“The Spinach’s self-titled debut album is now considered a psychedelic classic, but it’s the group’s second record, Behold and See, that is perhaps their finest achievement. Ostensibly a concept album, it?s centered around lead singer/songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Ian Bruce-Douglas’ cynical worldview. He skewers “normal” society with all the fervor of Zappa and all the surreality (and insanity) of Bob Markley on songs like “Visions of Your Reality” and the four-part “Suite: Genesis of Beauty.” Add in the lush, floating vocals of Barbara Jean Hudson, fuzz guitar and some great late-60s psych jangle and you’ve got the formula for an unhinged classic that stands up to the best of the non-coastal psych sounds of the late-60s.
For decades, the only available version of Behold and See was a heavily-edited “director’s cut? which omitted an entire song and presented edited versions of others. On this edition, Sundazed proudly presents the album in its rare, original, superior dedicated mono mix, unexpurgated and unedited. This “ultimate edition” is presented on (of course! and at last!) custom spinach-colored vinyl and nestled into a jacket with beautifully restored artwork. Behold and See is the perfect place to dig into the “Bosstown Sound? – a tremendous and beautiful album now on Sundazed!!!” Quoted from, All Rights Reserved:


“Although at the time Simon & Garfunkel were already established pop stars, 1968’s Bookends cemented their place as pop legends and went on to become one of the duo’s alltime classic albums. The fact that Bookends wasn’t overshadowed by S&G’s crowning achievement Bridge Over Troubled Water, which came along a year later, gives an idea of this record’s impressive stature. While not quite on the same level as Bridge (but then, few albums are), Bookends is a charming, eclectic and inspired collection of some of the best pop songs of the 1960s (…)  . This theme is briefly circumnavigated in the second track, “Save the Life of My Child.” A haunting, slightly electronic indictment of the government during the Vietnam era, the song centers on a boy on a ledge, ready to jump, and the frenzy of activity by everyone to a) avert the tragedy and b) protect their own appearence. “America” returns to the realm of peace – where “Save the Life of My Child” was an attack on a hypocritical government, “America” is a celebration of America’s people, told through a Kerouac-ian story of two lovers “look[ing] for America.”
