Dragonfly was actually a band called The Legend who's debut album (on which they weren't allowed to play or contribute songs) was somewhat butchered by their record company. So they decided to pursue other interests. Under a different name (association with that Legend album wasn't gonna happen), they recorded this. They didn't have the best sound quality (crackles and pops still cover the sound on CD), but they had enough technology to mess around. Throughout this album, the track suddenly jumps into backward recording, slows down suddenly, or dissipates altogether. The boys explode into ridiculous giggles, get wasted by a moaning trombone, and turn into a giant rolling ball of mung at the end before returning to form. Along the way, we have some good songs. "Blue Monday" opens the album with a moan of "Oooh my God.." then harsh chords, before rhythm guitarist Gene cracks his throat in anger. "Enjoy Yourself" is bouncy, thoughtful psychedelia, "Crazy Woman" sounds very 60s and somewhat Moby Grape. "To Be Free" is a good bit of yearning and hope: the classic 60s message. There's just all kinds of good stuff here. The drums are fierce and the fuzz-toned lead guitar is excellent. There's some heavy solos on this album. Great performing. Gene's vocals sometimes sound like Keith Relf of the Yardbirds and sometimes like Jack Bruce of Cream. It's forgotten, and that's a pity. Take an acid trip ito the good ol' days of heavy psychedelic hard rock. It'll blow you away.

Not to be confused with the Swedish progressive rock outfit. I would best describe this as backyard bonfire biker bash music. Probably because a biker turned me on to this in the late 80's saying this is what they used to listen to at 60's biker parties along with stuff like Sir Lord Baltimore, Gracious, The Litter, and Lincoln Street Exit.
It encompasses the whole vibe of that era, so yes it's very much of its time, but not in a cheesy way--no, this rocks with passion. I really wondered how many other little known bands there were from that time period to discover, and while I've found a few (less than I'd hoped), these guys were the real deal. Imaginative songs with more than competent musicianship, but oh, that SOUND. If you really love that era's sound, it is in full force here. I am not from that era, but I love the music and appreciate this on many levels. Even when they stretch, as in lyrics like "Merry-go-round, tripping along, stumbling over skyscrapers, you can touch the sky with your elastic mind", it just sounds so cool that you will accept it with a smile. I don't want to compare them to other bands as they stand on their own merit, but if you like any of the above mentioned obscure bands, or more known bands such as Steppenwolf, you will wish you had heard this a long time ago.

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. They sometimes have a sound similar to several groups of that era, a little bit of Iron Butterfly and perhaps Cream, and even at times The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Blue Cheer.

The guitar playing is excellent "acid-psych" all the way, and it gets very heavy at times.

Although this album is not that long, it's a very good album and should be heard for fans of classic 60's hard rock or psychedelic rock. I would highly recommmend this.

The title of this review is a little misnomer as the band had to exist or there wouldn't be a record. However, they only existed in the studio as Dragonfly, as they were actually the remnants of a band called The Legend. This was to be their breakout album, but the forces that be actually sabotaged what they were trying to do, and the album got released with no live shows, nothing. The band actually broke up before they could perform anywhere.

That being said, the music is what The Legend should have been doing instead of the album they were forced to do, which is another story.

Dragonfly is fuzzed out psychedelia of the first order. This album reminds me of a long defunct music store in Lancaster, California where I saw this album over and over again in the late 60's, early 70's but never got around to buying. It must've sat on their record rack for a year. In fact, I'd joined the Air Force and gone through basic training and tech school and was back home for a visit, and saw it still sitting on that rack at the music store when I visited Lancaster. I think if the album had been on a shelf in Palmdale where I lived, I might have picked it up eventually. I just didn't get over to Lancaster enough, and my curiosity didn't get the better of me.

Now, I wish I'd bought it back then, not only for the collector's value, but because it is a really really good album.

The music takes me back to the late 60's and reminds me of many bands, yet nobody exactly. I hear touches of Morgen, maybe a little Steppenwolf. I can't really pin them down that well. The thing is that they were good, real good, and it's just too bad they were never able to exploit their album.

Dragonfly is a lost psychedelic treasure and if you like fuzz-laden music with a few quirky twists, this is a CD you must get. Highly recommended.
