The Horde 1967 (JCP 201)
  [no sleeve; c25p]
The previously undocumented garage era album by the Horde is perhaps the most interesting discovery in the past couple of years. The sleeveless demo LP appeared
 on JCP, a label known for a couple of excellent garage 45s. The Horde album has the usual list of cover versions, but also at least two excellent band originals, and a link to the band's website brought out more fine music, cutting edge pre-Sgt Pepper shit in the Yardbirds or Baroques vein. The eBay auction was appropriately feverish and the rekkid ended up selling for $1700. A genuine discovery, the band were students at Duke University in NC. [PL]

Top class sleuth & Acid Archives correspondent Jack F adds that: "...The Horde was put together by local producer J. Cash as a back up group for a chick singer named Elisabeth Locke. The same guy went on to break Oliver of "Good Morning Starshine" fame. The Horde LP was a demo press, which the band estimates to be around 25 copies. They did it as a tossed off session just for fun as they were already in tune with each other for the Locke sessions, and all shared a love for the Blues Project and rock and roll hijinks. A year later they cut a 4-song acetate in a more Dylan oriented vein, but disbanded shortly after that. Two members of the Horde went on to play for 7 years in the Oosik Music Revue and one member still resides in Alaska where he runs a celebrated local night club."
