January Tyme - First Time From Memphis (1970)

The January Tyme was a bit late on the scene and their sound was pretty similar to the Jefferson Airplane. What makes this an enjoyable listen is the fact that they were competent musicians (OK, this should not be necessarily a question of quality), they had the skills to write good songs and they had a good female lead singer. Their sole platter was reissued by Akarma (Akarma AK 030 / 1998).

Tracklist:
- Rainy Day Feeling
- The Music
- Sleepy Time Baby
- Ancient Babylon
