OCTOBER COUNTRY - same
( Revola / UK ) So here it is...the long awaited, long anticipated release of October Country, one of the prime collectable projects of legendary producer Michael Lloyd:Michael Lloyd is in some ways a mysterious figure...child prodigy surfrocker...Kim Fowley protιgι...member of The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, house producer for Tower Records, vice president of MGM Records at 23, producer of hits for artists from The Osmonds to Leif Garrett, and involved in some of the most awesomely collectable softpop/ psychedelic rarities of all time! This much sought after album by little-known LA act October Country includes as much input from Lloyd and his usual collaborators as it does from the band themselves, on a set of songs mostly written by Lloyd..rendering the group's own roots as a We Five-ish folkpop group completely unrecognisable! A superb piece of classic psychpop, done in tandem with the soundtrack to Steven Spielberg's first movie "Amblin'", featuring many of the same musicians.....this is in many ways the companion piece to the legendary Tower Records album by The Smoke (effectively a Lloyd solo album), and some of it's songs reappear in punkier versions on the soundtrack to early 1970's cartoon The Cattanooga Cats..sung by bubblegum king Joey Levine, softpop beauty Melody Clinger, and the unlikely figure of Rupert Holmes....but that's another story! A snapshot of a genius at work, and of the Sunset Strip pop scene of the 1960's!! This is its first time ever on CD! Included are the mono single mixes all in the usual Rev-Ola state of the art remastering! Plus a lavish package with detailed notes by Steve Stanley. Michael Lloyd is a legend....from his days in The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band to his mega-success as a pop producer....and this is a must for all collectors of softpop, psychpop, and 1960's West Coast music in general! 15,00 €

ODYSSEY - Setting Forth
(Lion/CND) Once upon a time, when the music business was more music than business (but only just), there was a band that created a quintessential dose of New York sixties psychedelia-strong harmonic vocals, heavy swirling organ, and fuzz guitar riffs of the greatest ferocity. Finally, their lone album-one of the ten rarest and most sought after US psychedelic albums-is available again: painstakingly remastered, repackaged, and ready for true psych fans to devour. This is truly one of the cornerstones of underground psychedelic music, recorded in 1969, released in an edition of fewer than 100 copies, and impossible to find as it only came in a plain white cardboard sleeve. An album that jumps right out of the speakers at you, from it's opening "In-a-gadda-da-vida" riffs right to the very end. Twelve-page booklet has part one of a band history by Odyssey leader Vinny Kusy, as well as rare photos from his own archive. LP version in heavy cardboard gatefold jacket will be available in June:15,00 €


ODYSSEY - Live at Levittown Memorial Auditorium: 1974
(Lion/CND) A live recording that was never really meant to be, recorded by Odyssey's sound engineer on a portable cassette recorder, and recently unearthed! "Live at Levittown" is the only document of Odyssey as they were in their progressive phase, just before Fred Callan and sometime Odyssey keyboardist Tom Doncourt recorded their legendary album as Cathedral. Bonus tracks include three "basement recordings" from the "Setting Forth" era-two untitled originals that never made the album, plus the band's version of "Whiter Shade of Pale". These three tracks have been salvaged as well as possible from the cassette that is the only recorded evidence of these songs. Important note: this disc is not audiophile quality sound! despite our best efforts, it's rough sounding, but we think that you'll find it well worth listening to, despite the source limitations. Twelve-page booklet has a continuation of the Odyssey story by band leader Vinny Kusy, as well as rare photos from his own archive:15,00 €

The band was founded in 1971...in 1974 they recorded some tracks cleanly and professionally in their rehearsal room..." and it is these recordings that have been released here. I thought that this one started a little slowly, but after a short while it really starts to smoke. The band consists of flute, saxes, keyboards, guitar, double bass and drums.
