Excursions - Tradewinds (The)

Excursions
The Tradewinds were one of those groups...strikingly classic yet little known outside their one much covered mega hit... New York's A Lonely Town was kind of the record that shut down (see what I did there?) the Surf/Hotrod craze pioneered by The Beach Boys and Jan And Dean with a wistful eulogy to a lonely surfer stuck in NYC...yet Peter Anders and Vincent Poncia had been hitmakers since the second wave doo wop days....and had worked with Phil Spector writing such classics as The Best Part Of Breaking Up for The Ronettes among many others and producing such classics as Bonnie And The Treasures Home Of The Brave on Philles... Tradewinds album was far more than the mopping up of available material and a hit single one might suspect, being actually a breathtaking run though 1965/66 pop, a masterclass in fact, a highlight being the proto psychpop of Mind Excursion . Later in 1966 they changed their name to The Innocence, recorded a full-length eponymous album and continued in much the same vein of supremely well crafted pop.
