You've got to love "Love You". Coming off the heels of the successful "15 Big Ones" LP (their first truly successful studio LP in the US since the late 1960s) and the misguided "Brian is Back" campaign, the record buying public gets this strange little ... See full review
posted a comment on The Beach Boys - Sunflower. over 5 years ago
As several have previously mentioned, this is an excellent Beach Boys LP and was sadly under-appreciated and poorly sold in the US, but did get overwhelmingly positive reviews in England and even charted there in the mid 20's (vs. in the #150's in the ... See full review

A short bio of Wild Man Fischer: Born 11/6/1944, he was one of several children, and even as a child, his family knew 'something was different' about Larry - especially since he spent most of his time in his room, singing to himself. While not known at ... See full review

Nino Tempo & April Stevens' "All Strung Out" is a masterpiece of a song, which takes it's cues from Spector's Wall of Sound (Tempo has worked w/Spector, and knew what he was doing).

Released on the White Whale label, which Tempo & Stevens has signed to ... See full review

I don't have this Japanese EP, but it's the only release I can review Del's excellent cover of the Stones "Under My Thumb", which originally came out in the states in '66 as a 45, w "She Was Mine" as the B-side (Liberty 55904). Del gives new life into ... See full review
posted a comment on Jan & Dean - Fiddle Around. over 5 years ago
The B-side "A Surfer's Dream", is the real gem here. A duet of Jan & his girlfriend (and songwriting partner) Jill Gibson, it's a beautiful sunshine pop-esque look at surfing. Easily the stronger side; sadly, it went unnoticed by most when released - J&D ... See full review

A great LP, and one of my favorite xian LP's - there's a very real quality to this album, and I give much kudos to the fine folks at Companion for reissuing this gem, of which original copies are extremely rare. My only beef is that they didn't include ... See full review

Mainstream Records is a prime example of a label that had several incarnations, each one as different as the next. Formed in 1964 by Bob Shad, it primarily released jazz and soundtrack LP's, with a emphasis on jazz vocal artists like Morgana King and ... See full review

Ah, Tower Records, Capitol's sub-label for it's castaways and artists considered 'too freaky' to be on Capitol. Beyond this, it was an incredible diverse label, releasing everything from the first stateside issue of Pink Floyd's debut LP, Eternity ... See full review

It should be noted that "Hippy Heaven" and "Banana-Loo" were taken from this LP and issued as a 45 by Worthy, presumably in 1967. I haven't had the chance to hear the LP, but "Hippy Heaven" is a great slice of latin LSD-sploitation, the song being about ... See full review

If there ever was such a thing as a pyramid of song poem singers/performers, Rodd Keith a/k/a Rod Rogers would be at the top. Unlike other song poem singers who merely treated each song like the menial job it was, Rodd realized he was being given a ... See full review

There aren't many albums like the lone LP from the Kinbotes, and I like it that way, mainly because no one could really touch the essence and atmosphere contained within the LP. For years little was known about the album, aside from it being presumed to ... See full review

Kim Fowley incognito (although anyone who knows their Fowley knows it's him - no one else quite sounds that way!) 45, released on the Chattahoochee label, which Fowley was involved in back when he produced the Murmaids "Popsicles and Icicles" 45. ... See full review

Calling this album a 'mixed bag' is an understatement. The brain-child of Jonathan King, who I would best describe at England's answer to Kim Fowley, don't be fooled by the title and think this is a straight-up bubblegum LP - it's far from that. ... See full review

A great 45 - I only know the "Mysterious Clown" side, as it was also comped on the "Only In America" CD, released by Arf! Arf! in the mid 90's. I would best describe it as an inept attempt at garage rock, with some doo-wop influences (the background, ... See full review

The B-side "When It's Over", is an early piece of sunshine pop, and a gem unto itself. Don't overlook it.
posted a comment on Jan & Dean - Ride The Wild Surf. over 5 years ago
The B-side is a work of genius from Jan Berry, turning a Bach fugue into a absurd rock 'n' roll tune about hip grannies who run a car club.

Those that enjoy the track may want to seek out the backing track - which is a great listen in it's full glory.
posted a comment on Randy & The Rest - The Vacuum. over 5 years ago
Yes, this 45 on SSS International (Shelby Singleton's label) is a strange one; as far as I know, no stock copies of it exist. "The Vacuum" may just be the only 45, as Erik Lindgren put it, "to include a vacuum solo". Psych fans will be aware of the song ... See full review

Don't be put off by the 'soft rock' style listed above, for this is far from it. Rather, 1968's "Present Tense", the first of two LP's by the studio project Sagittarius, is an excellent psychedelic pop / baroque pop album, with beautiful orchestrations ... See full review

Those of you that have seen "True Stories" know what a special film it it - it's unlike any other film that came out in the 80's.

A truly strange LP. Original copies of this are as rare as hen's teeth (maybe even rarer!), just because very few were pressed, and even less sold (or were given away).

Musically, the closest thing I could compare it to would be somewhere between ... See full review

Before the SMiLE box set was issued recently, this was one of the best releases of SMiLE tracks out there. Luckily, I was able to find a copy some time ago for cheap, and it's been in my collection ever since. I admit, I haven't listened to the whole set ... See full review

I haven't heard the A-side (but remember reading it wasn't so hot), but the B-side is a slice of psychedelic weirdness. Mixing various vocals, overdubs and sound effects, you get a truly strange 45. It's pretty obscure, but thankfully it was comped on ... See full review

Really good 2-CD anthology of J&D. For the casual listeners, the hits (Surf City, Drag City, Little Old Lady From Pasadena) are here, as well as some deeper tracks (both sides of Jan's solo 45). But the real reason to get this is the selection of ... See full review
