Product Description

SUPER JEWEL PACKAGE WITH 16 PAGE BOOKLET. THE RARE TEXAN PSYCHEDELIC CLASSIC FROM 1967. International Artists Records produced some of the most innovative records to come out of Texas’s thriving rock scene of the late Sixties. One of the most influential independent record companies of its day, it has gained cult status over the years amongst fans of prime American psychedelic and garage rock. One of the label’s groundbreaking acts were The Golden Dawn, who only released this one album (and no singles) during their short recording career – they broke up soon after the album’s release. An acknowledged psych classic, Power Plant is now being re-issued on the resurrected International Artists label. The accompanying 16-page illustrated booklet includes an insightful interview with the group’s leader and driving force, George Kinney, in which he gives an unique track-by-track run-down of the album’s songs. Tracks: Evolution / This Way, Please / Starvation / I'll Be Around / Seeing Is Believing / My Time / A Nice Surprise / Every Day / Tell Me Why / Reaching Out To You --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

I stumbled across this album in a friends collection several years ago when I was still a teen interested in collecting weird 60's music. To this day (some 16 years later), I still put it on my turntable and enjoy the heady sounds of "Power Plant". If you like the Elevators, or "Flash" by The M. Sidewalks, then this is an ESSENTIAL recording to own. Scorching fuzz guitar galore, wonderful lyrics and a superb vocalist makes this one of the best underground 60's psych albums of all time. Surprisingly enough, compared to some 60's psychedelia this album does not sound at all dated. I HIGHLY recommend Golden Dawn's "Power Plant" to anyone interested in Psychedelia, and in particular, late 60's hippie psych.

There's a lot of music touted as being psychedelic; any old 60s garage fuzz is repackaged with a suitably swirly graphic and wibbly text and sold as a mind-bending dip into consciousness expanding music. Much of these have merit, but this is the real deal, and if your taste stretches to the 13th Floor Elevators and beyond, then you'll know what the real thing sounds like. And this is it. The band hail from Texas and the Elevators influence is clear (Rocky was a friend and encouraged the band). Musically it's tight and competent and the ridiculous extremes of fuzz, feedback and random sound effects avoided in favour of a more musical approach, albeit tinged with the strange. If you are looking for an obscure psychedelic gem here it is. That claim may have been made for many albums before and since, but in this case it is justified. My copy claimed to be one of a limited edition of 1,500, so order this now.

If you have any interest in 60's garage or psych then this is a must have album. The band sound similar to the 13th Floor Elevators but slightly more commercial and tighter. The guitar playing is good and the standard of the songs is excellent from beginning to end. Tracks like Evolution, Starvation and My Time are up with the best of the era. Just a great shame that the band fell apart and didn't release anything else. Buy it - you won't regret it.

As these guys were sponsored by the 13th Floor Elevators they have subsequently, and I suppose not totally unexpectedly, laboured in the shadow of that much esteemed band. Which is a shame, as their one album is a genuine fuzzed up Texas psych gem, well worth your time. The songwriting and arrangements are better than the Elevators to these ears and coupled with heavy air of melancholia, make this an altogether more weighty proposition than most.

For all you folks who like the 13th Floor Elevators this CD should be added to your collection. There are times when you may be forgiven for actually thinking that you are listening to Roky Eriksson as George Kinney's voice is so similar at times

Golden Dawn only had the one album while The Elevators went on to produce more albums and gain greater recognition.
The initial album launch was delayed by a year which gave the Elevators time to "nip in"

While the album cannot be held held in the same esteem as the Elevators "Easter" it is up there and in the tracks This Way Please and My Time they produce some classic sounds where you can just turn the clock black and imagine you're back in Texas at the height of the Psychedelic era.
