4.0 out of 5 stars Not Much Available by The Electric Indian on CD March 15, 2013
Format:Vinyl
This 1969 album titled Keem-O-Sabe (United Artists 6728) by the Philadelphia studio musician instrumental group cobbled together by Bernie Binnick as The Electric Indian contains: A1. Keem-O-Sabe (2:10); A2. I Heard It Through The Grapevine (3:10); A3. Spinning Wheel (3:05); A4. Storm Warning (2:18); A5. Rain Dance (2:10); B1. Geronimo (5:15); B2. Only The Strong Survive (2:27); B3. My Cherie Amour (3:12); B4. What Does It Take To Win Your Love? (3:07); B5. 1-2-3 (2:20).

Produced by Len Barry, who had a hit in 1965 with a vocal version of 1-2-3, most of the tracks were engineered at his Sigma Sound Studio by Joseph Tarsia, and most of the musicians involved would later score again as members of the studio's in-house band, MFSB, in the 1970s.

The single Keem-O-Sabe had been released earlier that year on Marmaduke 4001 b/w Broad Street and when it began to be noticed locally was picked up by United Artists, and with their promotional clout behind them, the band saw it rise to # 16 Billboard Pop Hot 100 in August/September 1969 b/w the same flip on United Artists 50563. It also struck a chord in the R&B market, making it to # 46, as well as, somewhat surprisingly, an even higher # 6 on the Adult Contemporary (AC) listings.

The only thing keeping them from becoming a legitimate One-Hit Wonder was the subsequent instrumental version of Land Of 1000 Dances which made it to # 30 AC and # 95 Hot 100 late in December b/w Geronimo on United Artists 50613. Other releases failed to chart in 1970 (Rain Dance/Storm Warning on United Artists 50647 and Apotchee/Chicago Hawk on United Artists 50701) and 1971 (Geronimo/My Cherie Amour on United Artists 50744).
