The Mojo Men !



The Mojo Men !!!
Yeah, a bit of history, The Mojo Men recorded for the Autumn Records label in San Francisco, California. One of their hits, 1965's "Dance With Me", and a number of other records, were produced by Sylvester Stewart, later better known as Sly Stone. (Staaaaand)
One of the first San Francisco psychedelic bands, the Mojo Men began as a British Invasion inspired group, even covering the Rolling Stones' "Off The Hook". But following the arrival of drummer Jan Ashton, the group developed more intricate arrangements and harmonies. They were one of the premier bands that help shape the San Francisco Sound !
Their many singles never fully displayed the band's considerable songwriting and vocal talents, and after changing their name to the Mojo and finally just Mojo, they disbanded in the late '60s.

The Mojo Men :
* Something Bad *
* My Woman's Head *
* Fire In My Heart *

A bit of trivia: the Mojo Men added a female singer to the band, Jan Errico of the Vejtables, who sang on many MM songs including their hit, "Sit Down I Think I Love You".
