Liquid Smoke

Why, how about another of those early 1970's one-shot psychedelic one album wonders that I certainly seem to enjoy so much......I guess my reason is that often that music sounded far ahead of it's time, and still sounds fresh and new today (to me, at least?).....play a sex pistols record. play a standells record. Play the doors, Love, The Dolls, the Stooges......all undeniably GREAT, but all obviously as a product of a very specific place and time........

Now, some of these short lived early 70's hard-psych bands......Frijid Pink, Dark-E, Wailing Wall, Touch, about 1000 more.....well, it's different.....timeless and spaecless.....and that's where Liquid Smoke comes in.

Ca. 1971, from Long Island NY, Liquid Smoke were Vocalist Sanndy Panteleo, guitarist Vince Fersak, keyboardist Ben Ninnman, bassisst Mike Archuleta, and drummer Chas Kimbrell. They released but this one album, and honestly, quite an album it is......."Lookin For Tomorrow" is a shoulda-been classic that you might have heard a time or two, trippy, mysterious, fairly great. Also a lonely sounding version of Ben E King's "I Who Have Nothing", and lots more. As with so many albums of this style and release time that I love so much, this album works much better as a cohesive, total listen, at least the first time, rather that track skipping/pecking (think a Pink Floyd Album).......a fine, fine piece of music from the period though, and if you trust that I've never steered you wrong before, trust again.......excellent post-psychedlia for you, just about the time the music was going Floyd/Hawkwind spacey.

I really think you'll be taken by surprise and really enjoy this one!
