Part 2 of 4:
Spanky & Our Gang – “Lazy Day”
Flower Pot Men – “Lets Go to San Francisco” — This song is nearly a perfect specimen. Once upon a time I tried to dissect it. Those little bass lines are so cool.
The Zombies – “Hung Up on a Dream” — From the Odyssey and Oracle album. Hard to believe this band called it quits because they weren’t getting anywhere with it.
Billy Nicholls – “Would You Believe?” — From Would You Believe?, a British attempt at taking on Pet Sounds. Much more a rock album though.
Left Banke – “Pretty Ballerina” — The Left Banke are referred to as “baroque pop” for their use of harpsichords and older scale modes. Great schitzophrenic use of falsetto in this song.
Beach Boys – “God Only Knows” — Brian Wilson song (with Carl singing lead) from Pet Sounds.
Curt Boettcher – “Another Time” (demo) — Another version of this song appears on the Sagittarius Present Tense album.
Justin Heathcliff – “You Know What I Mean” — Psych from Japan.
Tinkerbells Fairydust – “Marjorine”
Beach Boys – “Little Bird” — A Dennis Wilson track.
