Breezy Sunshine Pop/Soft Rock/Psych Pop: Soft Soul Transition - SST 1969 (2009 Beatball ‎– BEAT 49) Flac & mp3

Soft Soul Transition's SST, originally released in 1969 as a private pressing. Breezy sunshine-pop, soft-rock, psych-pop from California. Crystal clear recording with awesome vocal harmonies, superb musicianship, bossa and blue-eyed-soul-jazz touches with folk-rock moves. In 1969, Chet Demilo was appearing at Donkin's Inn in Marina Del Rey, where he met Arnie Marcus and Ray Hames, who together were to become part of an incredible slice of history. Donkin's became the hottest and most famous destination in Southern California for the next seven years, and Chet was the magnet that started the new singles scene in Los Angeles with Marina Del Rey as ground zero. Arnie sat in on bongos with Chet from time-to-time, and Ray, who was managing an apartment complex that housed 200 flight attendants, just happened to have a unit available. Chet moved in and he and Ray started working on songs together. Chet suggested forming a vocal group with Arnie and SST was born. For three months they practiced the intricate vocal harmonies and in early 1970 cut the album, Soft Soul Transition, or SST. A thousand records were pressed and an album release party was held at Donkin's where SST gave their one and only performance.

Very nice album with different musical influences.A great pop effort.
