Cannabis - Joint Effort 
Oh the clever pun, especially as this band and their single album are more rock mainstream than psychedelic, and only one song on the album refers explicitly to marijuana - I Can't Roll. It is bathed mainly in West Coast harmony, with the occasional echo of The Hollies, and perhaps The Byrds. It is also largely organ/keyboards driven. So the cover and title are a collective smokescreen and what plays within is quite tame, if inoffensively so. There are some strong bass lines, but other efforts are wearing L plates. I'm still searching for that strong if lesser known C and this isn't filling the Cup.
