Home / Biography / Bees



The Bees’ “Voices Green and Crimson” is among the weirdest one-shot obscurities from the 1960s garage scene, developing within the Liverpool label in Covina, CA in Oct 1966. The verses had been regular two-chord sub-Rolling Rocks rants. The psychedelic touch was added not only from the florid and deranged lyrics, but from the choruses, where in fact the tune vanished, the drums increased, as well as the scrawling guitars produced ascending shards of sound. The solitary, encased inside a crudely designed picture sleeve that’s probably one of the most desired collectibles from the garage area era, did nothing at all commercially. Nevertheless, it became a garage area favorite following its addition on Pebbles Vol. 3, and got onto the Nuggets package set a long time later on. The “Voices Green and Crimson” Bees are unrelated towards the Bees who produced several folk-rock singles in 1965 for Mira and Mirwood.
