    Dragonfly
Megaphone Records
1968 “Dragonfly” is a hard rock/blues psych record and it is absolutely fantastic. Most people know it simply as "Dragonfly" because it doesn't say the name of the band anywhere on the record or label, but it was released by a band called "The Legend.” The Legend was touring around, and absolutely killing it. They put on a great live show, and packed out any venue they booked. They ended up in LA, and they heard a local record label was trying out bands to be signed tho their label, so they tried out. They discovered that the label was really just poaching members of the bands they auditioned so they could create their own group that they could control. They only wanted The Legend’s drummer. When he turned them down, they offered to sign the whole band, so then The Legend was signed to “Megaphone Records.” The recorded their self titled album “The Legend” earlier in 1968. During this process they started to realize this rinky-dink record label had no clue what they were doing. The label’s owner and producer bossed them around, and micromanaged every track they recorded. The album was released and the band got basically nothing. They were broke, living off bologna sandwiches while the label’s owner was flaunting his money. He skimmed every cent he could off the record, and it turns out, The Legend was the only band on the label. They were furious.
As the label started running out of money, they brought the band in to record a second album. When they started the band members refused to play a single note unless they voided the contract and allowed the band to have creative control over this record. So, they were released from the contract. That’s why “Dragonfly” is so much better than “The Legend.”
The label somehow found the painting on the cover from some hippy who didn’t speak words, he only spoke in animal noises, so they basically stole the painting from him for the cover. On the painting there is the dragonfly, so the label released the record entitled “Dragonfly.”
This is a sad example of an incredible band that just got signed by the wrong label. It’s a phenomenal hard rock, fuzz, psychedelic masterpiece. #FindThisRecord

    ”The thing with Jimmy is that he's almost never satisfied. Here he is considered to be one of the greatest guitarists in the world and he's worried that he's not playing good enough." – Robert Plant
