T.I.M.E.)-T.I.M.E. & Smooth ball (1968-69 )



T.I.M.E. (Trust in Men Everywhere)
A competent quasi-psychedelic band from the Los Angeles area. They evolved out of Hardtimes which had included Byrom and Richardson. The opening track to their debut album, Tripping Into Sunshine, starts with a typical psychedelic introduction, although the remainder of Side One is comprised of rather mundane rock material. However, the standard improves on Side Two, particularly with I Really Love You and the closing track Take Me Along. Three of their 45 tracks are taken from this album.
The two opening tracks on their second LP released as LBS 83232 in the UK, were featured on the Gutbucket sampler helping to give the band international exposure, which they failed to exploit. Their blues influence is evident on tracks like Lazy Day Blues, while See Me As I Am, Trust In Men Everywhere and Flowers are examples of their attempts to get to grips with the predominant psychedelic influences of the time. The group made considerable use of phasing techniques, Their second album was the better of the two. The 'A' side to the second 45 is not on the album - it's a catchy pop-rock ditty with some tasty guitar.
Both Byrom and St. Nicholas later played with Steppenwolf and in 1973 Couchois and Byrom formed Ratchell.
