Paupers - Dig Deep (1966-68)
The Paupers were originally formed as the Spats in 1965 by lead guitarist Chuck Beale, bassist Denny Gerrard, guitarist Bill Misener and vocalist Skip Prokop. In 1966, Adam Mitchell replaced Misener and in 1968 bassist Brad Cambell joined the band after Gerrard departed. After two albums recorded in the late '60s, Magic People and Ellis Island, the Paupers broke up in 1969. Adam Mitchell went on to release a solo record in 1979, Redhead in Trouble, for Warner Bros..
This Dig Deep CD features very unique melodies and harmonies and songwriting. The Paupers utilized synchronized drumming patterns where 3 out of the 4 members of the band played percussion behind melodic, psychedelic guitar lines.

This cd is a collection of their two albums plus some unreleased tracks. The arrangements and songs are often breathtaking in their simplicity and breadth of influences: folk, folk-rock,psychedelia, three drum set percussion episodes and even koto! Like Buffalo Springfield, they just didnt stick around long enough for the masses to know they existed.This is one great document of much that was vibrant in popular music during 1967-68.
