Once Upon a Twilight [Import]
Digitally remastered edition of this 1968 album, Australia's greatest Pop-Psych album. Although almost totally ignored on it's original release, the album now takes it's place among the best of the genre. Just what is it that makes The Twilights' Once Upon a Twilight such an important Pop-Psych artifact? First and foremost is the quality of the songs themselves, with nearly all having been written by the band's resident musical genius, guitarist Terry Britten. Secondly, under the guidance of producer David Mackay, the band recorded the album as a complete work, so that even today it displays a unity of purpose and holistic purity not generally achieved elsewhere. Thirdly, the sound of the album boasts all the trappings of period Psychedelia, with all manner of studio trickery from echoed harmonies and gentle phasing to vocals fed through rotating Leslie cabinets. Incidentally, The Twilights were fronted by future Little River Band vocalist Glenn Shorrock. Aztec. 2006.
