Johnny Farfisa - The Sky is Falling (9/10)

Andy Cahan is a keyboardist/producer who has been music director for classic ‘60s act The Turtles as well as sideman and arranger for legends like Graham Bond, Dr. John, Chuck Berry and Harry Nilsson. This interesting compilation highlights his begin- nings from the mid to late ‘60s when, as Johnny Farfisa, he was a member of three successful New York combos: The Individuals, The Tokays and Euphorian Railway. It is garage rock at its primitive finest, with some strong originals, like the Vanilla Fudge-fla- vored “Nothing and No One,” the ultra-soulful “The Sky is Falling” and the Yardbirds-like “She Showed Me” leading the pack.

Score: 9 out of 10
