Present Tense
Released 29/06/09. Revola proudly presents one of the major artyfacts of the album with possibly the most beautiful soundscapes ever committed to tape, the sound of universal love! Virtually a collaboration between Gary Usher and Curt Boettcher, both in their own right near-geniuses of pop-psych the album also features a plethora of stars and strange bedfellows, from The Firesign Theatre to The Millennium, from Glen Campbell to The Wrecking Crew, from Beach Boy Bruce Johnston to future Bread man Jimmy Griffin, yep, they are all well as an extensively remastered version of the original 1968 relase, the CD features a whole raft of single mixes (so radically different), out-takes and demos, pretty much doubling the length of your immersion in this wonderful experience... Anyone who does not love or indeed fall in love to this album must have a shrunken heart! Our Price: £9.95
