A Beatles-influenced combo from Santa Barbara,  who started life as The Vandells. Their compilation appearances have given them  a cult following making it impossible to acquire any of their 45s at realistic  prices. Their first 45 consists of two folk rock ballads, whilst the second  charted locally. Shortly afterwards Rick Morinini left the band, being replaced  by the drummer from Ernie and The Emperors, in time for The Third Eye - a  stand-out raga piece. Their fourth and final 45 also includes some great guitar  work.
Compilation appearances have included: What Am I Going To Do on Nuggets  Box (4-CD); She's Gone and What Am I Going To Do on Pebbles Vol. 2 (CD) and  Pebbles, Vol. 2 (LP); She's Not Just Anybody on Pebbles, Vol. 7 (LP) and Pebbles  Vol. 8 (CD); Your Love on Sixties Rebellion, Vol. 6 (LP & CD); The Third Eye  on Highs In The Mid Sixties, Vol. 20 (LP) and 30 Seconds Before The Calico Wall  (CD); People Ask Me Why and I Could Be Happy on The Cicadelic 60's, Vol. 2  (LP).
The great news is that you can have their complete recorded output on  one disc. After many years seeking out and talking to many of the band members,  Mike Markesich has been able to piece together their story on this absolutely  essential release.
Few modern bands have been brave enough to attempt to  cover Dovers' songs, given the very high esteem in which they're held. So hats  off to Buffalo, New York's Mystic Eyes for attempting She's Gone (1997 45 on Get  Hip GH-188). Buy it yourself so you can judge whether they've succeeded in doing  it justice.
(Max Waller / Craig Morrison)
