Watching the moon
Stephen F Mulcahy | United States | 01/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"this is one of the great lost psychedelic one offs of the late 60's. most tunes are coversd, including stellar sixties versions of songs originally done by people like harry belafonte and bing crosby! also includes three songs written by the great tim hardin. some fine guitar work, vocals, and organ displayed here. the highlight is the original song " can you travel in the dark alone": great melody and words. this song has a middle eastern flavor that works perfectly. another fine tune is the original "i watch the moon" . this album is ,if anything, too brief. it clocks in at about 31 minutes. it is strange that a band with such talent didn't stick around, one would have loved to have seen what else this group could've come up with. since we'll probably never know, i suggest you pick this up if you enjoy lite( for the most part) and tasteful but not wimpy psych."
Don't be put off by their's excellent!

"I was curious about this one for quite some time, but was put off by the name...which immediately conjurs up
images of stupid twee songs about elves and other hippy silliness. Ah, but what a pleasant surprise was in store
for me! Fantastic melodic psych in the spirit of The Zombies "Odessey and Oracle". This one will really grow on you.
According to an interview in "Ugly Things" magazine, they were really called the Rahgoos when this LP was recorded,
and for the majority of their existence as well. So forget all that wizard nonsense anyhow...."

"Usually, I don't like records with lots of covers, but this one is a brilliant exception. They remodeled songs of Harry Belafonte(!) and Tim Hardin with mastery ("You Upset The Grace of Living" is stunning). And the two self-penned songs are absolutely mind-blowing: the onyrical "Can You Travel In The Dark Alone" and the hypnotic "I Watch The Moon". Pete Sando, guitarist, main vocalist and leader, is very, very talented. Where are you now, Pete?"
