BFI - The Dragons. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. 11 tracks 42:18. Dorian Lynskey. Published on Fri 24 Aug 2007 BST. When your family name is Dragon, it would be wasteful not to try forming a band. In 1969, three brothers used a friend's studio to record an album of whimsical psychedelia, influenced by soul, jazz and the Doors. After failing to find a sympathetic label, they moved on to other things: all three played with the Beach Boys Daryl Dragon became half of toothsome pop duo Captain and Tennille. Now that DJ Food's Strictly Kev has unearthed the master tapes and given BFI a belated release, it's unlikely that any grey-ha. 참조: BFI, LP, Album, ZEN135.

They call the sessions Blue Forces Intelligence and co-produce the album with high school friend, Donn Landee a future producer for Van Halen. They find themselves layering their instruments in new ways, adding deep, bassy vocal lines and then ramming them up against falsetto harmonies, adding organs and space age sound effects, recording spirituals and pop and crazy rock opera

Ninja Tune released this stunning album in 2007 although it was recorded in 1969/70 (and never actually released back then). That raises the question how is it possible that again and again music as great as this gets lost for decades?If this would be some totally average recording, so that everybody would ask if it was necessary to release this at all; alright. But that just isn’t the case. It’s fantastic.The band had been sending their recorded album to labels in 1970 but only received reactions like: “Great production but I don’t hear a hit”. Oh my gosh - the music industry really made a lot of mistakes! Whoever wrote that line was right about the production though – it still sounds great. State of the art for the late 60s, early 70s. Not too clean but definitely also not the garage type of thing with just the right natural reverbs and atmosphere on all the tracks.It is in fact a strength of this record that it’s not that easy to categorize.I would describe the band’s sound as something between Steely Dan, J.J. Cale, the Beach Boys (an original member of the Dragons mentiones in the liner notes that they were in fact really spending time with the Beach Boys backing band), Mamas & Papas, Donovan and the Doors (all caught in their most stylish and grooviest moments) plus some soundtrack/library-oriented jazz a bit in the vein of Alan Hawkshaw or Brian Bennett.There is psychedelic in there but the musicians don’t get carried away with that. It’s a very controlled way of playing though it’s not the kind that makes you sleep in. Imagine the sort of groove that the Doors had going on “Riders On The Storm” – that’s a vibe you find spread all over this record.There’s some purely instrumental tunes, vocal songs and some tracks with just very unobtrusive vocal-work. Where there is singing the guys did the right thing; they weren’t the greatest vocalists of all time and seemed to know that. So the vocals are set into the arrangements in a modest way that works well.The opening track “Cosmosis” is kind of a spacy Psychrock with a somehow funky pre-fusion groove. “Amplified Emotion” is a cool psychedelic pop tune.The mysterious organ-riff to “On The Wall” makes me think of the aforementioned library musicians (also an interesting example for the mentioned unobtrusive female/male vocals on this one). “Your Way Too” sounds a lot like Steely Dan.My personal fave is “Pop’s Bag”, a tune that combines melancholy 60s Pop, Psych, Folk and a compact rockjazzy groove. A hit, if you ask me, eventhough not the common type with an all over repeated chorus – the verse is the catchiest part of the song, the rest is instrumental.The cover-design (although done with a computer, still very authentically) makes this a keeper as well. Beautiful and stylish just as the music on the record. Nice printed inner with lyrics and linernotes.Thanks to Strictly Kev of DJ Food and Ninja Tune for releasing this gem (and Hal Jepsen who used one of the Dragons’ songs for the soundtrack of a surf-movie, so that Kev was able to discover the band).It’s not for nothing that this record has an average vote over 4.00 here on discogs.Totally recommended.

agreed it is superb..got my copy when it was first released on clear vinyl.. if you dig thisthen check out the surf soundtrack...a sea for yourself.. i think it has been reissued just recentlyon double/vinyl. check out the film too if you can find it :)
