One of the ’60s’ defining excesses — and there were [i]many[/i] — comes in the form of the bands’ names: Chocolate Watchband. Strawberry Alarm Clock. Ultimate Spinach. But make no mistake: many of these goofy-monikered musicians turn out some awe-inspiring songs. Brit blues-rockers Spooky Tooth split the difference between Traffic’s soft-focus hallucinations and Led Zeppelin’s hard-edged crunch in their heavy-as-Dostoyevsky cover of “I Am the Walrus.” The Nazz, led by then-future superstar Todd Rundgren, opens up “Open My Eyes” with an organ riff lifted from the Who’s “I Can’t Explain,” then spins into a swirly maelstrom of phase-shifted proto-power-pop. And perhaps the era’s ultimate fusion of art and rock — how many [i]other[/i] bands can claim a cover designed by Andy Warhol? — the Velvet Underground ride roughshod over a leather-jacket-tough track where boogie-woogie meets the blues somewhere down a dark alley in “White Light/White Heat.”
