ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 1965, \"The Wildflower\" began at California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland with Stephen Ehret on rhythm guitar, Tom Ellis on drums, John Jennings on bass, Teddy Schneider played percussion, Michael Brown played lead guitar, and the whole band sang. Stephen wrote the songs for the band and also collaborated with poets, Michael McClure and Michael McCausland. The band was soon playing venues all around the Bay Area and was one of the original psychedelic 60s groups developing the San Francisco Sound that reached maturity during the Summer of Love.
They played both the Fillmore and Avalon Ballrooms and toured extensively. Tom left to finish his education and Larry Duncan took over drums until his return. Teddy left the band before a tour back East. Following that, \"The Wildflower\" toured Canada with \"The Youngbloods\" and recorded with producer Jerry Corbitt. Just when it seemed their commercial success was secure, they disbanded.
Michael Brown became a cast member in Hair. Stephen built a recording studio at the legendary Project One in S.F., documented in the book: How to Build a Recording Studio. And it was there that the newly reunited Wildflower with the addition of Roger Cruz of Hair fame, made the \"unplugged\" recordings you can hear on the website.
Featured in movies and documentaries about the S.F. rock scene and immortalized in psychedelic poster art, the Wildflower remains a part of the colorful tapestry that was the magic of the sixties.
In September of 2008, the Wildflower releases it\'s first full CD of songs they used to play on the stages of The Fillmore Auditorium, Avalon Ballroom, Red Dog Saloon, etc., but never recorded. With the addition of Felix Bannon on lead guitar and Robert South on keyboards, the Wildflower; John Jennings, Michael Brown Tom Ellis and Stephen Ehret, presents \"40 Years in the Blink of an Eye\".
