Dateline 1966 - the Pacific North West of the USA - a hotbed for numerous local and regional bands following the tradition of the renowned North West Fratrock of the Kingsmen or the uncompromising Rock & Roll of The Sonicsand Wailers. Not so the United Travel Service. They were sadly overlooked at the time but are now revered for their two brilliant, killer folkadelic 45 releases 'Wind And Stone' b/w 'Drummer Of Your Mind' and 'Gypsy Eyes' b/w 'Echo Of You'. The UTS were mainly influenced by the San Francisco scene, Garage Rock and the Byrds. Their high quality repertoire written by guitarist Ben Hoff and produced by New Tweedy Brothers producerRick Keefer would have made a classic local psychedelic album if released back then. But it was not to be. Break-A-Way present for the first time, a collection of the bands rare 45s, along with four more, until now unreleased studio recordings, plus five home demos, of which four were not part of the LP version.
Additionally there is an excellent 2009 re-recording of an old track capturing again the old magic and authenticity of the group. The CD comes with a 12 page booklet including a detailed history of the band with photos from the members scrapbook. At last, here is the long overdue legacy of one of the Northwest's finest psychedelic bands.
