The Maze

An obscure San Francisco-area group that cut one incredibly rare album in 1968, Armageddon (recorded at Leo Kulka’s Golden State Recorders, and issued in MTA), which is extremely valued in a few collector circles. In fact, they don’t really rank as an extremely impressive find, actually epitomizing a number of the period’s least long lasting excesses. They originally documented beneath the name Stonehenge, with a lady vocalist, before presuming their even more familiar name, and left out a great deal more than an album’s well worth of tracks, a few of which resulted in around the 1995 Sundazed Compact disc reissue of Armageddon. Their all-original materials emphasized heavy body organ, lengthy, drawn-out fuzzy acoustic guitar solos, despondent stoned vocals, and minor-key melodies, relatively in the mildew of Iron Butterfly, though much less bombastic. Another consider of “Whispering Shadows,” compiled by Wayne Gardner — who made up basically two from the ten tunes on Armageddon, fellow users J. Jensen, C. Boyd, and Richard Eittreim dividing two tunes between your three of these — was included on Equipment Fab’s 1997 Psychedelic Crown Jewels, Vol. 1.
