When scanning collector magazines, you'll often come across listings for albums by obscure psychedelic bands such as Top Drawer, commanding ridiculously high prices merely because they're very rare. And in most cases, just because they're very rare doesn't mean you have to pay those prices, or even feel like you're missing much. Top Drawer, a young Kentucky band whose generic bluesy guitar riffing, naively overambitious lyrics, and reliance upon hard rock cliches screamed 1969-1970, made one of those rare-but-not-good records. Which didn't stop it from getting reissued in the 1980s.
