This group was originally from Colorado, and their one and only album is a very good underrated psychedelic classic, recorded back in 1968 in Los Angeles. The lone self-titled album of the band Dragonfly is a tough psych-pop/proto-metal gem that features acid guitar solos, dynamic rhythms & complex multi-part compositions that recall pop-art era Who & the MC5's classic "High Time”; plus endless weird production touches like backwards tapes, judicious echo & reverb, overdubbed orchestration, etc., and with the tracks segueing together into two side-long suites. The bluesy singer does a fine job too, smoothly growling like T.S McPhee tempered with a bit of Burton Cummings. Dragonfly is an archetypal example of the 1968-1972 late-psych / proto-metal style.
