Ellie Pop (1968)

Only longplayer of this Roseville/Michigan band. Not every track is a winner but the album maintains a good standard. It's mainly pop with psychedelic influences and was originally released on Mainstream Records. This korean reissue (World Psychedelia Ltd. WPC6-8489 / 2005) gives little information about the band but a few notes from guitar player Bill Long. You can hear their best song "Can't Be Love" also on the "Pepperisms" compilation.

Tracklist:
- Seven North Frederick
- Winner Loser
- Can't Be Love
- Remembering (Sunnybrook)
- Seems I've Changed
- Caught In The Rain
