BLOW MY MIND! -THE DORE, ERA, MIRA PUNK & PSYCH LEGACY- COMP CDBIG BEAT
Liners by Alec Palao. Three of the quirkier imprints from Hollywood's heyday in the mid-1960s were the record labels Dor, Era and Mira. Like most seasoned indie producers in that epoch, their owners Lew Bedell, Herb Newman and Randy Wood struggled to get to grips with the onslaught of rock'n'roll activity that followed in the wake of the British Invasion.
But amongst each company's catalogue of R&B, pop schlock and novelty discs were a number of outstanding garage and proto-psych 7" that today are sought-after collectors' items.
