AMG.... more details
