Although I'm an avid collector of late sixties pyschedelic & pop-psych bands, I was completely unaware of Puff until recently. The record was produced by the legendary, and much over-looked, Alan Lorber. In fact, this CD release (the LP was on MGM) comes from Iris Music which, from what I gather, is run by Lorber's heirs or close associates. I recommend checking out the Iris Music group's website. There I found a few surprises and they were always kind enough to answer my questions. So, as for the music on Puff, it has the crisp production which was the trademark of Lorber and the Bosstown Sound circa 1969. The band's songwriting and vocal work are the attraction here. The sound falls somewhere between the first and third Ultimate Spinach records. The vocals, with their clever arrangements, are up front. The band consists primarily of the standard guitar, bass, drums & organ line up. Alan Lorber's production places every sound perfectly in the mix with a few FX treats peppered here and there. The record is a fun ride and while it doesn't quite deserve the moniker of "lost classic", it should be in the collection of anyone who enjoys the pop-psych music of the late sixties and bands like Ultimate Spinach, Chamaeleon Church, Chrysalis, etc.

I love this album and loved this group!

I owned the record when it was originally published in 1969 by MGM records, used to go see this group of guys all the time at live small venues in the New Hampshire area,they also played lots of small venues in Massachusetts.

At one point early on in their careers, this group, then known as The Rockin Ramrods opened for the Rolling Stones concert in Boston MA, they later went by the name The Ramrods, seems Alan Lorber decided they needed to change their name to Puff after recording this album under the Ramrods, supposedly to give them an edgier sounding group name...
These guys were way ahead of their time, or just about in step with the Beatles in what they were doing with experimental things they did with their recordings on this album...

Puff's lead singer (at the time of this recording) David-Allen Ryan who quit the group a couple of years after the release of this album, went on to become "Chico" in Sha-Na-Na. Sadly, Dave Ryan died from complications of a choking accident a number of years ago, David Ryan still has tons of adoring fans for his role as Chico and I am sure tons of fans of the talent he brought to this group Puff.

BTW, the first songs title is shown as "Dead Thoughts Of Albert", it is actually "Dead Thoughts Of Alfred", shame on this set of publishers (Iris)!

Ronn Campisi composed all the groups songs and was also one of the original members of The Rockin Ramrods( I understand he left because he was married, had a new family and agreed he would keep writing their songs ), all the members were quite talented, most had gone to college, their organ player (Jim) I understand was a classically trained musician! They had a perfect mix of band members, their Karma was great together, I think they all became discouraged after years of touring locally, I think they saw all their hard work was getting them very little fame, except from their devoted local following.
