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!

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 The 16-page, full-colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of original band members and Bones Howe.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

The Association

Released in August 1969, The Association (often referred to as the "Stonehenge” album) marks another turning point in the band’s storied career. They opted to co-produce the eponymous album with JOHN BOYLAN (Appletree Theater, Rick Nelson, The Dillards) and play on most of the tracks themselves as they had done on their sophomore LP, Renaissance. The result was a more mature and highly diverse effort showcasing country rock, hard rock, R&B, and soft pop, all featuring the signature harmonic blend they were beloved for.
The Association, a Billboard #32 charting album, features 10 bonus tracks, including non-LP singles, and rare mono single versions. Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

The full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of original band members!
