The Bosom Blues Band

From: Richmond, VA, USA

A psychedelic-blues band, the Bosom Blues Band were lead by Larry McCullough (vocals, guitar). McCullough was a local folkie who joined a band called the Soothsayers in 1966, a local combo that was influenced by the British beat boom. The group also consisted of Allen Gay (guitar), Duck Baker (guitar), Harold Grieg (bass), and Dickie Parrish (drums). McCullough introduced the band members to the original American R&B records that they had been inspired by. The band formed a sound inspired by traditional blues and contemporary rock and roll. Lynn Anderson would replace Parrish and it wasn’t long before Baker left himself. After Baker left, the band changed their name to the Bosom Blues Band and recorded an LP’s worth of material in 1967. In 2003, the long overdue release of “Hippie Queen” appeared on the Aliens, Psychos & Wild Things series.
