Summer's here and the time is right . . . for a
carefully curated compendium of late 1960s
California sunshine from the vaults of several
hallowed West Coast indie labels and production
" Big Beat's "Trip On Me: Soft Psych & Sunshine
1966-69" features 24 pop-psych nuggets replete with
a healthy dose of dulcet harmony, jazz-tinged charts
and studio freakery. All were recorded in Hollywood
or the San Francisco Bay Area for collectable labels
like Mira and Era or maverick outfits such as
producer Gary S. Paxton and SF's Trident
" The legendary Curt Boettcher appears not only as
producer but also as backing vocalist on several
cuts, as well as featured artist on a fascinating
demo. Collectable obscurities such as JP Rags, the
Pretty People and The Thousand Faces are joined
by sunshine pop staples The Forum, Primrose
Circus and Filipino female quintet The Third Wave,
who are represented by two rare early recordings.
" Drawn from unreleased masters and session tapes
with top-notch sound quality, and detailed liner
notes revealing the facts behind such unheralded
acts as the Lollipop Fantasy, Candy Company and A
Small World, "Trip On Me" is an essential purchase
for 60s pop fanciers of all persuasions.
