Featuring J.J. Cale! Totally Captures the Era’s Heady Sense of Excitement & Inspiration!
The Leathercoated Minds’ 1967 release A Trip Down the Sunset Strip is a
one-of-a-kind artifact of the psychedelic era. Originally conceived as an
exploitation item, it nonetheless emerged as an enduring musical statement,
thanks to the talents of those involved, particularly then-unknown Oklahoma-bred
guitarist J.J. Cale.
As its title suggests, A Trip Down the Sunset Strip was originally concocted by
noted pop producer Snuff Garrett (known for his hitmaking ‘60s work with the
likes of Bobby Vee, Cher and Gary Lewis and the Playboys) to tap into the wave
of publicity that surrounded the Sunset Strip and the Hollywood club scene at
the time. For the project, Garrett assigned Cale to cut a set of instrumental
versions of then-recent psychedelic hits, which were augmented with four Cale
originals. It totally captures the era’s heady sense of excitement and
The visionary talents of Cale virtually assured that A Trip Down the Sunset
Strip would transcend its humble origins, becoming an increasingly rare
collectible as its reputation grew. Now back in its original LP configuration,
our release has been mastered from Viva Records’ original mono tapes, pressed on
heavy-duty 180-gram vinyl and is available in a limited edition of 1000 copies!
