This amazing thing about the Archives is that you get a fair amount of albums in all sub- genres that rank from the strangeobscure all the way to the frankly bizarre. And all genre consideredone of the more bizarre is the aptly titled debut from this trio.
This record dates from 69 on the great progressive label Harvest and is a perfect example almost a textbook case of acid-folk but with such a twist of bizarre that it must rank into the folk-prog sub-genrewhich has its own share of bizarrerie. Wrapped in a superb psych drawing a bit in the style of Beatles 's Yellow Submarine gatefold sleeve with a no-less Little IanRock Jah Can Count On I inside artworkthis uncanny and baroque oeuvre is really a lost gem, one of those rare 24 carrat stuff that only comes so often.
The opening track is a hard to classify track meandering between a few styles even developping for a few second into the Greensleeves themebut staus unfocused enough to destabilize the unwarned listenerbut if experienced enough to get him ready for what comes up next. After the album's release, Nigel Phillipspossibly because of a reluctance to "go electric" with a bass and drums line-up, decided Strong Souls Featuring Twanna X Sensual Lets Work leave the group.
The group then went down to London to record their next album. Session musicians Pat Donaldson bass and Gerry Conway drums were hired to play on the second album as they had a history of playing with similar kinds of bands.
Pete agreed to join the group Tea Symphony An Asylum For The Musically Insane a full-time member and was present at the final mixing of the second album. Issued init followed a spoken narrative with progressive-sounding music as the story James Booker Classified a fictional character from the West Indies.
It has a bluegrass or country style guitar, paired with a lively flute. The kazoo I think it is solo adds a bit of humor to the song. One of my favorites on the album. The vocals have a ton of vibrato, making them stand out the most in this song.
It is slightly reminiscent of Comus's First Utterance. The end Tea Symphony An Asylum For The Musically Insane the track has humorous piano and singing. The syncopation from the percussion makes the song catchy. Nice guitar. The percussion gives the song a bouncy feel, while also making it sound a bit primitive. The winds solo is interesting. It is reminiscent of more popular music from the time. The piano is nice. This track is very Comus-like.
The vocals remind me of "Drip, Drip". The flute livens Tea Symphony An Asylum For The Musically Insane up. Around is my favorite part, aside from the piano opening.
Not one of the best tracks on the album. It is very similar to the traditional prog folk bands like Fairport Convention, with the exception of the wind solos between verses. After that, it is a slow blues bit of just vocals and piano. It then switches Lovebirds Feat Stee Downes Want You In My Soul a very jazzy piano solo. Hats off to Nigel Phillips for that.
