BOOK A TRIP - VOLUME 2



15 BOOK A TRIP - VOLUME 2 (Now Sounds CRNOW 46) 2013

Once more, Now Sounds raids the Capitol Records vaults in Hollywood for late 60s psychedelic pop/sunshine pop obscurities and unearths even more first time on CD gems. All sourced from original masters, these original Capitol singles are circa 1965 - 1970.

Productions by the likes of Michael Lloyd collide with arrangements by Mort Garson and Gene Page and compositions by Harry Nillson, Donovan and Kim Fowley and performances by many legendary Wrecking Crew members, proving why Capitol Records was the undisputed leader of pop during this pivotal era.

The full colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive track-by-track liner notes that feature the participation of many original band members, songwriters and producers.
