    2-fed CD
    The Beacon Street Union
    The Eyes Of The Beacon Street Union / The Clown Died In Marvin Gardens
    Includes both their albums misus one track from the second album. This really sucks as I would have gladly paid for an extra disc.


    From Wikipedia:

    The Bosstown Sound (or Boston Sound) was the catchphrase of a marketing campaign to promote psychedelic rock and psychedelic pop bands in Boston, Massachusetts, in the late 1960s. The concept was conceived by the record producer Alan Lorber as a marketing strategy intended to establish several underground musical artists native to the city on the national charts and compete with the popular San Francisco Sound. Lorber chose Boston for his plan because of the several bands developing in the city, the abundance of music venues (such as the Boston Tea Party), and the proximity of MGM Records, which had signed the core groups.

    The Bosstown Sound was promoted as harnessing the hallucinogenic essence of psychedelia, also known at the time as acid rock. Numerous bands were involved, but the groups Ultimate Spinach, the Beacon Street Union, and Orpheus were the most prominent. The Boston music scene briefly captured the interest of the youth culture, and recordings by bands from Boston achieved positions on the Billboard 200 chart. However, by the end of 1969, the campaign faltered, its advertisements rejected by listeners. Critics panned the groups involved, and few of the Bosstown bands survived after the scene collapsed. Opinions are still mixed, but the music of these bands has received more positive assessments in recent years.

    I'm spinning my autographed Anne Bisson album. I have fond memories of that RMAF with Carl. He took a pic of me with Anne while she told me 'don't give me no lines and keep your hands to yourself.' :D

    I was reading an article from 2003 by a reviewer and he said this:

    Solo instruments and voice often show what a component does best, while dense, complicated music is full of opportunities to trip that same component up. When I want to lay a component bare, I listen to Mr. Bungle’s California [Ipecac 947447-2].

    This album has earned me enemies at hi-fi shows, partly because it’s challenging to listen to but mostly because it can reduce some speakers and low-powered amplifiers to smoking, amusical rubble


    I was curious as a cat to how this album sounds. Ordered the CD from Amazon and as one person who purchased said: "It will get you high without any drugs". WOW!!
