C. A. Quintet – "Smooth As Silk" (1968)

Don’t know what to say
Feelin’ smooth as silk

The C. A. Quintet, a psychedelic band from Minneapolis, released its one and only album, Trip Thru Hell, in 1968.  The original pressing sold fewer than 500 copies.

Word about the album got around over the next twenty years, and it was released on CD in 1994.

I wouldn’t say it’s the greatest psychedelic album ever recorded, but I wouldn’t say it’s not the greatest psychedelic album ever recorded.

Here’s a Youtube video of “Smooth As Silk."  Since it was posted in January 2015, it has attracted exactly 21 views.  I'm counting on my readers to get that number up to at least a million:
