Numero Group: By The Numbers

White Eyes… Unseen, No Longer.

Hailing from The Show-Me State, White Eyes lugged their heavy psych and harmony-clad ballads across the Midwest, honing their live set wherever audiences were abundant. Whether it be the famed Cowtown Ballroom in Kansas City or the nearest American Legion, the quintet of long-haired bohemians loaded a double bass drum set, a wall of Marshall amplifiers, and a array of acoustic guitars into their 1953 Cadillac hearse to deliver their impeccable stage show across the plains.

Despite years of relentless gigging, White Eyes never caught their break. This previously unissued LP, recorded between the fall of 1969 and 1970, was originally intended as a demo for talent buyers and industry prospectors. Well-crafted arrangements and pro-sounding production make this an exceptional piece of lost psychedelic pop.

Thanks to Numero, Ken & Blake bringing the hopes and dreams from 45 years ago to people all over the world. The average age of the band was barely 19 when this demo was done. Streetcar Love seems to be one of the more popular songs on the LP and we zipped it up early to go ahead and track another song and come back and add vocals and guitar leads fate took us to KC and we opened the Cowtown Ballroom with the Flying Burrito Brothers the packed up and moved to KC….Please give a listen and pass the word about White Eyes. All original song with the exception of one Lennon/McCartney track that most people haven’t heard.
Thanks to Mark and Tom from Titan for asking me down to the radio studio to share……………..
