Product Description

Homestead & Wolfe ‎– Our Times

'75 american psych-folk




We're proud to announce the first ever vinyl reissue of HOMESTEAD & WOLFE's lone and excellent album. One of most unknown artifacts that ever came from the american psych-folk land. Originally released in 1975 by TOPO records.

This is an official reissue, fully licenced by Ernie Bringas (H&W founder) and Anopheles Records. It has exact reproduction of the original cover, label, 4-pages insert and poster as well as extra triptych insert with bio and photos signed by Ernie Bringas. Yet, 2 extra tracks are included. It is limited to 450 black and 100 coloured copies. 180gr as usual Graded as R3-R4, that's what ACID ARCHIVES book says about "Our times" LP : Despite being recorded at Gold Star in LA and featuring heavy session names such as Hal Blaine and Al Casey, this irresistable femme-vox melodic folkrock/psych delight has remained mysteriously unknown for 30 years. You'll be hard pressed to find faults with its mix of various late 1960s California styles, ranging from lyte Neighb'rhood Child'n top 40 psych over Carolyn Hester Coalition/Yankee Dollar folk moves into all-out westcoast acidrock a la Ill Wind. The songwriting and arrangements are excellent throughout and come courtesy mainly of the remarkably talented JoAnn Avery, although the entire group contributes most skillfully. The blend of the female vocalists works well in a manner similar to Mamas & the Papas, and indeed the album as a whole plays like something out of one of John Philips' more inspired daydreams. The release year of 1975 seems almost impossible, although traces of a more sombre 1970s mood can be found in the "Soldier Blue"-inspired Indian (and Vietnam) massacre lament of "See The Children Die", and the Nashville-flavored "Rhythm of the wind". I also have to throw in a word for the super-catchy "King Of The Mountain" which is the musical equivalent of a giant smiley face and will send you right back to 1974 and upbeat children TV shows of the era. In general the psychiest stuff such as the twofisted punch of "Your Freedom's In Question" and "I Am Cain" is the best, but the lightest and tradiest moves are agreeable too. "The beat of the drum" is perhaps the ultimate marriage of the band's all strengths into one superb piece of music, including hard raga leads straight out of 1968. Any psych fan not enjoying this album needs to come up with a creative explanation why. [PL] Taken from ACID ARCHIVES book BLACK VINYL
