October Country - October Country

October Country
So here it is...the long awaited, long anticipated release of October Country, one of the prime collectable projects of legendary producer Michael Lloyd Michael Lloyd is in some ways a mysterious figure...child prodigy surfrocker...Kim Fowley protégé...member of The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, house producer for Tower Records, vice president of MGM Records at 23, producer of hits for artists from The Osmonds to Leif Garrett, and involved in some of the most awesomely collectable softpop/ psychedelic rarities of all time! This much sought after album by little-known LA act October Country includes as much input from Lloyd and his usual collaborators as it does from the band themselves, on a set of songs mostly written by Lloyd..rendering the group's own roots as a We Five-ish folkpop group completely unrecognisable! A superb piece of classic psychpop, done in tandem with the soundtrack to Steven Spielberg's first movie "Amblin'", featuring many of the same musicians.....this is in many ways the companion piece to the legendary Tower Records album by The Smoke (effectively a Lloyd solo album), and some of it's songs reappear in punkier versions on the soundtrack to early 1970's cartoon The Cattanooga Cats..sung by bubblegum king Joey Levine, softpop beauty Melody Clinger, and the unlikely figure of Rupert Holmes....but that's another story! A snapshot of a genius at work, and of the Sunset Strip pop scene of the 1960's!! This is its first time ever on CD! Included are the mono single mixes all in the usual Rev-Ola state of the art remastering! Plus a lavish package with detailed notes by Steve Stanley. Michael Lloyd is a legend....from his days in The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band to his mega-success as a pop producer....and this is a must for all collectors of softpop, psychpop, and 1960's West Coast music in general!
