✨✧ MillenniumBegin ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A dreamy little rock treat! The Millennium fit nicely on the bookshelf between The Free Design and the Beach Boys – and this debut album is the group's reigning masterpiece! The tracks are beautifully produced – with a landmark pop-sike sound that's loaded with Sunshine touches – floating in slightly experimental LA late 60s production, and topped with honest simple lyrics that should be cloying, but somehow manage to work fantastically! The album's the crowning masterpiece of the legendary Curt Boettcher – and still stands as his greatest triumph, even amidst countless other CD reissues of related work! Titles include "The Island", "To Claudia On Thursday", "5 AM", "Some Sunny Day", and "Karmic Dream Sequence #1". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has light surface wear.)

✨✧ MillenniumPieces ... CD
Sonic Past/Sound City, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice, nice, nice collection of grooves from the Millennium vaults! As y'all already must know, the group's monumental Begin was the only official album by the Millenium AS the Millennium (Boettcher, Mallory, Salisbury and co. recorded other projects together and individually) leaving a wealth of great material in unreleased, rights-controlled limbo. Decades later some of this bristling, sunshine 60s pop euphoria is FINALLY seeing the light of day. The appropriately titled Pieces is a must for fans of the group and others that came before and after such as the Mamas & Papas, the post-Pet Sounds Wilsons, the Association and others. These comparably rough Millenium nuggets sort of feel like Smiley Smile to Begin's Pet Sounds; they may not be the definitive portrait of the group's greatness, but still an essential piece of the puzzle. These tracks that have languished behind closed doors for decades are better than most sunshine pop records that WERE released. It's the kind of thing that makes us wonder how many legacies in similarly restricted circumstances will be lost forever. Includes "Prelude", "To Claudia On Thursday", "It's You", "Good People", "Once Upon A Time", "A Younger Me", "Sunshine Girl", and lots more. 21 in all! CD

High LlamasCan Cladders ... LP
Drag City, 2007. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
One of warmest, breeziest, best High Llama's efforts of the the post millennium to date – with some of the catchiest songs in their canon! This one has the bellwether elements you'd expect from the Llamas – mixing lush and laidback moods as distinctly as ever, and blending retro style and instrumentation with timeless tunefulness – but something about the lyrical focus of the songs really makes this one of their more immediately engaging efforts. It's almost classic Kinks-ian in its scene-setting songcraft. Titles include The Old Spring Town", "Winter's Day", "Sailing Bells", "Dorothy Ashby" (complete with harp – possibly our favorite song on the album, naturally), "Rollin'", "Something About Paper", "Clarion Union Hall", "Cove Cutter (Hills And Fields)", "Boing Backwards" and more.

✨✧ Curt BoettcherAnother Time ... CD
Sonic Past, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderfully tripped-out work from Curt Boettcher – one of the genius talents behind the group The Millennium, and one of the great unsung production talents that helped shape the sound of late 60s pop. This one takes off from the earlier Millennium work – but also has a bit of a higher concept in the songs, sort of a psyche-pop style to the backings, and a complicated approach to the tracks that make us wish that Boettcher had kept on recording as a solo act during the 70s. Titles include "Share With Me", "That's The Way It's Gonna Be", "Another Time", "The Know It All", "Lament Of The Astral Cowboy", and "Meanwhile Back At The World". CD
(Barcode has a cutout hole. Out of print.)

✨✧ Curt BoettcherCalifornia Music ... CD
Poptones (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare work from the ex-frontman for The Millennium – recorded in LA, with all the sunniness that the title implies! The shift from the simple pop of Boettcher's late 60s work to the smoother, more sophisticated studio groove of the 70s – one that bears traces of America, post-Sunflower Beach Boys, and other groups of that sort – is great to hear, especially if (like us) you don't mind a bit of 70s AM radio in your rock! Production is by LA luminaries Gary Usher, Bruce Johnston, Brian Wilson, and Terry Melcher – and tracks include "Happy In Paradise", "This Is Just to Let You Know", "Iko Iko", "Music Music Music", "I Can Hear Music", "Come Softly", "The Word", and "Love's Supposed To Be This Way".

✨✧ Michael FennellyLane Changer ... CD
Epic/Wounded Bird, 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Solo work from Michael Fennelly – not exactly a household name, but an artist who's well-remembered for his work in Curt Boettcher's Millennium and the later group – getting some strong post-Zombies production work from Chris White, and some extra help on the record from Rod Argent! Fennelly's voice has a nicely escalated range – the sort that's really at home on some of the more screaming rockers, but which also has a way of bringing an edge to some of the more laidback tracks too – which keeps most of the record relatively raw, and not as smooth as similar major label singer/songwriter efforts of the time. Titles include "Flyer", "Bad Times", "Give Me Your Money", "Over My Dead Body", "Won't You Please Do That", and "Lane Changer". CD
