VA -Free Flight (Unreleased Dove Recording Studio Cuts 1964-69)

The Dowlands - All My Loving

During the late '50s, David Dowland and Gordon Dowland were a harmony vocal duo from Bournemouth who were basically known as Everly Brothers imitators, similar to the Brook Brothers. Their sound was toughened up by the presence of a backing group that included Roy Phillips on guitar and drummer Chris Warman, and they were good enough to get signed up in 1962 by producer Joe Meek -- their debut recording, "Little Sue" b/w "Julie," was issued by Oriole Records, which released a string of follow-ups, including "Big Big Fella," "Breakups," and "Lucky Johnny," none of which were successful. By the end of 1963, the Dowlands were in a difficult bind -- they'd been emulating the Everly Brothers' sound professionally for years and were falling short commercially, while the Beatles, who also owed a great deal to the Everlys, were reshaping the music landscape around them. However, in 1964 -- rather late in the game from a British perspective -- the group reluctantly jumped on the bandwagon, finally getting onto the British charts for nearly two months with their cover of the Lennon-McCartney song "All My Loving." Indeed, that record became the group's first and only U.S. single when it was picked up for release on the Tollie label. As a result, they enjoyed a year of better bookings, especially on package tours throughout England, and a follow-up single might've given them the boost they needed to continue, but none was forthcoming. Meek later also produced their versions of "I Walk the Line," "Wishin' and Hopin'," and "Don't Make Me Over," the latter two of which were eclipsed by rival recordings by the Merseybeats and the Swinging Blue Jeans. Roy Phillips co-founded the Peddlers in 1964, and by the second half of the 1960s Keith Dowland had ceased performing regularly, though David Dowland kept working intermittently for another 20 years.

Orange Colored Sky - Orange Colored Sky (1968)

ORANGE COLORED SKY’s roots go back to 1962, when Larry Younger formed The Fabulous Epics in Erie, PA. The Epics soon moved to New York City and became the house band at the world–famous Peppermint Lounge. Years later, Tom Hanks would call them The Wonders and tell their story in his film ‘That Thing You Do’.
The Younger Brothers (soon to become Orange Colored Sky) meet the Beatles at the Peppermint Lounge

Front row, L-R : George Harrison, John Lennon
Back row, L-R : Larry Younger, Walter Slivinski, Vinny Younger, Paul McCartney.

In 1968 the band moved to Southern California, was signed by Universal, and became ORANGE COLORED SKY. SKY hit big in Los Angeles, appearing in the movie "The Love God" with Don Knotts, in TV commercials with Petula Clark, on The Steve Allen Show, and in all the hot clubs. SKY soon became regulars at the Flamingo, Harrah's, and other major venues in Las Vegas, Reno, and Lake Tahoe.
In 1970 SKY replaced The Carpenters as Burt Bacharach's opening act. SKY also toured with Frank Sinatra and assisted Governor Ronald Reagan's re-election campaign.
SKY released the 45 RPM single "Help" in the early 1970's on the People label, but it was the B side, "Press A Rose", that placed on the national charts. Larry Younger and Tony Barry shared lead vocals; unfortunately, Larry's funky, soulful performance couldn't overcome People Records' business problems.
"Press A Rose" (PEOPLE 1007-B) was well on its way up the Billboard Hot 100 when the company declared bankruptcy.
Legendary producer Don Costa then brought SKY to MGM records, under the direction of future California Lieutenant Governor Mike Curb. At MGM, SKY recorded “Simon Zealotes” from the rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar”, arranged by Don Costa and released to U.S. radio stations three months prior to the appearance of the "Superstar" national cast album. The first eight bars of SKY's version of “Simon Zealotes” are unlike any other pop recording.
Bassist/vocalist Larry Parker joined SKY in 1974. By the 1980's many showrooms had been replaced by discotheques and SKY slowly disbanded.
The band reunited in the early 1990’s, and now includes bandleader Michael Chanslor (Susan Anton's longtime keyboardist / vocalist / conductor / arranger), bassist / vocalist Larry Parker, drummer / vocalist Dennis Edwards (formerly with Eric Burdon and Eddie Money), and guitarist / vocalist Tom Bethke. SKY founding member Larry Younger still makes an occasional guest appearance.
In 2005, ORANGE COLORED SKY is still rockin’, performing classic “feel-good” surf and rock music. SKY’s ‘Beach Boys Tribute’ continues to win new fans of all ages, and SKY is known to Southern California sports fans for their unique, a cappella performances of the “The Star–Spangled Banner” for the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center and for the Mighty Ducks at Arrowhead Pond.
ORANGE COLORED SKY appears with Jay Black (of Jay & the Americans) in Billy Crystal's “My Giant”, and can be seen and heard in the Academy Award-nominated film "Ghost World" starring Steve Buscemi and Thora Birch.

Jeff Beck & The Big Town Playboys - Crazy Legs

Jeff Beck has made many strange albums, but none were ever quite as strange as this. With the Big Town Playboys offering support, Beck rips through 18 Gene Vincent numbers (not "Be-Bop-a-Lula," however), paying tribute to Vincent's guitarist, Cliff Gallup. Beck sounds terrific as he reconstructs Gallup's parts, but he doesn't add anything to the originals. Still, Crazy Legs is a fun listen and offers many insights into Beck's playing, if not Gallup's. 

Fresh Air - A Breath Of Fresh Air (1969)


"Fresh Air's A Breath Of Fresh Air, recorded in 1969 at Sunwest Studios in Hollywood, is the rarest album to appear on the Amaret label. A highly-sought after album by collectors, A Breath Of Fresh Air is a fine mix of pop and hard psych, featuring some driving, heavy guitar and lots of swirling organ.

Fresh Air, a tight quintet of superb musicians led by lead vocalist Marc Piscitelli's, performs 10 well recorded and beautifully delivered tracks. Piscitelli's haunting vocal style shines throughout this excellent album, and it is hardly surprising that the singer went on to enjoy a career as an engineer and a backing vocalist for such luminaries as Glen Campbell, Juice Newton, Spirit and John Travolta. A Breath Of Fresh Air is another undiscovered gem, reissued for the first time by Radioactive Records."

Recorded in 1969 in Hollywood and originally released on the Amaret label.The album is a fine mix of pop and hard psychedelic rock featuring some driving heavy guiitars and swirling keybords. Includes a fast paced cover of "For What It's Worth".

The Troll - Animated Music (1968)


 The Trolls from Chicago are one of the many bands that we've had a long time interest in but, unfortunately, have had difficulty in tracking down.  We recently made contact, however, with bassist Max Jordan, Jr. (and his wife Bonnie), Rick (Richard) Gallagher and part-time drummer Gary Aull, and hope to be able to provide additional information on the group - as well as answer many of the questions raised in this feature - sometime in the near future.  In the meantime, and in lieu of our customary interview, we've decided to print this overview of the band's recordings to spark some discussion on a very talented and underrated band.

Richard Clark - organ, vocals
Richard Gallagher - guitar, vocals
Max Jordan, Jr. - bass, vocals
Ken Cortese (aka Ken Apples) - drums

07 Have You Seen The Queen

09 Winter's Song

"The Troll's sole album is extremely diverse late-'60s psychedelia. It's one of those records you can play over and over again without getting a grip on what exactly the group identity is. For many bands, such a description might be interpreted as a major compliment. The thing is, though, it's not a record you want to play over and over again, because the material isn't that good, and the eclecticism is not so much admirable versatility as contrived freakiness. At various times they sniff around hard rock, fruity pop-psychedelia, arch vaudevillian good-time music ("Professor Pott's Pornographic Projector" and "Have You Seen the Queen?"), and slightly bittersweet folk-rock-flavored pop-psych. The influences of Beatlesque melody and vocal harmonies are strongly felt at times, and there are some periodic interjections of the kind of varispeed vocals and odd effects that major labels only tolerated for a few years or so around the late '60s. There are glints of appealing fairytale aura pop-psychedelia here and there, as on "A Winter's Song," with its pseudo-British orchestration. Overall, it's an unmemorable mish-mash, however, and the far-out jollity and menace it seems to often aim for is more forced than inspired. "

"An odd and disjointed psychedelic album and a product of the famous Dunwich  from a Chicago area band that had formerly had some very minor success with garage rock and British Invasion – like stuff as The Trolls. Some of the tracks are pedestrian, but there is also some very good stuff on this. It doesn’t gell all that well- it sounds like it was put together rather haphazardly, and the music also seems like it comes from different eras.

Some of the tracks have a Beatles/ early Bee Gees flavor, others are in a hard rock vein. The best song is a cut named” Werewolf and Witchbreath, almost a cross between The Stooges, Black Sabbath around the time of their debut record, and early Fleetwood Mac at their loudest- indeed, almost like the three bands had got together and recorded a hard blues/ psychedelic/ heavy metal/ proto- punk theme for a horror flick. ” Professor Potts’ Pornographic Projector” is an amusing vaudeville sort of thing- a kind of satire on sexual mores done in a turn of the century atmosphere- kazoos, vari-speed vocals, and an 1890’s melody.” I’ve Only Myself To Blame” features some really nice Hollies like harmonies and whirling, Sgt. Pepper’s style arrangements.

It’s basically an anti-war song. Some of the rest of this album is dross, and it was one of many such albums- The Troll were popular in their immediate area, but failed to make much of an impression elsewhere. It’s an average album, the high points are high, the low points are dull instead of awful, though some of this hasn’t aged well. The drummer later became Jim Croce’s business manager, and also died in the 1973 plane crash that killed Croce."
