Caleb - Baby Your Phrasing Is Bad/A Woman Of Distinction

Caleb - Baby Your Phrasing Is Bad/A Woman Of Distinction (UK 1967)

Okay, so this is some mega rare stuff we got here. It's also one of the greatest pieces of British psych ever. I bought a reissue of this 45 today, in a record store called Got To Hurry in Old Town in Sweden, which i can recommend if you happen to visit Stockholm. It's a great record store if you want to buy some 60s grooves.

As you can tell from the name, Baby Your Phrasing Is Bad has got that insanely psychedelic phasing effect that you can find on many other british late 60's psych records, such as 'Itchycoo Park' by The Small Faces and 'Pictures of Matchstick Men' by Status Quo. The song has been featured on many 60s psych complications such as 'Rubble Vol. 1 - The Psychedelic Snarl',  'Nuggets II' (Disc 2) and 'Chocolate Soup for Diabetics' (Disc 5).

The B-side, 'A Woman of Distinction', is also a great song, even if it might not is as good as 'Baby Your Phrasing Is Bad'. It is also avaliable on 'Rubble Vol. 1 - The Psychedelic Snarl'.

That the single hasn't gained more fame through the years is a mystery to me, since Caleb became a session musician later and worked with Elton John, Mick Jagger, Pete Townshend etc. under his full name, Caleb Quaye.
