"He's In Town" is one gorgeous record. I tend to pair 45s together and that one's twin is "Funny How Love Can Be"  by The Ivy League, another stunner:

A great album, with a wonderful mix of styles, all carried off with flair--even this tough r'n'b cut. The next track, "Through With You",  is the one for me, though...

Another SuperMetroid special--Tangerine Dream by the UK band Kaleidoscope now enjoys a reputation on a par with Pink Floyd's Piper... And it's easy to see hear why. From that 1967 album, this is the wonderfully named "(Further Reflections) In The Room Of Percussion":

Nice! I like Entwistle's comment: "We wanted to put 'cellos on the track but Kit Lambert said we couldn't afford it. That's why we sing 'cello, cello, cello, cello,'...where we thought they should be."

Here's another from the "Keepers" list of psych-related LPs I'm gradually working my way through, leaving out things I know (or know I don't like). From 1967, these are The Freeborne with "Land Of Diana":

There's an Association thread at PSF started by malc (Malcolm C. Searles), who has just written a book about that band:

https://www.troubador.co.uk/bookshop/media-the-arts/the-association-cherish/

This is still my favourite of theirs--a Tandyn Almer special:

I was reminded of this lovely song from '66 when working my way through a list of (almost) all good stuff. John Sebastian may have written "A Younger Girl" and recorded it with the Spoonful but The Critters took it to greater heights in my opinion.

I had a love-hate relationship (no pun intended) with Love's Forever Changes for years, decades... one's tempted to say half a century.

But I've mellowed with age, it seems. This is "A House Is Not A Motel":

That's my favourite of theirs. "Morningtown" is another goodie.

Check out Grace Slick's face when she first sings the name "Alice"--such a magical moment.

A difficult situation then... and a beautiful Pet-Soundsy song by The Mindbenders (sans Wayne Fontana) that just scraped into the UK Top Thirty in 1966:

I didn't like this Dusty 45 at the time, fixated as I was on US stuff, but it resonates with me now:

Funny you should bring up Dusty Springfield. On the way to work the other day, she came on the radio, and it made me think. I am sure my late Gran saw her live before she died in the '90s in Birmingham.

However I can't find any information about if she did play.

"Coming Back To Me" featured in last night's episode of Trust, which has included a lot of great late '60s music up till now.

We'd just got off the boat at Santo Antao a couple of weeks back when I bumped into this Dutch bloke wearing a Sonics T-shirt! It seems he'd seen them recently and they still sounded pretty good. So this is for him and his partner:



I remember reading in a pop mag that The Sonics' version of "Louie Louie" was so underdeveloped it still had gills and fins.

Today we heard a version of The Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" sung by an adult pupil of the woman coaching our two eldest grandchildren in singing. She went for Bobby Hatfield's high E (here at 2:55) but never got there. It was a brave try and in my opinion the right thing to do. The performance was a whole was quite something.
