Blair 1523

Under Appreciated

BLAIR 1523
The Outcasts’ last single, “1523 Blair” (released in January 1967) took the band in a different direction and is a nearly unique psychedelic rock song in that it is played at a furious pace.  The song inspired the name of a future entry in the Under-Appreciated Rock Bands, a marvelous British band who released one album as Blair 1523.

When I first looked up the Liquid Faeries album, Eggshells & Snake Leaves on the Internet, nothing helpful was coming up; so I entered the band name and album name together.  Amazingly, I got only about 20 hits on Google – by contrast, I got 18,100 hits for past UARB Blair 1523, and they are plenty obscure as well.  I suppose I spelled something wrong, because later on, I had hundreds of hits.
