10) Merrell Fankhauser and H.M.S. Bounty “Girl (I’m Waiting for You)”

Of the West Coast pop-psych album from which I drew this song, Fankhauser himself says that it is “one of the rare lost psychedelic gems of the late 60’s.” Presumptuous, but I agree!

Dana Gillespie, later to become a prolific blues singer, was discovered by Donovan. He wrote this smoking song and it was produced by Jimmy Page.
