JOYRIDE Friendsound LP 1969 psych musique concrete RARE

Joyride-Friendsound (Friend Sound) LP

ORIGINAL 1969 RCA Records (LSP-4114) - orange RCA labels - includes original RCA printed innersleeve!

The late 1960s seem to have found everyone in the music business trying to turn out something deep and meaningful. As such it's probably not much of a surprise that these former members of Paul Revere and the Raiders were doing the same thing. Still, anyone expecting to hear something in the Paul Revere, or Brotherhood vein in going to be in for one major shock !!! Self-produced, 1969's "Friendsound" makes absolutely no attempt to go down the commercial road and to ours ears may deserve to be noted as one of the first real "jam" albums. It's also one of those rare instances where the liner notes are dead-on ... "A musical free-for-all ... The idea for Friendsound came to us when we were in the early stages of creating our first album. We rounded up all out musician friends in the area and headed for a recording studio to have a musical free-for-all." That pretty much says it all. Exemplified by material such as the title track and "Childhood's End", the six extended numbers were largely instrumental in nature. Credited as group compositions, songs such as "CHildsong" and "Empire of Light" are full of studio experimentation, including backward tapes, sound effects and acid-influenced ramblings. Raiders members Levin, Smith and Volk were too grounded in top-40 pop to totally abandon such concepts as rhythm and melody, but it's pretty clear late night parting imbued them with a lot more freedom and creative latitude than your typical Paul Revere and the Raiders session. Not for the faint of heart, or top-40 junkies, but worth checking out for the more adventuresome of you out there ...

6 tracks. 1/JOYRIDE AND LOST ANGEL PROPER ST. Overdubbed flute with various sounds and dialogue. 2/THE EMPIRE OF LIGHT. Organ, plucked piano strings, and played console with various sounds. Mixed onto stereo tape in one take! 3/CHILDHOOD'S END. An experiment in Musique Concrete resolving into "triumphal" guitar chorus. 4/LOVE SKETCH. Prepared Piano, guitars, flute, bass and drums. 5/ CHILDSONG Electronic tone poem as well as Musique Concrete, integrated with children's voices.
