LAVENDER HILL EXPRESS - 'Visions'/'Trying To Live A Life' (Sonobeat RS 102) Dec 1967
Lavender Hill Express hailed from Austin, Texas and included in their ranks Jess Yaryan and Rusty Wier who came to prominence in Austin's hottest group The Wig.
I can't think of much flower pop coming out of Texas but 'Visions' is a wonderful and elaborate sunshine groover with rich vocal harmonies and a string arrangement by the Austin Symphony Orchestra. The memorable harpsichord is played by arranger Richard Green.
The single was recorded in November 1967 and released in stereo just before Christmas.
