Michel Pagliaro / Merrell Fankhauser

I’ve given up on San Francisco providing me with a summer so I’ve been relegated to staying inside and finding bizarre pop songs that conjure some of that obscured balminess. Michel Pagliaro is like the French-Canadian George Harrison, channeling some full blown All Things ’71 guitar here that has been suiting me quite fine. Also check out this KILLER single by him from the same year, that is actually a bit more Lennon-tinged:

Merrell Fankhauser may or may not have become a¬†Hawaiian¬†cult leader by the time this video was cut, but damn if it isn’t catchy as hell. He’s most well known for his HMS Bounty project from the late 60’s that pysch collectors obsess over. His solo album Maui from 1976 has a lot of hidden gems on it. It kind of has a beachier Dylan Self-Portrait era vibe. So, pretty much perfect. Listen to this single first actually, I think it’s his strongest song from the period:
