This week’s Mad Men episode “A Tale Of Two Cities” features two Fervor Vintage Masters tracks, each a spectacularly underground Psych Rock gem from the year 1967.

One of them is the moody, Zombies-esque Found Love, by the Fly Bi-Nights, which is available on the Fervor Records release Cult Hits of the 1960’s Vol. 1

The other one is a Sunshine Pop harmony-laden tune by Leaves Of Grass, called All This Is Right.  It was recorded and released in 1967, but has been out of print for some time.  It is slated for a Fervor Records re-issue release later this year.

Tune in to AMC this Sunday, June 2nd for a sneak-peek of the studio treasures in Mad Men ep610.

The Steam Machine Gets Back To The Westside In Mad Men ep606

Mad Men Season 6Things are heating up on Mad Men, and The Steam Machine is on the scene in this week’s episode, “For Immediate Release” (ep606).

Get Back To The Westside, a 1968 recording by the popular UK artists offers the bouncy, McCartney-esque flavor of the late British Invasion era.  Though the Steam Machine was more ‘underground’ according to American audiences, they were huge in their neck of the woods, as well as Japan.

If you happened to see a film last year called Seeking A Friend For The End of the World with Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, you may have heard another song by The Steam Machine (I’m Going Home To Sacramento).

This particular cut is commercially available, nestled deep in a robust compilation of Vintage Pop music, the Fervor Records release Cult Hits of the 1960’s, Vol. 2The Steam Machine - Sacramento (Portada)

Tune in this Sunday May 5th to AMC to hear Get Back To The Westside by Fervor Records Vintage Masters, The Steam Machine.
