Harmony Grass' sole LP has a few songs from their late-1960s singles (including "Move in a Little Closer," their only British hit), and it's also filled out by a few Tony Rivers originals and an assortment of covers. This odd, occasionally impressive and sometimes saccharine mix of pop/rock casts the group among the few British exponents of sunshine pop. Sometimes the airplane-commercial harmonies and cheeriness is vacuous. On the other hand, Rivers proves himself a competent emulator of the Beach Boys' most upbeat material on "Summer Dreaming" and "My Little Girl," as well as the Pet Sounds era on "I've Seen to Dream." On yet another hand, with "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "Tom Dooley," and the weird "(It Ain't Necessarily) Byrd Avenue," the group sounds like a college glee club, here to entertain for your social function, backed by extremely competent studio musicianship.
Flac2 Here is the mp3 link: mp3@320
Hello Folks, i post this collection of very good power pop from the Midwest of the US in both, Flac and mp3. If you pick the mp3 you can take only the music without the artwork because the second link is only the complete artwork.The music is in link 1. But i recommend to take the artwork because it is a giant booklet full of information and photographs. Really nice. The Flac link is limited till 2017-04-14.
If you are a power popster grab it because here are really great songs in the collection. Contra Band, The Jets, The Shoes, The Names, Paul, The Vertebrats, Nines and a lot other fine stuff will kick you ... .
mp3 Link1 You need link1 for the album and link 2 for the (great) artwork! Link2
I removed the old mp3@160 link. It's now in 320 in the post.
