Get Hip Archive Series (GHAS-9)

Originally released by Dove Recordings in 1967 and reissued on Get Hip Archive Series in 1995, this essential 45 is available once again!

The Calico Wall’s music transcended their short-lived rise in 1967 and defined the term “psychedelic” in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The band’s definitive single “I’m a Living Sickness,” with its ominous organ intro, fuzz-drenched tremolo guitar, snarling vocals and intense lyrics, had only seen the light of day as a limited bootleg pressing—until now.

Get Hip Archive Series has finally reissued this classic rarity, long considered the holy grail of 1960s Garage-Psych, with the highest possible sound quality.

Also included is the original instrumental track to the acid-dripping “Flight Reaction.”
