The Beethoven Soul - The Beethoven Soul (1967 us, wonderful beat psych, baroque sunshine pop, Vinyl edition)

Six piece brass band, who came from L.A. (according to Fuzz Acid and Flower), despite the Al Kooper’s   composition “New York's My Home”. 

The band formed round 1966 and release their sole –self titled- album in 1967, sounding close to psychedelic sunshine, baroque pop, sometimes flirting with more garage beats.

After their disbanded in 1970, Lambert, Lewis and Hale all went on to play together in Pollution, a late '60s L.A.-based rock band with jazz undertones. 

A Really pleasant and much of the late sixties era feeling, this vinyl edition,  I’m not aware if there’s or going to be a CD reissue, until then, sit back, relax and make your self comfortable to enjoy the Beethoven Soul.

¿Lo ecualizaste?, los agudos suenen un tanto estridentes.

Anatoly said...

Ecualizador no se utiliza. La calidad de la producción en este caso no cumple con el nivel de la música, por desgracia. El álbum fue grabado de manera irregular, al parecer, en varios estudios.
