In recently: Rick Price & Mike Sheridan: “This Is To Certify • The Gemini Anthology” (2004) double-CD. I’ve been hearing some of the songs collected here for years on various legit and bootleg psych comps. The best of these songs have a yearning, emotional, post-psych quality to them that comes over as very “Fading Yellow.” In the Goldilocks zone between popsike, singer-songwriter, and orch-pop comes 39 tracks of mostly excellent songs with a few turkeys peppered in (“Top Ten Record,” and uninspired cover of “Mr. Bojangles,” some corny song about Jesus you could scrape off the end of the second disc). Though this came out 15 years ago, I’m glad I finally found all these delightful songs in one place. geminirecords mikesheridan rickprice popsike singersongwriter psychedelic orchpop fadingyellow

Joan Baez, JOAN (1967) & DAVID'S ALBUM (1969) 🤹‍♀️ Happy Birthday Joan Baez! In addition to possessing a three octave range, stupefying skill on the guitar, and an unfaltering devotion to the causes of peace and racial equality, Baez is a master of genre experimentation. These are two of our favourites, on which she tackles 60s orchestral pop and Nashville country, respectively. A true living legend, a queen, a hypnotist collector.

In today: V/A: “Come Join My Orchestra • The British Baroque Pop Sound 1967 - 1973” (2018) triple-CD box set. I’ve not compared track listings, but this new compilation seems to expand upon the “Tea & Symphony” collection that was issued and instantly deleted (rights issues?) some years back. I love these Grapefruit compilations. I may have many of the songs, but they also sport exquisite sound, tracks that are new to me (hurray!), a nice booklet, and a reasonable price. Considering my adoration of baroque or orch pop, a set like this is like looking at a sliver of my heart on a microscope slide. grapefruitrecords comejoinmyorchestra baroquepop orchpop psychedelic popsike fadingyellow

In today: Trevor Billmuss: “Family Apology” (1970) LP. I’ve been looking to score a copy of this at a reasonable price for some time now. This sort of peculiar record (orch pop?) seems like not only could it have been released in its era, but that it was destined to be an artifact that only a few people (me! you?) would ever feel enthusiasm for. Who was this guy? trevorbillmuss familyapology orchpop orchestralpop popsike psychedelic vinyl vinylcollection vinylcollector rarerecords charismarecords

In yesterday: The Big Pink (South Korea) mini-LP skeeve CD edition of Sounds of Modification's sole 1968 s/t album. Pop-sike/sunshine pop with lavish (at times absurdly overblown in an endearing manner) orchestral arrangements. Clocking in under 30 minutes, this is likely all these fellows had in them. But it's a jubilant little relic in a style I adore. soundsofmodification popsike bigpink psychedelic lsd sunshinepop orchpop harmonypop 1968

Woe be unto you if you elect to ignore this record. The s/t LP by Dave Antrell circa 1970 (no follow-up records, no CD or digital release) seems to have little cult following or collector appeal. But-but-but it's a true gem, an essentially perfect baroque pop marvel that moves between ebullience and melancholia, all propelled forward by Antrell's warm voice and lyrics lush with longing. The songs "Karen" and "Lost In A Dream" may make you weep. Mr Antrell, wherever you are, quite possibly dead, I love your LP. Koreans need to release this on disc. daveantrell orchpop baroquepop poppsych psychedelic lsd dreampop lostinadream vinyl vinylgram vinylporn vinylcollector vinylcollection rarerecords singersongwriter

Goobers who take the format fetishist line that "only vinyl is real" trade a love of music for a love of objects. Case in point: these new The Move deluxe CDs from the Esoteric Recordings label from the UK. They feature such a wealth of material with stunning sound that only fools (or those foolish enough not to be fans of The Move) would turn their noses up over the shiny silver discs. themove shazam poppsych popsike orchpop elo psychedelic lsd esotericrecordings
