Product Description:

Country Joe & The Fish: Joe McDonald, Barry Melton, David Cohen, Bruce Barthol, Chicken Hirsh.
A linchpin release in 1967, this album defined the genre known as acid-rock. Led by former folk musician Joe McDonald, the quintet combines engaging melodies with sharp, satirical lyrics encompassing different facets of the counterculture--drugs ("Bass Strings"), sex ("Porpoise Mouth"), and politics ("Superbird")--while the group contributes exquisite, subtle support. Guitarist Barry Melton brings shimmering majesty to the instrument, cutting through the verse with mercurial insight and soloing to perfection. The quiet power of this album continues to enthrall those willing to enter its strange but friendly world.
