Waterbeds In Trinidad - Association

Waterbeds In Trinidad
Hey, everybody loves The Association! "Along Comes Mary", "Windy", "Never My Love", "Cherish". Their lush harmonic pop provided an alternative soundtrack to the late '60s and their string of nine Warner Brothers albums between 1966 and 1971 represent a body of work unsurpassed by their peers. It might be surprising to discover, therefore, that as late as 1972 they were still making top quality music, albeit for a new label, Columbia. Their version of "Darling Be Home Soon" may have failed to crack the US charts after a run of 12 hit singles but it's probably the best Lovin' Spoonful cover of them all (and that's saying something!). The accompanying album, Waterbeds In Trinidad, was the last long-player cut by the original group and has an undeniable elegiac quality to it. They tackle John Stewart's "Little Road And A Stone To Roll" and Goffin & King's "Snow Queen" alongside the usual array of original compositions, mostly composed by returning prodigal son and founder member Jules Alexander. An overlooked jewel in the Association's crown, it's about time this album was recognised by a wider audience overlooked gem from these archetypal Californian soft pop legends! Rmastered from the master tapes in the usual breath-taking Rev-Ola style! rand new liner notes by soft pop queen Dawn Eden!

Birthday
Released on 29/03/10. To many of The Association s fans, Birthday, their fourth studio album, ranks as the group s very best offering. The Billboard Pop #23 LP sported a Top 10 single, Everything That Touches You , and the Top 40 hit, Time For Livin’ Birthday was a transitional album that found the band and their producer Bones Howe at odds with each other. The group desired more representation of their original compositions, and their insistence on this resulted in the most lushly produced effort the band ever recorded. The 16-page, full-colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of original band members and Bones Howe. Our Price: £9.95

Winds Of Change
In these more cynical times, it is easy to see this seminal album in a somewhat ambivalent light...everybody's favourite Geordie hell-raiser, Eric Burdon caught on the cusp between being Britain's Blues-meister supreme and being Hitler out of the producers?! Yet there is so much more here, two international hit singles, garage blues and psychedelic jams to match anyone. Produced by bizarrely unsung dylan/zappa/velvets producer tom wilson. This is as amazing a forgotten gem as the 2 albums them made on tower around the same time! Our Price: £9.95
