Strawberry Alarm Clock - Good Morning Starshine (1969 US Psych Rock Prog)


ESTA É UMA BANDA CLÁSSICA DO PSICODELISMO SESSENTISTA!! JÁ É BEM CONHECIDA PELOS ADEPTOS, MAS ESTE DISCO EM PARTICULAR É MUITO RARO E COM UMA SONORIDADE BEM DIFERENTE DO QUE OS SEUS ADEPTOS ESTÃO ACOSTUMADOS!! MAIS TRABALHADO E MUITO MAIS MADURO QUE SEUS OUTROS DISCOS!! MÚSICAS QUE NÃO SÃO ENCONTRADAS EM COLETÂNEAS, A NÃO SER A MAIS FAMOSA DA BANDA QUE FOI INCLUÍDA NA TRILHA SONORA DO FILME HAIR, "GOOD MORNING STARSHINE"!! É UM VENENO ESQUECIDO PELA MÍDIA DESTA BOA BANDA!! RECOMENDADO!!

With this LP the Alarm Clock now had a new sound. Earlier in 1969 Marty Katin was replaced by former member of Thee Sixpence and Strawberry Alarm Clock, Gene Gunnels on drums. The LP features great driving guitars, organ and drums. Not like the previous 3 LP's, this LP is best described as Alarm Clock Rock. Jimmy Pitman's arrival was crucial to the band. He brought in a new sound, a new lead voice and new songs.
This was the first LP since their first to feature of picture of the group on the cover. This would also be the last studio LP the Alarm Clock would ever put out. The playing on this LP is outstanding! On songs like "Hog Child" and "Miss Attraction" the guitars/organ/drums are all over the place. "Small Package" sounds like the SAC of old and the end tag is from "California Girls" by the Beach Boys with whom they toured often with in 1967-1968. "Write Your Name In Gold" and "Dear Joy" are outstanding as well! Soon after this LP's release, Jimmy Pitman would leave to form Jumbo and was replaced by Paul Marshall who had been in The Beauchemins and The Tree Toppers.
