Rich Hopkins & Barry 'The Fish' Melton - Duel in the Desert (repost)

Rich Hopkins & Barry 'The Fish' Melton - Duel in the Desert - 2007
Country Joe McDonald and his partner "the fish" (also known in real life as Barry Melton) helped put the word "psychedelic" into mainstream American speech during the 60's and 70's with several of the best rock and roll albums to ever come out of the San Francisco bay area.

Along with admitted major "Fish" fan, guitarist/vocalist Rich Hopkins, Melton can be now be heard on DUEL IN THE DESERT, an import CD from Taxim Records in Germany. Melton and Hopkins are in fine form with a disc full of songs written by Hopkins, Melton, Melton and Hopkins, Chuck Berry and even a couple of folk and blues items from the Public Domain. Rounding out the group are Nick Augustine on Bass Guitar and Tom Larkin on Drums.

01. Alabama Bound (Publ. Domain, arr. Hopkins)
02. I've Seen the World from Your Eyes (Hopkins)
03. Please Forgive Me (Melton)
04. Without You (Hopkins) 5:23
