what's goin' on over here at the true vine 1123 W 36th St Baltimore MD 21211
 Maypole - The Real  (Anopheles)  LP  $19
Recoreded in 1970 and released a year later on the same label the released Shocking Blue's "Venus," if memory serves, Baltimore's Maypole made one of the only truly good vintage psyche LPs from our little city.  Reissued by the same folks that pressed the Brigman Jungle Rot LP, if that tells you anything; it stretches out and digs in.
