"There is a plethora of early 70's folk-pop and psych reissues coming out these days. Especially on this label. Some are great and some are dogs that should fester in the vaults. This Richard Twice album falls into the former category. These guys harmonize well together and the songwriting is hip. Some of Boss Angeles' top session cats like Larry Knechtel are kicking it up a notch as well. This isn't a life changer, but will definitely provide a mellow buzz to soft-psych afficianados and Generation '70 hippies."
THIS WAS RECORDED IN 1968 and RELEASED IN 1969 - NOT IN 1970

"I can't believe Fallout (the label that released this), as well as the one, only other reviewer ("Bowie") got the date wrong on this. I bought this only because it was used, recommended, and it had the 'Wrecking Crew' (the best! group of Los Angeles/Hollywood musicians) listed in the credits. But after one listen, I knew it must have been released in 1969 (and most likely, recorded in 1968 - the most magical time & place in the history of Pop-Psych music ever!). Sure enough, with a little bit of research on the internet, and cross-referenced with the original label's catalog number, it was released in early 1969 - NOT in 1970!
Another musical gem, not released from the master tapes! At least Fallout did a very good transfer from a pristine LP (which is not always the case with bootleg labels!). To think of all the complete garbage albums that DO get released on CD, and here you have another unknown treasure like this, that only gets a vinyl transfer, with minimum notes, photographs, et al. But you must give credit where credit is do - even though Fallout is a bootleg label, at least it IS releasing worthwhile albums, that otherwise would remain obscure and never heard. And congratulations also to Amazon for selling their CDs (some of them, but not all of them). I hope this review helps clear up some details, and encourages some more sells!
