Blue Things - Listen & See - LP

Blue Things - Listen & See - LP

Record Details:


The band started out releasing singles on independent (private) labels around 1964/65 with a strong Searchers/early Beatles flavor. Eventually they evolved into a tight folk-rock band that strongly recalled Help/Rubber Soul era Beatles. Val Stocklein wrote most of the compositions and his vocals are a world weary mixture of Gene Clark and Help-era John Lennon. They released their only self-titled album (commonly referred to as Listen and See) in 1966 and by this time, the band had already been experimenting with a psychedelic sound. The album is one of folk-rock's highlights. A single released from the album, Doll House/Man On The Street was spectacular. Both songs dealt with subjects uncommon for rock in that era (or any era), prostitution and social injustice. They are both characterized by glittering guitars, thoughtful lyrics, great harmonies, tambourine and a driving beat. There is no doubt that this was one of the defining moments of the folk-rock revolution. Other album tracks highlighted the group's influences. 'Honor The Hearse' was very Dylan-like but still effective while 'High Life,' 'I Must Be Doing Something Wrong,' 'It Ain't No Big Thing Babe' and 'Now's The Time' were also really strong, classy folk-rockers.
