Food, a relatively obscure Chicago group who released their only album, Forever Is a Dream, in 1969, gets the reissue treatment on CD from Ascension Records, Australia in 2000 and Fallout FOCD2025 in 2007.
This album of soft-edged psychedelic rock offers a varied palate of pleasures.
Although the triple influences of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s Are You Experienced and Love’s Forever Changes are imbued throughout the disc, there’s enough novel curves and ideas going on here that make Food sound quite original.
Forever Is A Dream bleeds with ambition and adventure, implying Food was not exactly aspiring to be mainstream pop stars.
