Neon Pearl - Neon Pearl (1967 uk, cool lo fi psychedelia)

Incredible sessions from the year of psychedelia’s apex—gliding rhythms and softly pulsing melodies floating on a bed of organ and harmonium (‘Out Of Sight’ and ‘Going With The Flow’ in particular are especially delicious). Peter Dunton (drums/vocals), Bernard Jinks (bass) and Rod Harrison (guitar) (sometime members of PLEASE and THE FLIES and later in legendary band T2) plied their trade as Neon Pearl in Germany in the summer of 1967.

After a few months playing to appreciative German audiences, they returned to England where a music publisher financed them to lay as many tracks to tape as they could within the few hours booked. The result is what we have here. Almost certainly the most spartan of Dunton-related material reissued thus far, but it doesn’t suffer because of it, rather it gives it a feel all of its own. This edition is taken from the master tapes, and comes complete with two bonus tracks.

2. Dream Scream - 4:24
3. Out Of Sight - 6:59
4. Just Another Day - 3:50
5. Forever - 5:22
6. Going With The Flow - 5:40
7. Urban Ways - 4:03

10.Nothing To Say - 1:56
