The Most Awesome Band You Never Heard Of

It was the Summer of Love, 1967 in San Francisco. A band called "Ace of Cups" hit the scene. They are credited as San Francisco's first all female rock band. They were amazing! Jimi Hendrix was quoted as saying, “I HEARD SOME GROOVY SOUNDS LAST TIME IN THE STATES, LIKE THIS GIRL GROUP, ACE OF CUPS, WHO WRITE THEIR OWN SONGS AND THE LEAD GUITARIST IS, HELL, REALLY GREAT." So why have you never heard of them? They never got signed to a record deal. If you were not part of the SF music scene back then, you most likely have never heard of them.
Now, more that 50 years after their amazing debut in the summer of love, they have recorded their first album, called "Ace of Cups." I have to say it is AMAZING! These ladies sound just as fresh as they did back in the 60s
San Fransisco's public TV station, KQED recently did a 7 minute expose on the band. Enjoy:
