I just got on itunes, The 1910 Fruitgum Co. "Hard Ride" (1969 on Buddah) that went nowhere on the Billboard Top 200 Album Charts because it did not chart. On the cover are the "Hell's Angels" with their motorcycles!! The song "The Train" (45 single) only went to # 57 in October of 1969 which the MONO 45 version has the "choo choos" while the album version does not have it. That group did that song on John Byner's "Somethin' Else" in early 1970 & can be found on YouTube riding the train!! The song "Don't Have To Run And Hide" kicks things off with the horn section & somehow the lead singer is barely heard in the mix because of the horns. The song "Beggars Epitath" reminds me of Blood, Sweat & Tears!! The songs "Eulogy" & "Selub" has a Janis Joplin soundalike which is 9 minutes!! The song "All These Things" has 2 singers, one on the left & one on the right speaker & adds a bell at the end of the song!! The song "Creations Of Simon" is the sequel to the song "Simon Says" (which was their biggest hit)!! The song "Collections Of Thoughts" has a sexy guitar vibe to the song in which a couple is whispering to each other & saying "Where do I start?" The songs "In The Beginning" & "The Thing" is a weird & wild instrumental going back & fourth using sound effects & horns!! The last song "Togetherly Alone (5 Movements)" (on side 2) reminds me of Chicago's "III" (from 1971) which they did the songs "Man Vs. Man" & "The End" (both instrumentals) which closes Side 4!! Has anyone listened or bought the album back then & what are your thoughts?? Bought the used album in Flint, Michigan in March of 1988 at a used record store BUT the album has some scratches!! The itunes download sounds great which runs 40:16 in playing time BUT does NOT have the MONO version of "The Train" which is missing!! Yes indeed, The 1910 Fruitgum Company still tours across the U.S. doing their songs & some oldies!!
