Hippie Singer and Songwriter Joe Peace recorded and released his only album privately in OHIO in 1972, after being a long time on road. Inspired by his reflections he made on his road trip, by his idol Johnny Rivers, and from some Buffalo Springfield shades, he created 10 catchy original, emotional and poetic themes. The musical spectrum ranges from westcoast, loner-folk to heavy psychedelic garage rock with an intense groove, deep and energetic vocals backed by stunning fuzz guitars. Truly an atmospheric album, an underrated pearl, with a unique drive. Original albums nowadays became very rare and have in the meantime reached cult status among collectors. The condition of the thick cardboard gatefold cover is M-! The condition of the disc is a nice EX with only a minimal amount of light sleeve scuffs present. The vinyl still exhibits a nice gloss and it plays great!
"Only known copy of what appears to be a school project LP. My review in The Acid Archives (for which this copy was used) describes this best:
Mystery possible college project LP with different vocalists and instrumental combos. All apparent originals except the opener, a very primitive “That’ll Be the Day” ith good thumping bass line, and “Loch Lomond” sung with a bad faux-Scottish burr but with a good rocking mandolin/trumpet/heavy bass/ drums backing.
Among the originals, Side 1 stand-outs are “Strawberry Days”, a hippie goddess folk rocker with angelic dual female vocals and a heavy electric guitar rhythm; “Right On”, a psychy folk rocker which has the sound of a teenage Bob Edmund, complete with garagy organ/drum backing; and “Go With the Game”, a rocker with a slightly funky rhythm guitar and bass line, a secondary trumpet melody and a Lee Oskar War-like harmonica solo.
Side 2 highlights include “Smile At the Sun”, with a mellow Annie Haslam style vocal and jazz-tinged electric keyboard backing (a bit reminiscent of early Steely Dan - think “Do It Again”); “KS Rebellion” a male vox folk song with odd lyrics (“Go fight your battle, Go herd your cattle”); and “the closing “Vida Blues”, a thumping bass blues jam with cool dixieland style trumpet leads and a wailing harmonica solo or two."
