The Seeds - Fallin' Off The Edge (1965-67 US Garage Psych Rock)



UM DOS LPs MAIS RAROS DA BANDA E QUE NOS APRESENTA UMA COMPILAÇÃO DE RARIDADES, TAKES ALTERNATIVOS DE MUSICAS MAIS CONHECIDAS EM VERSÕES SUPERFICIALMENTE DIFERENTES DAS ORIGINAIS!! A SONORIDADE AQUI É GARAGEM BLUESY PSYCH DE PRIMEIRA LINHA!! ESSE FOI UM DOS PRIMEIROS LPs QUE ADQUIRI DA BANDA E O MESMO AINDA NÃO FOI REEDITADO EM CD!! VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO PRA QUEM GOSTA DA BANDA E DO ESTILO!!

This is GNP Crescendo '77. collection of outakes and non-LP singles trax recorded circa 66/67. The title track to this collection of rarities and alternate takes, "Fallin' off the Edge (Of My Mind)," is, improbably enough, a psychedelic hoe-down. Literally. Sure, the lyrics are suitably mind-bending, but Jan Savage's guitar playing is pure country. It works in spite of itself, but is hardly representative of the rest of the material (it's the only song co-written by Kim Fowley). It also proves that, contrary to popular belief, the Seeds did have other musical interests beyond psych, garage, and blues. "Daisy Mae," the B-side to "Can't Seem to Make You Mine," is another oddity. In it, Sky Saxon (b. Richard Marsh) wraps his wavery, sandpaper-edged tenor around an R&B number that sounds like a cross between Buddy Holly and Little Richard. The other numbers adhere to a more traditional psych standard. They include alternate versions of "Wind Blows Your Hair" (plus a reprise), "Nobody Spoil My Fun," and "Pushin' Too Hard," their signature hit. Although there's no topping their first two releases, Seeds and Web of Sound, fans are sure to find Fallin' off the Edge of interest.
