1969 Ultimate Spinach – Ultimate Spinach III

Ultimate Spinach was an American psychedelic rock band from Boston, Massachusetts which was formed in 1967. In terms of style and national recognition, the band was one of the most prominent musical acts to emerge from the “Bosstown Sound”, which was a regional attempt to compete with the San Francisco Sound. During the group’s existence, they released three albums, with their self-titled debut the most commercially successful.

In 1969, their final album, Ultimate Spinach III, was released, but failed to chart. After Douglas departed, the band did not have a primary songwriter so the album was misguided and contained multiple styles from each band member. The band broke up soon after.
