common people

ψάχνοντας, βρίσκεις τέτοια 'μικρά' αριστουργήματα: αυτοί είναι οι common people απ' το 1968 και ο δίσκος τους έχει τον απίθανο τίτλο of the people, by the people, for the people from the common people [κάτι μου μυρίζει pulp].
This album is a nice blend of folk-pop and light psych which in places sounds not unlike the softer side of Love or The Lollipop Shoppe, but with more orchestration. All eleven songs are originals, most of which are written by group members Jerrald and Denny Robinett, who are assumedly brothers. The standout track is probably the Love-esque “Take from You” which, like the rest of the album, features fine guitar work and soothing breathless vocals. Although Vernon Joynson in his book Fuzz, Acid, and Flowers compares the album to that of labelmates Gandalf, the Common People sound is more guitar based and its accompanying orchestration more invasive. Not a great album, but pleasant listening nonetheless. Similar sounds: Growing Concern, Mandrake Memorial, Tea Company, and Fever Tree. CD reissue is from the excellent up-and-coming Ascension Record label in Australia and is mastered from the tapes with excellent sound quality.
soon there'll be thunder
