They struck both chords and pose well, especially with rhythm-guitarist Glynn Bell's blond mophead making him the spitting image of Brian Jones and no doubt upping his groupie cachet a few notches. Released in early but containing the band's three singles, Somewhere Outside skirts the cusp of '66 r'n'b and '67 psychedelia. Other tracks, such as the revved-up 'She Ain't No Use to Me' and the searing 'Just in Case You Wonder', their third single, capture on vinyl the hegemony of cool the Ducklings had over the Yorkville scene in Toronto at the time.
Still other tracks, like the Rascalesque, harmonica-tinged 'Not for Long', add a quieter balance, while the closer 'Windy City Noise at the North End ', an acid-blues rave-up, echoes Paul Butterfield's excursions of the same year. December 10, at pm. Search for:. Soooo many years ago. It was the first psychedelic album ever recorded. The album sold well in the Toronto area, but due to a lack of national distribution the band failed to break out across the rest of the country.
It wasn't until many years later, after the band broke up, that the album became a collector's item, and original pressings of Somewhere Outside on the Yorktown label fetched hundreds of dollars among collectors. The popularity of the album has led to it being bootlegged in many European countries over the years, but most versions suffer from poor sound. This legitimate reissue, complete with the original album graphics, by Unidisc has been digitally mastered for superb sound quality and is available at a budget price.
