$1 today, can't believe this made it out to Cali. Found it in a batch of Dallas Holm and other xian terds. No camera on me at the moment, so here's the pix and description from BeardedD's site:http://www.nothingexceptional.com/records/rarerecords.html"ClearingCame from a Massachusetts store -- could tell you the name but then I'd have to kill you. Got really excited when I saw the cover -- mystical dogs are a good thing. The most exciting thing turned out to be the fact that they came from my hometown of Newton, and two of them are married and still there. Music is, as you would expect, hippie folk from 1973 but sounding earlier. Recording is low-fi and you can hear the rooms where it all went down. Everything is as minimal as possible and it reminds me in places of Fraser and Debolt. Two or three bluegrass-type duds but otherwise a nice example of a moment in time when musical miracles seemed to happen on a daily basis. This is their second album; the first, Who Is In My Temple, was created for a Unitarian church they were involved with at the time."

    Somewhat slim pickings today because of the rain, very few crates but still got a few good ones.

    ---The Counts "Love Sign" not bad, but no Whats Up Front That Counts
    ---Joe Tex "Happy Soul" fucking wacky ass Joe Tex songs
    ---Etta James "At Last" OG on Argo, word up, too bad it has some snap, crackle, pop cause this record's fucking dope
    ---Francoise Hardy "Mon Amour Adieu" french femme folk, yes plaese, the song "Il Est Trop Loin" is dope on this rainy day haunting vocals and spaghetti guitar, word
    ---The World of Good and Plenty "S/T" looks a lot better than it is, but a few good baroque soft psych tracks that I like
    ---The Illusion "S/T" on the Steed label (anyone know this label or anything else on it? price czeck?) the song "I love you, yes I do" is rock awesome, overall a nice psych joint
    ---Maximillian "S/T" find of the day no doubt, take a little Jimmy Hendrix, a little Arthur Lee, put 'em in a bottle, shake it up and out comes this record

    Too lazy to take a picture bloods.

  • ---The Illusion "S/T" on the Steed label (anyone know this label or anything else on it? price czeck?) the song "I love you, yes I do" is rock awesome, overall a nice psych joint

    Don't know who else recorded on the label but Illusion did three LP's on Steed. All really nice and relatively cheap on the bay ($10 area?).

    An Italian - US band, allegedly.

    the Illusion were from Long Island. somewhere online i once found all these live photos of the Illusion playing...really cool looking pics...they were scans of faded old 70s photos.

    I think The Illusion suck. I eradicated them from my collection. Tell us if you like it or not GV, I'm curious.

    "Have You Seen Her Eyes" is the jam though. Love how they go from heavy rock sound directly into a ripoff of "Sing a Simple Song."

    Yeah, I like it so far, not the be all end all of rock albums, but not bad either. I've only heard this album, so I can't comment on the rest of their output, but this one's got a few good tracks.

    I agree with Garcia and Marco, not at all a horrible Lp (s/t). The first one or two songs on the first side I believe (all records are in storage )are worthwhile.

    There was a scene on L.I. between '68 and '74 that evolved into a weird mix of The Rascals meet N.Y. Dolls...bands like Barnabye Bye, Wiggy Bits, American Tears, Truth(although their music always reminded me of a Heckle & Jeckle cartoon soundtrack) and the Illusion......they all made really commercial LP's but were much better "live"......it's definitely the "Long Island Sound" from that period.

    I like how "Have You Seen Her Eyes" is one of those
    tracks where the LP version is like 7 minutes long,
    with extended solos and funky breakdowns, and works
    as an awesome hard rock jam track - and the 45
    version is a 2:30 edit, but works equally as
    well as a tough, quick slice of radio pop/rock.
