Complete your The Forum collection. Really fun and cool exotica/psych album. Trip on Me" is a fabulously hilarious attempt to jump the psych bandwagon. Definitely worth a listen! Reply See 1 reply Notify me Helpful.
The Forum was a vocal group organized by Les Baxter whose members were Phil Campos, Riselle Bain and Rene Nole who would marry Campos. The group evolved from an earlier folk music group called Les Baxter's Balladeers. Campos, Bain and Nole split off into The Forum in 1966 as part of the folk rock craze. They had one hit record in 1967 on Mira Records with "The River Is Wide".
Forum's only album - 1967's The River Is Wide - is notable for its connection to exotica guru Les Baxter, who produced, arranged, and composed four tracks. Baxter also contributed liner sleeve notes for this highly collectible LP, which describes how he witnessed a folk performance on-stage in a Pasadena, CA, club by the leader of the trio, Phil Campos. Campos soon became a student of Baxter's and also became one of Les Baxter's Balladeers, appearing on that folk group's self-titled Reprise album in 1961.

The River Is Wide" was a hit for The Forum in 1967. It became a hit for American rock band The Grass Roots. The record was first released in 1966 on the Penthouse label. It didn't go anywhere. Nothing happened the second time. Then Decca got hold of the master. The record then started to make some progress in the UK, which got the attention of a DJ in Seattle
