MC2 (MC2+, MC Squared) released four superb pop-psych 45's for Reprise and recorded an album that remained in the vault for over 30 years (recently put out on CD by band guitarist Randy Sterling). They also providing the title song for the film The First Time.
One of the great lost (and now thankfully re-discovered!) pop-psych bands of the 60s. Surely a band in need of the full Sundazed treatment, with album, singles and outtakes!!
This 45, their 1st, features strings by Ron Elliot and suprisingly has remained uncomped.
Flip is an Instrumental of the top side.

Jangly Beat from Phoenix, Arizona.
Apparently quite a prolific band, although this 45 is the best of the bunch.
For the full story on this band check out Ben Chaput's excellent Voyages Into Folk-Rock Vol.2
John Fred and the Playboy Band - Outta My Head (Paula 247. 1966)
John Fred and the Playboy Band - Hey Hey Bunny (Paula 294. 1968)
There were plenty of cool garage & psych 45s on Paula, isnt it about time there was a decent retrospective of this label!
