Wild early 70s post psychedelic folk rock from Richmond, IN group Hoi' Polloi – one
that rolls from charming acoustic songcraft to proggish experimentation and back from one
track to the next – it's definitely a record that deserves a discovery! The band is populated by 5 different songwriters, so there's a lot going in here. One
track might have a sunshine country rock harmony vibe and the next might be an adventure in tripped out tape effects. It's disorienting in a good way
! A strange mix of moods – but it's a rewarding one
! Titles include "Who's Gonna Help Me", "Old Bootstrap", "Last Laugh", "Hoi Polloi Peeks Out", "Satisfaction Guaranteed", "Devil Song", "15 Miles To Mexico", "Stories", "I Used To Think" and more. This great vinyl version from Family Vineyard comes with a reproduction of the original photocopied insert – plus an additional insert with new liner notes by Jason Henn.
(Includes download for an alternate mix of the album – plus bonus tracks and previously unreleased live recordings!)
