Comments

Promo stamp on the back side of the cover, as well as gold promo label.

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

Inside The Groove

A pretty mixture of Pop and Garage sound by famous songwriting brothers.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Pat & Lolly Vegas, a famous songwriting brothers (they provided their tunes to P.J. Proby, Dobie Gray etc.). But at the same time they recorded their own album. After they left their first album on Del-Fi label, they moved to Mercury label and recorded this album.

The cover design may suggest that this album features fully psychedelic taste, but to tell the truth the contents are mainly a mixture of Pop sound and Garage flavour. Still they sounds nice. Six original tunes and six famous cover tunes. Not so really awesome, but rather nice :)

By the way, Pat Vegas and Lolly Vegas later became famous - for this Vegas brothers later formed a Indian rock band “Redbone”.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

7 out of 10
