Voilà presque deux ans que je recherche désespérément une galette originale de cet album, que je considère comme le plus beau trésor caché pop seventies. Un des rares albums pour lesquels je serais prêt à casser ma tirelire. A bon entendeur !
En passant, un grand merci et une éternelle reconnaissance à Monsieur Elbogen.
The McElroy Brothers were identical twin brothers from VT, with a lineup of drums & a battery of keyboards (though acoustic guitar shows up on a track or two). The songs are so well played & arranged that you might not notice that there's no bass on the record - all bass lines are played with the foot pedals. After a lot of close listening, I'm convinced that they both sing, though their vocals are barely distinguishable from each other. The songs are incredibly catchy & could easily pass for 60s pop like Zombies, Bee Gees, etc., until the Moog comes in...apparently 1000 were pressed, and sold well, though it never seems to turn up around here. There was also a single released after the lp. Fantastic, overlooked album & one of my favorite private press finds!
