Southern California Spotlight: The Seeds - Pushin' Too Hard/Out Of The Question

The Seeds released their signature tune, Pushin' Too Hard, twice. The first time in November of 1965 on GNP Crescendo 364x with the flip-side of Out Of The Question. That release gave the title of You're Pushin' Too Hard. Then in July of 1966, they gave us a different release as GNP Crescendo 372x backed with Try To Understand, which had been released as an A-side months prior in February of 1966.

We feature today the first release of You're Pushing Too Hard/Out Of The Question (even though we picture the second release).
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!


  1. Quite a different version of Pushin.

    1. Yeah, it's my favorite. I can't say for sure that it comes from the original single release. I digitized it off of an oddball Crescendo LP called Fallin' Off The Edge from '77. I was once told it was the original recording of Pushin' Too Hard but I don't know if (a) that is true, and (b) what "original" means in that sentence.
