Sounds Of Modification - Sounds Of Modification /A New Place to Live (1968/72 us, wonderful baroque sunny psych, 2014 korean remaster)



Baroque psych band, hailing from Long Island NY, recorded and released only this album in 1968 at Jubilee label. Beautiful harmonies and arragements from good musicians such as the drummer Mike Cavouto, guitarist Frank Porcelli, Bob Dorsa the bass player, brass section by Joe Cavalea, and Pete Maletta on keyboards.
  
They made several other recordings and release another album in 1972 under the name "A New Place to Live", slight different from the "Sounds Of Modification" album, a  concept piece seemingly based on American psychic Edgar Cayce and a bizarre mixture of ecological concerns, history, religion, social commentary, and probably way too many illicit substances.
