The long-running mystery of the last "real" Seeds line-up which did the two MGM 45s in 1970 was finally cleared up via Jeff Jarema's liner notes for the double 45 reissue recently. In case you missed it, Sky Saxon and Daryl Hooper recruited a completely new band with no ties to the various '68-69 players. The new guys were a Pasadena band known as Solid Mist who jumped aboard not knowing where the Saxon magic might take them, although the end result was limited to a number of live gigs and those two 45s. I refer to the reissue 7-inch and my indepth Sky Saxon page for details.
The main purpose of this post is to announce that I now own a copy of "Did He Die", the 2nd MGM 45 and one which I doubted I would be able to score, since it's as rare as some Back From The Grave discs! It landed here sounding more intense than any repros, as 45s tend to do. I also noted that "Love In A Summer Basket" was the designated airplay pick.
The other thing I wanted to share was the discovery (by Richard MJ of Flashback), finally, of a period media reference to this last Seeds line-up including band member names. The reason no one has utilized this info before is because it appeared only in an obscure publication called Entertainment World, which had a few issues around 1970. This brief news item would have been a real scoop a few years ago, and is still worth passing on today.
