BACKGROUND + MEER INFORMATIE

1966 THE SINGLES

I tend not to agree entirely with Jon Savage who claims that 1966 was the year that the decade – and pop music – exploded. I do, however, agree to say that 1966 spawned an amazing amount of fantastic pop singles and some wonderful LPs.  And “1966.The Year the Decade Exploded” is a great read anyways!
Radio 68 collected some LP tracks, b-sides and more stuff you may have forgotten about (Eddy Bonte)
“Nineteen sixty-six was the year of Nineteenth Nervous Breakdown a nd Paint It Black and Pet Sounds; the year of Revolver and John Lennon saying “we’re more popular than Jesus now”, which came back to haunt them when they toured America later in the year. It was also the year in which the Vietnam War continued to escalate, Huey Newton and Bobby Seale started the Black Panther Party, and the first gay riot, predating Stonewall by three years, took place in San Francisco”.

THE FLOWER POT MEN: PEACE

On the one hand, The Flower Pot Men were a fraud. Master composers John Carter and Ken Lewis (the brains of The Ivy League) could write songs in any light pop genre style and, therefore, were able to take advantage of new trends. In 1967, with Hippie at its height, the duo wrote “Let’s Go to San Francisco” and within weeks had to cope with a serious problem: The Flower Pot Men were in the charts but didn’t actually exist – it was just one of many vehicles for their songs (like The White Plains). On the other hand, Carter and Lewis were masters of harmony, wrote fine lyrics and worked with the best singers and musicians. The duo developed one particular type of ‘hippie’ music: the soft, slow, melodious songs with unusual instruments (such as bells and harpsichords) and lyrics about heavens, new dimensions and, of course, love and peace. The fabulous follow-up ‘Take A Walk in the Sky’ flopped, but Carter and Lewis persisted and wrote a concept album titled ‘Peace’ in 1969. Their record company refused to release it and the whole project was shelved for decades. Whether they believed in Hippie or not, ‘Peace’ is a fine concept album with eight songs about peace, love, freedom and Vietnam framed between a Prologue and an Epilogue. The only non-original is the weakest track of all (Donovan’s ‘Colours’). The wonderful harmonies are supported by great playing: Mickey Keen on guitar, John Ford on bass and Richard Hudson on drums (yes,  Hudson and Ford of Strawbs fame!).
