Obscure Canadian psychedelic rock band The Dorians was formed in 1968 in the town of Kingsville, Ontario, by singer John Unger and bassist Bob Nixon, formerly of The Doomsday Machine. Guitarist/chief songwriter Bill Loop drafted esteemed drummer Mike Betts, who joined in September 1967 after playing with Loop in Living Ends. Since Kingsville lies less than an hour
away from Detroit by road, the band began recording at noted soul spot, GM Studios, in 1969, working with songwriter, trumpeter and arranger Floyd Jones. Early singles such as the
catchy 'Psychedelic Lipstick' were licensed to European labels, including Giacomo Mazzini's Swiss-based PDU, which issued their sole long-player, 'Rock Concerto,' in 1970. Although 'Means
And Ways' and 'Good Love' are framed as easy-going psych driven by strong vocal harmony, 'Torch Song' drifted into spaced-out territory via extended instrumental jamming, led by the parallel playing of bass, violin and keyboards. This edition of the highly collectable LP includes bonus track 'Worm Conquers All,' taken from the 'Torch Song' single B-side.
