Very sweet, and very groovy work from Liz Damon's Orient Express – a fab Hawaiian combo with a really great sound! The group's music is sort of a mix of lounge jazz, bossa grooving, and the kind of sweet late 60s easy touches that were showing up in Brit sound library music. Liz handles lead vocals on most of the tracks with a voice that sounds like it drifted right out of Brasil 66 – and a number of other cuts have the guys in the band backing her up with some great soft rock harmonies! Titles include "1900 Yesterday", "You Make Me Feel Like Someone", "Bring Me Sunshine", "You're Falling In Love", "That Same Old Feeling", and "Close To You". LP, Vinyl record album
Plant And See —
Plant & See ... LP WhiteWhale/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1969. New Copy Gatefold ....
The rare late 60s album by Plant And See! The record is a great mix of psych and soul released on WhiteWhale – the adventurous label home of fellow funk rock/country soul genre buster Jim Ford – and another essential gem! Led by Native American guitarist and lead vocalist Willie French Lowery, the group is notable for it's multi-racial lineup – which was, sadly, a real anomaly at the time – but the music is their greatest selling point! There's a bit of a funky, kinda swampy rock vibe throughout, plus some straight up blistering tunes with furious drums and blazing guitars, and some sweeter moments, thanks to female backing vocals. Includes "Put Out My Fire', "Flat On My Face", "Mrs. Tree", "Henrietta", "Love & Affection", "Poor Rich Man", "Seekin' Advice", "Witches Brew" and "Leavin" (the lead vocal by backing singer Carol Fitzgerald.
