In the dark depths of the Bosstown Sound backlash it would be hard to champion your scene amidst charges of 'plastic' and 'lame'. This was the time we threw Eden's Children in their face. Their album was released just after the initial BOSSTOWN -HYPE so they wern't lumped in with the other groups as much. (i.e.The Apple Pie Motherhood Band, The Bagatelle, The Beacon Street Union, Bo Grumpus, Eagle, Earth Opera, Eden's Children, Sure Looks Real, The Ill Wind, Jolliver Arkansaw, Orpheus, Phluph, Puff, and Ultimate Spinach). When they were compared to the others, they held their own....Eden's Children were on ABC records produced by heavy hitter Bob Theile and they even sounded a little different than the rest. They were more gritty. Still psychedelic they were closer to Hendrix than the Grateful Dead. The Children were a three piece group. All were very good players. Larry Kiley the bass player and Jimmy Sturman the drummer were a constantly interesting rhythm. The main songwriter/singer was Richard 'Sham' Schamach who was also a great 'fuzzed-up' guitar player. While the first album is much loved by all those who love it, their 2nd (and last!) is as well a collectible of the same sort, delivering right from the start in the title track that sounds like a continuance of their first. From there, we run into more gritty kickers with cool sound appeal as well as some primed tunes that cool-out, and get better with each successive spin ...still it is the hot-wired sound that make it, esp for those who love Eden's Children's when they're cookin' with nasty fuzz-tone shooting through the pro-garage sound. This is a near perfect ORIGINAL STILL SEALED copy, just a tiny drill hole, like most copies I've seen.
The obscure and highly sought after FIELDS, an underground hardrock psych trio with loads of cool fuzz guitar injected into the original tunes. Fields were a US psych-bluesrock trio consisting of Richard Fortunato (lead vocals and guitar), Patrick Burke (bass) and Steve Lagan (percussion). They existed for only about a year or so, released one single (Bide My Time), this eponymously titled album, and they collapsed after touring together, yeah, vanished witout a trace. The LP itself comes in a somewhat op-art psych-pop designed gatefold sleeve, with the cover mixings of purple, green and mustard-yellow, with a sepia band photograph forming the centrepiece. Musically, this is a blending of styles, but it works quite nicely. An obvious influence is the hard blues-rock of the likes of Cream, but there’s also acid-rock and psychedelia --and the album as a whole is very raw. This is a beautiful, original, still sealed copy with a tiny drill hole in the upper left corner and a bit of the shrink torn at the upper right corner.
