Beacon Street Union - The Clown Died In Marvin Gardens

Mr Simon Reynolds joins in the psych fest. He suggests this, another good bit of daggy Boston psychedelia from 1968. These guys were part of the phoney Bosstown Sound scene along with Ultimate Spinach and Orpheus. It starts out as a tepid Love rip off but then a flute enters and by the end a nifty little guitar break emerges creating a noice mini psych freak out.

  1. Sounds pretty good to me. Like a mixture of Jethro Tull, The Cowsills, and Love (I love, Love). Plus the audio production of wide stereo seperation of the time. Nothing daggy here, arguably.
