West Coast Pop Art Experimental BandVol 3 – A Childs Guide To Good & Evil (mono – blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Jackpot, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 25.99
The continuing genius of the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – a group who are certainly as experimental as their name would imply, but who can also come across with some warmer Sunshine Pop touches too! And it's that which makes the group so wonderful – the blend of freak and sweet, of fuzz and fun – all given a special shape in the studio through the genius of producer Jimmy Bowen, whose work here with Bob Markley is superb – and very much open to the best freedoms that Warner was offering its creative talents at the time! The song titles are equally superb – and titles include "A Child's Guide To Good & Evil", "Ritual #1", "Anniversary of World War III", "Eighteen Is Over The Hill", "As Kind As Summer", and "Our Drummer Always Plays In the Nude". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono version – on blue vinyl! Limited edition.)

West Coast Pop Art Experimental BandWest Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Volume 2 (mono – purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 25.99
The amazing second album from this ultra-cool group – a set that's even weirder and wilder than their debut! The trio are maybe one of the few who really live up to the farthest expectations of the psych generation – as they're really open to let their minds fly in their choice of lyrics, instrumentation, and overall presentation of the record – which hardly seems the sort to yield any sort of singles at all, even though a few of the tunes are downright catchy! Instead, the whole thing's put forth as a dark statement on late 60s society – with a sound that's as heavy as the subject matter, and not afraid to really pus all the freak and fuzz as far as it can go! Quite surprising, even for the Reprise label – and tracks include "Queen Nymphet", "Tracy Had a Hard Day Sunday", "In the Arena", "Smell of Incense", "Suppose They Gave A War & No One Comes", "Overture Wcpaeb (part 2)", and "Carte Blanche" – which supposedly they were given in recording the album! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ West Coast Pop Art Experimental BandWest Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Part One (mono – orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The initial uttering from the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – a group with a heady sound that definitely lives up to their name! There's less "pop art" going on here than just trippy psych – served up at a level that makes the group one of the best bigger label examples of the style at the time – and definitely a lot more edgey than some of their labelmates on Warner. Jimmy Bowen produced, but really keeps all the edges intact – and titles include the completely insane "Help I'm A Rock" (actually about a rock calling for help!) – plus "Shifting Sands", "1906", "Transparent Day", "Here's Where You Belong", and "If You Want This Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousHallucinations – Psychedelic Pop Nuggets From The WEA Vaults ... CD
Rhino Handmade, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wonderfully tripped-out pop from the late 60s – served up by a few famous names and an even better band of lesser-knowns – all of whom recorded for Warner Brothers and related labels at the time! The package does a great job of showing the "pop" side of psychedelia – a sound that's a lot harder than the Sunshine Pop end of the spectrum, but which also shares a similar love of groovy themes, sweet vocals, and cool production techniques! A few of the tunes get a bit way out, but most of the numbers manage to pack a whole trip's punch within a short little 3 or 4 minute song – leaving us to marvel even more at the deft economy in the studio, and the wonderful quality this kind of music had before it succumbed to too many of its own excesses. Titles include "Her Name Is A Melody" by Adrian Pride, "It's Love" by The Misty Wizards, "Break Away" by Next Exit, "Hallucinations" by Baker Knight & The Knightmares, "Your Love Belongs To Everyone" by The Coronados, "That's The Way It's Gonna Be" by Lee Mallory, "Wildflowers" by The Holy Mackerel, "Smell Of Incense" by West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, "My Mind Goes High" by MC2, "Straight Aero" by Jeff Thomas, and "The White Pony" by Ellen Margulies.

✨✧ VariousHeroes & Villains – The Sound Of Los Angeles 1965 to 1968 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A deep dive into the sound of Los Angeles in the middle of the 60s – a really well-done box that somehow manages to mix together all the different strains of music that were going on in the city of angels at the time – sunshine pop, garage rock, psych, pop, and even more experimental modes – served up here in a set list that's full of some of the coolest, hippest groups of the time! The box takes its title from a Beach Boys tune, but this isn't a set of well-played oldies from AM radio – and instead, the selection demonstrates the continued appreciation of this period of music over the decades, and the shift in interest to some of the more groundbreaking, obscure groups of the period – served up here with bigger names as well – all with the detailed notes and overflowing amount of tracks that we love from these boxes on the Grapefruit label! There's a massive 90 tracks in all – with work from Mark Eric, Jim & The Lords, The Heroes, Candy Company, Odds & Ends, Spirit, The Misunderstood, Urban Renewal Project, Peanut Butter Conspiracy, Captain Beefheart, Ruthann Friedman, The Rogues, Music Machine, Whatt Four, Velvet Illusions, Merrell & The Xiles, Sanctions, Grass Roots, New Wave, West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Grains Of Sand, Merry Go Round, Human Expression, Love, Laughing Wind, Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends, Boystown, Gene Clark, and many others!

✨✧ Shaun HarrisShaun Harris ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Surprisingly sweet pop from Shaun Harris – once a member of the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, but here stepping out as a solo act with a really great sound of his own! The format here is sweet, simple, and a great representation of the way that Sunshine and folksy styles of the 60s hit a more compressed, adult approach in the early 70s – and while the album's got a slightly polished LA feel, it still also retains a good deal of honesty and personality, a good example of that very brief time when 60s artists grew up on the LA scene, but hadn't yet succumbed to AOR excesses. Most vocals are produced in a nice spacey way that only further emphasizes their sweetness – and titles include "Empty Without You", "I'll Cry Out", "Underachiever", "Color Of Your Eyes", "Today's A Day", "Highest Dreams", and "Love Has Gone Away". CD features the bonus single mix of "I'll Cry Out". CD

✨✧ SmokeSmoke ... CD
Capitol/Kismet, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Pop psychedelia from The Smoke – their self-titled set and a magical mix of soaring pop songcraft and fairly grand production from the combo featuring Michael Lloyd of West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band! Wonderful stuff that could have gotten over much bigger in the mainstream – the harmonies are sweet and the string arrangements are pretty wonderful, too – but neither take anything away from an eccentric sensibility. Wierdness done with an ear for melodies. Greatness! Titles include "Cowboys & Indians", "Looking Thru The Mirror", "The Hobbit Symphony", "Fogbound", "Ritual Gypsy Music Opus I", "Odyssey" and more.
