Haymarket Square is one of those '60s albums whose cover is marvelous, and reputation extraordinary, but musically turns out to be pretty lame. The sound is more in line with '60s pop-rock, but there's no way that any of these songs could've ever made it onto the radio, because (apart from the private pressing) the tracks feel like repetitive demo sketches rather than well-polished compositions. This recording had all the right components to be great: fuzz, male+femme vocals, etc., but lacked the polish to reach any tangible noteworthiness. With some more energy the group could have made a powerful garage act, or with better lyrics and more dynamic compositions a trippy psychedelic group, but this album presents neither. There are some promising guitar solos, which is a redeeming quality, but equally some real duds, like the drumming on the first track, which I'd liken to The Shaggs. If I had to describe this album with one phrase, it would probably be "fake psych" ... or just "boring." The reissues are all NR'd vinyl dubs; the originals probably sound better but are very rare and hugely overvalued.

And to think I found this record at a Chicago record fair in the late 80's (for $27) and eventually got conned out of it by "Warren Peace", of the price guide notoriety. Never saw another one.
