HARPER & ROWE LP
I just wanted to recommend this 1968 US LP on the World Pacific label to you all. It has a stunning gatefold psychedelic cover and some great popsike tracks within. Its still available cheaply as I think it was a little too commercial for the hippes but not soft enough for the teenyboppers. The Dweller recalls the Style Council years before they ever existed. Here comes yesterday again and Picture me high set the psychedelic scene while Love machine has a quirky period health and safety ignoring video-
Great album. I had a cdr of it years ago and tracks off it were always turning up on comps of US light-psych and such 10-12 years ago. Definitely a keeper.
I've listened to the clips I found on the tube, but have not been really impressed, maybe the other songs are better? Didn't know that Ralph Murphy is actually English (the album was also recorded in the UK I believe) and the duo recorded previously as Slade Brothers for Pye. Murphy had also a good career after
Hi Paul glad you liked it. Definitely worth picking up if you can get it.
Gian, sorry to hear you didn't like it. Each to their own I suppose. The tracks I listed are IMHO the best ones so if I was you I'd avoid. I presumed it was a US lp - it appears Murphy was British with links to Canada-
Also that video looks a bit later than 1968- anyone have any clue about this?
A nice LP. One amongst many similar US pop LPs with light psych influences that are still easy to pick up cheap as originals.
