EIDETIC PHASES: THE SPECTRUM - RCA VICTOR SINGLES 1967-68

12/8/2018
More

EIDETIC PHASES: BOBBY DARIN - ATLANTIC SINGLES 1966-67

12/7/2018
More
Bobby Darin's singles during 1966-67 period were of a very high standard and his choice of material may surprise many listeners more used to his earlier recordings. He laid down numbers by Tim Hardin, John Sebastian and Gordon/Bonner. His own songs "I Am" and "Amy" hidden away on B-sides are worthy too. "If I Were A Carpenter" / "Rainin'" 1966 "Reason To Believe" / "The Girl That Stood Beside Me" 1966 "Lovin' You" / "Amy" 1967 "The Lady Came From Baltimore" / "I Am" 1967 "At The...

11/25/2018
More
The Troggs released four singles in 1967, excluding "My Lady" (Page One POF 022) which was hastily withdrawn. Some copies reached the market but I don't have one. They rounded off the year with a top five hit, hidden on the B-Side of this romantic love ballad is a mind-bending psychedelic nugget written by Ronnie Bond. Indeed, when will the rain come.

EIDETIC PHASES: JOHN WALKER - PHILIPS SINGLES 1966-69

11/24/2018
More
John Walker's solo career can be best described as unsuccessful considering that The Walker Brothers enjoyed such acclaim in Britain during the mid 60s. His records have various styles from orchestrated pop ballads, country and even a hint of the Carribean on his final disc in 1969. He recorded songs by Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan and Graham Nash who co-wrote "Annabella" his only hit, reaching #24 in 1967. "Sunny" / "Come Rain Or Come Shine" (Philips BE 125970) 1966 "Annabella" / "You Don't...
