THE CYRKLE - 'Penny Arcade'/'The Words' (Columbia 4-44224) July 1967
By the time Columbia released 'Penny Arcade' by New York based group The Cyrkle their hits had dried up and interest in them had waned to such a degree that members Don Dannemann and Tom Dawes, the writer of 'The Words' would soon decide to quit, then change careers, direction, whatever you want to call it and start composing jingles for TV commercials.
The flip of 'Penny Arcade' is a neglected psychedelic pop nugget. 'The Words'....with it's sumptious folk rock 12 string jangle, sitar sounds and assorted studio trickery it's most certainly a blissful pop psycher that earns it's rightful place on my blog.
