My Group and Me (Raga and the Talas)

5 SEPTEMBER 1966


One-off studio band Raga and the Talas released their only single - 'My Group and Me' during September 1966. It went nowhere (chartwise) but is still two minutes of rather enjoyable, west-coast chimey garage guitars and la-la-la harmonies. This was actually written and produced by Jackie de Shannon, and reportedly featured her younger brother. Randy Myers. Not much else is known about this record, but it did turn up of volume 10 of the excellent 'Pebbles' compilation series of '60s garage and psychedelic obscurities.

Ragas and Talas was the name of 1964 album from Ravi Shankar.
