CD Reviews

If you LIKE the Bosstown sound...
02/03/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There are always people who enjoy denigrating all of the bands which make up the Bosstown sound, but there are also people who enjoy these bands as well. If you're a fan of the Ultimate Spinach, or the Beacon Street Union, you will not be disappointed with this album. I personally think their cover of "Midnight Hour" is fantastic!"
2 tracks are among the best '60s pop psych

(3 out of 5 stars)

"2 guitar-driven tracks on Flat Earth Society's 1968 album WALEECO -
"Four and Twenty Miles" (Surrealistic Pillow-inspired riffs)
"In My Window" - though generally overlooked by reviewers, are essential.

Bosstown sound era band from lynn, massachusetts
Stephen F Mulcahy | United States | 04/12/2002
(2 out of 5 stars)

"this band hailed from lynn, a moderately large city to the north of boston. i guess they can be considered part of the bosstown sound , but i could be wrong. musically, this is mostly so-so psychedelia and sixties pop that i believe has been quite overrated. their version of the wilson pickett classic in the midnight hour is utterly dreadful beyond comprehension. the stand out track here is the first one, entitled feelin' much better. to me, this is the only truly solid number that the flat earth society put out on this, their sole album.
of greater interest may be the space kids material, which features backing music from the seminal boston 60's outfit called the lost. this was apparently never released, it was done for a local pbs station. this fine band, whose recordings i recommend, featured future members of bands such as ultimate spinach, listening, bagatelle, and even the latest, much derided, version of the velvet underground! names like walter powers , lee mason, kyle garrahan, and willie alexander. the last is still very well known in boston today. the storyline which accompanies their music involves a couple of boys who take off into outer space by accident. it's unintentionally hilarious to listen to today.
overall, i would only recommend this disc to bosstown sound completists or true weirdos. little of this disc is really memorable."
