Posted on 06 February 2016

LOST TREASURES GRAPEFRUIT “Around Grapefruit” By Peter Marston [linebreak style=”25.png”] Most pop fans have at least a basic familiarity with the bands that were signed to Apple Records in the late ’60s and no doubt those bands profited greatly from that connection, at least in terms of buzz and profile. Nearly everyone knows Badfinger, Mary […]

LOST TREASURES – The Carnival

Posted on 27 January 2016

LOST TREASURES THE CARNIVAL “The Carnival” By Peter Marston [linebreak style=”25.png”] The Carnival is a charming cross between the Fifth Dimension and Sergio Mendes and Brasil ’66, offering the rich vocal arrangements of the former against the soft, lulling rhythms of the latter. When I first came upon the album, I thought it fairly obscure […]
