Intercourse - Tokens

Intercourse
From the depths of the legendary BT Puppy vaults...(a label which seems to have as many "lost albums" as they had hits!)...the very Daddies of Softpop...The Tokens! Though the Tokens are best remembered for their international smash hit "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", recently revived in "The Lion King", they did much more...producers, writers, publishers and label owners, they had a long string of hits in all those roles..."Intercourse" is a full on Softpop song cycle, inexplicably turned down by their then-label Warner Brothers, and released in an edition of 200 copies on their own BT Puppy label for contractual reasons...far from their Doo-Wop roots, The Tokens delivered an album pitched somewhere between Pet Sounds and Sergeant Pepper, with all the production and arrangement tricks that implies...no wonder Warners were dumbfounded!.....and no wonder collectors have been going nuts and paying silly sums for this album ever since!...Newly remastered by The Tokens themselves, this is a surprise treat in anyone's language, as The Tokens show not only every cult Softpop group, but many superstars just how it's done....with the wicked tongue-in -cheek touch which they were justly famous for.

The Complete Constant Companion Sessions
•    THE COMPLETE 1970 SESSIONS!
•    FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!
•    11 PREVIOUSLY-UNRELEASED TRACKS!

When The Association’s ‘Windy,’ reached the #1 position in July 1967, writer Ruthann Friedman didn’t just score a hit single, she also achieved a milestone: Ruthann was only the third female songwriter to compose an American #1 record without the help of a co-writer. In 1999, BMI designated the infectious smash the 61st most played song of the 20th century. But the story doesn’t end there.

Produced in 1969 by JOE WISSERT (The Turtles, Lovin’ Spoonful, Jackie DeShannon) Constant Companion is Ruthann’s only LP during the first chapter of her career. An intimate folk album replete with lysergic lyrical imagery, Constant Companion will intrigue fans of Joni Mitchell and Judee Sill.  

Also included is a full album’s worth of previously-unreleased material cut during the Constant Companion era, which will undoubtedly leave the listener wondering why these tracks were hidden away all these years.

Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

The full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of Ruthann herself!

Produced for reissue by Steve Stanley.

This product is released June 30 2014 and will not be dispatched before this date.
