Song of the Week - Garden of Earthly Delights by The United States of America

My daughter brought this CD home from the library. Classic psychedelia from 1968. This was the kind of stuff you heard on 'underground' FM radio stations of the day, which were the alternative to Top 40 AM radio. I remember this song and several others on the CD but I have no recollection of the band itself. According to Wikipedia, the album sold poorly and the band broke up soon after release. And no, they have no relation to the 1990s band The Presidents of the United States of America.

Not the best song I've ever heard. One interesting thing. The stereo separation on the recording is great! Even on my cheap Altec Lansings it sounded as if the drums were two feet to the right of the right side speaker. Or maybe I'm hallucinating.
