Oh man, I can smell the patchouli.
That was fun; I never heard of them before. Where they from?
Love the flower stickers on the bass.
All I wanna do is rock!

Just two tracks on this album, one on each side. When I saw the Youtubeclip in this topic I put it on, but it doesn't sound like it did at a party I don't remember...

Wasn't "My friend Jack" banned for it's direct LSD references? Haven't heard that song in 25 years, what a classic :D

The Smoke were 'big in Germany' just like Creation were. Both of these British bands had albums out in Germany but only singles in the UK. The Smoke also recorded and issued records as The Shots and a few other aliases. As I recall they also served as a house band for the Morgan Bluetown record label, backing many of their artists on records and contributing their songwriting skills. A very cool band.
