POWER – CHILDREN ASK (If He Is Dead)

 

POWER – \”Children Ask (If He Is dead)\” / \”She Is The Color Of\” (MGM K13815) September 1967 

Power were a young and talented group from South Bay, CA and this single was their only release. The record was released on the independent Showplace label a month earlier then was distributed by MGM who advised the group or at least the singer to re-record his vocal and change the words \”God is dead\” to \”He is dead\” to avoid any potential ban by radio stations. Squaresville existed in 1967. 

Both numbers were recorded at Paramount Studios on Melrose. \”Children Ask\” is a psychedelic fuzz experience with brooding organ and religious overtones.  The other side \”She Is The Color Of\” is a psych ballad similar to the trip Love were on, especially with the addition of trumpet during the outro.
