Sunshine Pop, Psychedelic, Baroque Pop

A strange release from the much-loved producer and composer which sees him finding a place that mixes up varying degrees of soft rock, country-pop, and doo wop into a fine, if a bit uneven, listen. The best track on the album is "I Love You More Each Day," with its folk strumming and '70s melodic pop approach. Unsurprisingly, this song is one of the three tracks Boettcher is listed as actually having written on the album. To be sure, there is no shortage of the multi-layered harmonies Boettcher is renowned for.

Japanese original release. Box set release from The Millennium consisting 8 CDs featuring unreleased tracks of the band, each member's solo works (Curt Boettcher, Sandy Salisbury, Lee Mallory), the first album "Begin," and a rare album "Pieces." This edition features cardboard sleeve jacket, the latest remastering, and the high-fidelity Blu-spec CD format (compatible with standard CD players). Comes with a Japanese edition booklet and lyrics. Influenced by psychedelia and California rock, pop/rock producer Curt Boettcher (the Association) decided to assemble a studio supergroup who would explore progressive sounds in 1968. Millennium's resultant album would find no commercial success and only half-baked artistic success, but nonetheless retains some period charm.

All 11 tracks from the 1967 LP, with the addition of seven previously unreleased items and a couple cuts from non-LP singles. Although the production is beautiful and the songwriting melodic, the material is really too cloying to qualify this as a lost classic. When there's even a bit of a serious or melancholic edge — as on the graceful opening track "Another Time," or Gary Usher's strange and stunning slice of psych-pop, "The Truth Is Not Real" — it's much more memorable. Otherwise, this is kind of like the lesser fairy-tale, sing-songy British psychedelia of the time, but with state-of-the-art L.A. '60s production. The bonus cuts are similar to the album, highlighted by the gorgeous instrumental "Sister Marie," although the non-LP single "Hotel Indiscreet" is silly fluff.

Brewer & Shipley are mostly known for their 1968 psychedelic folk-pop and country-rock album 'Down In L.A.', which sounds like a mixture of 'Sweetheart Of The Rodeo'-era Byrds and Curt Boettcher's Sagittarius and Millennium projects. This remastered disc contains radio broadcast recordings of the duo performing live and unplugged at the A&R Recordings Studios in NYC, 1971.

Captured in the act here are Lamonte McLemore, Ron Townson, Billy Davis, Jr., Marilyn McCoo, and Florence LaRue during an early-'70s stint on the Vegas Strip, in the main room of Caesar's Palace. The performance offers an adequate sampling of the 5D's classics and concurrent pop songs that attendees would likely be familiar with.

Repressing of this UK collection. MC Squared-featuring folk renegades from the Back Porch Majority, as well as legendary studio musicians Jim Keltner and Randy Sterling-recorded four exciting singles for Reprise Records during 1967 and 1968. Sounding like a unique hybrid of the Mamas and the Papas and Jefferson Airplane, the Los Angeles-based quintet failed to generate commercial success, and as a result their long-lost 1968 album has since been confined to the vaults…

Crabby Appleton will always be remembered for their fantastic Go Back’ single, a brooding slice of power pop that reached #36 in June 1970. The band's debut album released on Elektra Records at the same time was a fairly diverse mix of harder rock statements and delicate tunes (sometimes recalled the baroque-pop of late 6o’s The Zombies or the Left Banke), although touches of psychedelic jamming (in early The Doors/Iron Butterfly vein) and classical-influenced Hammond organ passages (similar to The Nice) could be heard as well. It's worth noting that 2 years earlier vocalist Michael Fennelly was a part of Millennium band, the sunshine pop-psych project whose ‘Begin’ album has since garnered enormous cult recognition.
