Haymarket Riot - Trip on Out / Something Else (single). 1968 USA

Wow. Going through these obscure psych era US singles can be revelatory. So it turns out Haymarket Riot are from Enid, Oklahoma. Now there's the center of the psychedelic universe eh? My old man was in the laundry business, and one of his top clients was in Enid, so I went there a lot more than your average big city kid. I'll just put it this way - psychedelic is not the first thing one thinks of when in Enid. 'Trip on Out' is great - very much in the spirit of the era. 'Something Else' kind of blows honestly, but I can understand why they would play two entirely different styles. They must have gotten plenty of odd looks for sure.

You can find 'Trip on Out' on multiple comps. I heard it on YouTube
