The Fraternity Of Man issued their first, self-titled LP with a supporting single ('Don't Bogart Me' b/w 'Wispy Paisley Skies') in 1968. The record was produced by the legendary Tom Wilson (Bob Dylan, Velvet Underground, etc.) and as a side note, Kim Fowley also made a guest appearance. Both songs on the 45 are excellent with the A-side being a strung-out country-western type ditty, openly touting the use of marijuana. Because of the song's lyrical content, it didn't get any airplay at the time, but about a year later was spotlighted in the hit film 'Easy Rider' and its huge selling soundtrack. This break gave the band some much needed national attention and the opportunity to record a follow up LP on Dot Records.
