Lumbee – Overdose (1970)

This 1969 psychedelic album promoted the use of drugs by including a board game insert, complete with play money & instructions that started with the prerequisite “no one who intends to stay straight may play,” and the strategy of the game was to start “dealerships” to sell drugs. Long before Cheech & Chong graced the airwaves with their hippie/drug humor, Lumbee beat them by 3 years, with this hard-edged, fuzzed-out, freaked-out music. Contains the songs “People Get Ready (You Gotta Be Stoned)” & “Veronica High”.

Sought after late ’60’s heavy acid rock gem that features a cover featuring young kids sucking on hookahs ! The original album came with a drug dealing game. The album stands up well alongside albums such as Blue Cheers later recordings, Grand Funk, Damnation etc. Hard, heavy and wholesome.

    Hi!
    I quite like the look of this blog… very promising since it covers an era I enjoy, so I look forward to watching its progress. I have put a link to this blog from mine which is mainly based on the 1960s and at present features many rare videos.

    Best of luck with this blog!
