The E-Types

Within the mid-’60s, this group from Salinas, CA, (near San Jose) performed a pleasant mixture of British Invasion-inspired pop/rock and roll and some garage. With prominent keyboards, three-part harmonies, and unique materials with minor-keyed shifts, they sounded something similar to a mix between your Zombies as well as the Turtles. Extremely popular of their (fairly limited) stomping grounds, they produced no effect whatsoever on the nationwide level, issuing four singles on little labels (many of them with maker Ed Cobb, who also managed the Standells as well as the Chocolate View Band). Certainly these were a guaranteeing outfit, with the capacity of providing strong original materials (the majority of which, oddly, was penned by way of a friend who wasn’t within the music group, Larry Hosford). They didn’t have sufficient time and energy to convert that guarantee into really significant work, nevertheless. They disbanded in 1967, when their thoroughly executed pop/rock and roll was falling out in clumps of style in California, and only psychedelia.
