Down in L.A. - Brewer & Shipley

Down in L.A.
A few years before they took that one toke over the line, BREWER & SHIPLEY were hard working staff songwriters for A&M Records’ publishing subsidiary, Good Sam Music. The duo soon after secured a recording contract with A&M, and their debut LP, Down In L.A., was issued in October 1968.

Sounding like a hybrid of the psychedelic country rock of Sweetheart Of The Rodeo-era Byrds, and the studio experimentation of Curt Boettcher’s Millennium/Sagittarius projects, Down In L.A. is finally now being issued on CD for the first time ever.

Coproduced by JERRY RIOPELLE (Phil Spector, The Parade, Beau Brummels), Down In L.A. showcases the talents of many Wrecking Crew members, including Leon Russell, Hal Blaine, Jim Messina, and Jim Gordon.

The 16-page, full-colour booklet includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of Michael Brewer & Tom Shipley, and original co-producer Jerry Riopelle.
SOURCED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES.

Press:-

"Issued in October 1968 and reissued on CD for the first time, Down In LA is an exquisite collection, brimming full of infectious, melodic songs, striking close-harmony vocals, ringing acoustic guitars and crystal-clear production”  

Record Collector May 2012

"Eleven beautifully crafted tracks include the original version of 'Keeper Of The Keys' (recorded by HP Lovecraft) and 'Time And Changes' (The Poor, The Afex) and bring to mind the lush sections of Love's Forever Changes or Spirit's debut. Featuring wrecking crew members Hal Blaine and Leon Russell, the musicianship and song writing are nothing short of sublime."
