City Of Gold

LP (Item 468953) Reprise, 1971 — Condition: Very Good+
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 10

A return to folksier forms for Tom Rapp and Pearls Before Swine – working here in territory that's very different than some of the baroque light arrangements used on previous records. Rapp's emerging as a more confident singer/songwriter – recording in an almost Dylan-like setting, but with more of the irony of Leonard Cohen, and as always, working in a timeless idiom that's still beginning to be understood more than 30 years after its inception. Beautiful work throughout – as earthy as it is majestic – and with titles that include "My Father", "The Man", "Once Upon A Time", "City Of Gold", "Nancy", and "Wedding". (Original white label promo pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Release Of An Oath
Reprise, 1968. Very Good
The second album done by David Axelrod for The Electric Prunes – and arguably the best! The album's a bit unusual, in that none of the original Prunes were actually working on the session – and instead, Axlerod's almost fully at the helm – putting together the set in a way that's ...
