Shaun Harris was bassist, singer and founding member of the groundbreaking hydra-headed beast that was The West Coast Pop-Art Experimental Band. While the WCPAEB have rightly become the stuff of legend, little attention has been paid to Shaun's subsequent recordings in the early '70s. Until now. Together with former WCPAEB band mate and general all-round musical genius Michael Lloyd, Shaun cut an album's worth of his own compositions for Capitol Records in 1973 featuring star turns from the likes of Beach Boy Bruce Johnston and the ubiquitous Jim Gordon and Larry Knetchel. The album also features Shaun's brother and WCPAEB lynchpin Danny and was orchestrated by their father, the world-renowned composer Roy Harris. Shaun's memorable, hook-laden songs (akin to the softer side of the WCPAEB oeuvre) are set beautifully against a backdrop of Burritos-flavored country rock and layers of warm Beach Boys vocal harmonies. Contains the classic single 'I'll Cry Out', a high watermark in Harris' esteemed back catalog. Rev-ola. 2005.

"In 1973 The pink floyd released The dark side of the moon, who eclipsed even outside the UK many albums, and that's was the fact for Shaun Harris who was in the shadow of fame. After the end of the west coast pop art experimental band ( for remembrance, that band was and still remains my favorite of all times with teh Electric prunes our moby grape )Shaun Harris returns almost 5 years later to record that AMAZING west coast symphonic album ! You must try one of the songs in the album ! all are magic and bring you back to a warm feeling you ever felt when you falled in love !
Now the reissue is back ( thanx to revola ) you can settle yourself and rest your mind to have a great moment in listening that MASTERPIECE !
