This is the only state featured in this series that is limited to only one LP. Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 18. Compilation album. The title sounds like it might have come from a weather report, although "Highs" intends to mean "the best" (and is also an apparent drug reference), while the recordings on these albums were originally released in the mid-1960s. Sugarloaf was an American rock band that originated under the name Chocolate Hair in 1968. The band, which formed in Denver, Colorado, scored two Top 10 hits, with the singles "Green-Eyed Lady" and "Don't Call Us, We'll Call You".

Highs in the Mid Sixties, Vol. 2: .
The AIP Records series Highs in the Mid-Sixties concentrates on regional musical scenes rather than groupings of obscure songs from across the nation, and 5 of the 23 albums in that series are on Texas bands. This CD by the Holy Ghost Reception Committee reminds me of stock liner notes that appeared on several of the compilation albums in the Pebbles Series and in the Highs in the Mid-Sixties Series, which collected obscure 1960’s garage rock and psychedelic rock songs. Covering obscure garage-rock and psychedelic-rock songs taken, for example, from the Highs in the Mid-Sixties Series and later albums in the Pebbles Series is fine for people who are not familiar with them; but for people like me who already know all of those songs, I am often reminded about how much fresher the original versions were.
