The Explosive

Here's an interesting bit of pop psychedelia from 1969: A 45 by a band called The Explosive put out on the President Records label (who put out quite bit of great and interesting psychedelic / 60s/70s pop and, eventually, disco).  The A-side is "(Who Planted Thorns In) Miss Alice's Garden" with a B-side with the not exactly enticing title "I Get My Kicks From Living" (though it is a good song).  This particular 45 is notable to me because of how much the intro to "Miss Alice's Garden" is absolutely begging to be sampled.  It's a fantastic song all around, with a sort of almost reggae vibe, but that intro (which pops up as the intro to the verses throughout the song) needs to be sampled by someone; I could easily see a song built around it.  I'm sure these songs have ended up on one of the countless psych compilations at some point, but here it is for you to download from the 45.
