A very little information is available about this US group. Felt came from Alabama. Their self titled album was recorded for Nasco in 1971. The bands leader, Myke Jackson also made a solo album. Tommy Gilstrap can also be found on recordings by Mychael (LP "Neon Dreams" 1978,Free Flight No. 3400). LP "Felt" is a very interesting and unique album. The opening cut, "Look at the sun" is a very melodic and a bit like Lennon - McCartney compositions. Instrumentally their sound was dominated by organ and guitar. The band played an imaginative amalgam of psychodelia and progressivism. They managed to make a great album with complex arrangements,rich instrumental textures and soulful vocals. My favourite compositions "The Change" with sound like in "Half Changed Again" and "Destination"a real fusion of main jazz, rock and blues.
