BOB SMITH - The Visit (USA) @320


Californianos...No es un album en solitario de BOB SMITH,,aunque el nombre de su lider es ese,,BOB SMITH asi llamron al grupo..Disco doble..Toda una amalgama de momentos diferentes sicodelicos..Omnipresente voz en Momentos suena a Jim Morison..West Coast a raudales,,efectos trippis,,pasajes folk,,guitarra fuzz..En definitiva un discazo para disfrutar..

FUZZ ACID & FLOWERS:
some copies issued with colour poster, which significantly increases the value of the LP. Counterfeited on CD (Virgo CD1518) 1996. Also legitimately reissued (RD Records RD 6) 2000, digitially remastered from the original 1/2" tapes, as a triple vinyl LP set Stop For A Visit Down Electric Avenue. The box set also contains selections from his Stop (1971) and Electric Avenue (1972) albums. Along with the three LP's, the box set includes a re-issue of "The Visit" poster, and a band history along with several photos.

Another significant collectable from the California rock scene that will interest readers. Not really a solo album at all, as Smith is backed by eight very capable musicians. Much of the music is instrumental, achieving a mystical and 'psychedelic' atmosphere, although there are a few more mainstream tracks and some nice bluesy guitar work in places. Interesting and a must for fans of psychedelia. The original pressing (especially with the amazing psychedelic poster) has skyrocketed in value in recent years; as such, the recent reissue is most welcome. It includes a bonus disc of material recorded by Stop, Bob's later band from the early seventies.

Prior to the Kent album, Bob was with Silverskin, and before that, Lid (not to be confused with The Lyd), who recorded an album in 1968 which remains unissued.

Don Preston was a member of Frank Zappa's Mothers Of Invention and Daryl Dragon was with The Dragons. Daryl worked on various projects with his brothers Doug and Dennis (Farm, A Sea For Yourself, et. al.) before finding fame and fortune as the 'Captain' in Captain and Tenille. Bob Smith continues performing locally in Florida and has finished a new recording, The Visit - Destiny 2000 From Bob Smith which he will make available on his own Southern Rose label.

Great,a promotional copy of a mythycal psychedelic album.An album never officially reissue on cd,I remember just a box with 3 vinyls(RD but not sure).The music is pure psyche but it's also a great emotion to see artwork of this rarity?
Thanks Galactic.

Quizá se me ha hecho un poco largo por ser doble, pero el disco entero, salvo alguna excepción, me parece de muy buena calidad. Gracias.

Un album para nuestro deleite y gozo.
Escuchar cada uno de los temas ha sido realmente placentero.
No hay tantas canciones como para justificar un album doble (para mi pobre entender). Y quitando esta escasez de temas, el disco en su conjunto es notable, un acierto y un saber conjugar de buenas emociones musicales.
Bellísimo.
Gracias Galacticgarden, una vez más.

Buen disco pero adolece del problema de los discos doble: falta de un censor interior para descartar que se va a poner en la "pasta". He escuchado muy pocos discos dobles de la época que sean obras maestras ya que IMHO de "lo bueno poco".
este disco es bueno pero algunos temas tendrían que haberse quedado afuera. Como disco single sería un "master opus".
De todos modos en vinilo un honor escucharlo
¡Gracias GG!
