"Loose Salute" by Michael Nesmith. A country-rock masterpiece from one of its pioneers.
Love that peddle steel.

The Ark by Chad & Jeremy.

Anyone heard this pop psych masterpiece? I guess Gary Usher
got fired by Columbia for allowing the boys to have an unlimited budget to produce this.
The wonderful cover painting is a classic! (google it of you haven't seen it)

Ya, it's a good psych LP, rocker.... & yes, the cover is worth the price...such great 60's art....that's a good insight & likely, as C&J have some political/social issues covered in this,
AND one I don't have (supposed to be even better psych, though both are period masterpieces) C&J's "Of Cabbages & Kings".....a title mocking Brit royalty, to be sure.
I'm listening to The Ark right now & it's a real grabber! ("Cold Gray Morning" is a very sad
song about the assassination of RFK.....I guess Jeremy & others working for RFJ's campagne got a threat just after RFK was shot...a postcard saying "The same goes for you.." chilling....)

Here is C&J's page.....with some great videos from the 60's including a cameo on the Patty
Duke Show! It a great site with Jeremy still active on the messageboard.

"The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things. Of
shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings. And why
the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings." That one,
of course, a bit of Jabberwocky between the walrus and the carpenter,
from the pen of Sir Lewis Carroll, of "Alice in Wonderland," and "Through
the Looking Glass," circa 1872 or so, which most of us who survived the
mind altering sixties are still quite familiar with. Ask Grace about that hookah
smoking caterpillar or ask Country Joe "Who are you?" Or just go ride those
tea cups at Disneyland....

Ya, RW! I'd forgotten Lewis Carroll. I still read his work with wonder. What a trip......
Donovan did an innovative reading of The Walrus & The Carpenter on his H.M.S. Donovan
LP that those in the UK are likely more familiar with (Sir Paul did a little cameo).
A great LP all round. Go ask Alice...... So many references to Carroll's work by so
many artists of psychedelic music. I wonder how many. Carroll & Tolkien took up a lot
of LP space.

Good one. The guys that everyone thought Chad & Jeremy were....ouch.
No wonder C & J went psychedelic; to avoid the confusion? or musical growth.....

i've thought that C&J were Peter & Gordon lite.
i love the beautiful accoustic guitars of P&G records and the recording values, putting the plucked notes way up in the mix.
i have those 3 cds, of 2 albums each, on the Collectables Label.
now, i want the last album they did, " hot cold mustard" ('68)!
and did anyone know that Gordon did a solo album in the early '70s, titled, "Gordon" ?
"a world without love", is a song that i loved since i first heard it in 1964, and is one of those sountracks of my life.
it's interesting that another of my favorites of similar vibes, is, "Bad To Me", from Billy J. Kramer & The Dakotas, was ALSO, written by Lennon/Mccartney! CHEERS!

Strangely enough, I was thinking about this one only the other day. It really is a testament to Lennon-McCartney that they wrote so many songs for others which for one reason or another, they chose not to release themselves. Other favourites of mine are:

Nobody I Know - Peter and Gordon
Hello Little Girl - The Fourmost
It's For You - Cilla Black (this one has a superb George Martin piano solo that seems to sum up everything that was exciting about the early 60s)

You could once get all these (and about 15 others) on an LP entitled The Songs That Lennon and McCartney Gave Away ......but I don't think it was ever given a CD release.
