Fuzz, Acid and Flowers, by Vernon Joynson, is a book comprising "an encyclopaedic guide to U.S. rock and pop from the early-60s to mid-70s covering garage, psychedelic and hippie rock." At one time, the entire resource was online.

The original site went offline some time in 2005. The cover below is from the original U.K. print edition; this reconstructed entry is from the online edition. A revised version of the book is currently available, published by Borderline Productions.

1 The Man / Song Of The Traveller (Swan S-4166) 1963

Significant for containing pre-Orpheus members Jack McKennes and Eric Gulliksen, this is the group referred to in the liner notes for The Best Of Orpheus retrospective CD as The Wanderers. A tribute to the late JFK, the record was produced by Tom Zagryn and Eric Gulliksen, and recorded in the cellar of a fraternity house on a Webcor tape recorder. Eric recalls: "As we already had a relationship with the Swan label via The Blue Echoes, we trotted it down to Philadelphia and Swan jumped on it thinking they would make a bundle. However, no Kennedy records made it in the US; people (and rightly so) just didn't want to see someone make money from the tragedy of JFK's death. For many years, though, Tom and I received air play royalties (in small amounts) from the four corners of the earth".
