Of all the known or rumoured "lost" albums from the odd pop era when everyone wanted a go at a Superpop classic a la Brian Wilson, (and more succeeded than one might think) this is perhaps the most thoroughly lost....as the only essay in this style by the artist, it was a case of never before and never again!..... Richard and Tom Martin were mainstays of The Art Collection aka Powder, America's closest shot at the Pop-Art sound of The Who or The Creation.....after a number of classic (and now ruinously expensive!) singles failed to set the charts alight, a change of direction was clearly called for…
Calling themselves Thomas and Richard Frost, the brothers signed to Imperial Records and made a number of classic pop singles, some of which indeed hit the lower reaches of the charts....all in preparation for their masterwork, "Visualize".....unfortunately, reorganisation at Imperial after their acquisition by Liberty Records meant the album was cancelled....at such a late stage that production masters complete with catalogue number and half-completed artwork have languished in the vaults until now.....Tom and Rich's next project was an accomplished country-rock album for UNI Records.....the breathtaking pop experiment of "Visualize" remaining a closed chapter.....until now..
