Stu Mitchell was the drummer for Edmonton, Alberta instrumental rockers Wes Dakus’s Rebels. He had a brief solo career, releasing a handful of singles for Kapp Records. Acid was the B-side of a 45 released in 1967.

Mitchell, sounding a whole lot like Jim Morrison, takes us on a trip down “nowhere street in a town called LSD.” While the lyrics seem to be a cautionary tale about the hazards of acid, the end result is actually pretty psychedelic. I can imagine Scott Walker covering this.
