2.0 out of 5 stars The Electric Coffee House 15 Oct 2009
By Levy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Electric Coffee House is a collection of Byrds era inspired tracks. And I'm afraid suffers for it, making it one of the least enjoyable comps released by Psychic Circle. Wayward One by The Tiffany System is Byrds by numbers and pointless for it. Same could be said of The Energy Package. The singer for Clees Of Lavendar Hill imagines he's Bob Dylan, both vocally and lyrically and it's painfull. The Guilloteens from Memphis are of passing interest as they were championed by Elvis Presley. Vinnie Basile's Gypsy Girl, one of the better tracks here, was later released by Davy Jones. Liza Edwards lead singer of The Yankee Dollar does a passable Grace Slick meets Stevie Nicks on the Reflections Of A Shattered Mind - I can't make up my mind if, torwards the end, the record is scratched or purposely distorted. Best track by far is the sweet pop of 'There's Reason Why' by the Mama & Papa's sounding The Scandal.

I'm afraid the cause is not helped by a poor, tinny sound - many of the tracks sound as if they were sourced straight from vinyl - and well played vinyl at that. For tracks that feature sweet or soaring harmonies, this is a problem as they tend to sound muffled and ultimately you are left feeling rather frustrated. Byrds fans will no doubt enjoy spotting which Byrds track served as inspiration for many of the tracks found here but I can't imagine this comp being listened to much more than twice. Sleeve notes are good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant-what else? 24 Dec 2010
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
You really can't go wrong with a stack of mainly obscure groups who were influenced by the Byrds and the British Invasion.The Clefs of Lavender Hill were all fans of the Beatles and the Stones and even named themselves after a London location.The brother and sister led act climbed into the Hot 100 with Stop Get A Ticket and later made a stunning version of the Stones' Play With Fire
The Iguanas also had a U K release but are nothing to do with the Iggy Pop group who would not be known of till the 80s when he was in the Stooges
The Gants actually charted with I wonder-which has a melody ascloseasthis to a famous Lennon McCartney one)
The sleeve notes explain who each bands were but I can't see it as any big deal that Presley rated the Guilloteens-this single was issued in the U K

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Comp 60's Album in Years 22 Sep 2011
By Keith Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the best new 60's Compilation album in years. Many of the original records are very expensive such as Slightly Reminiscent of Her listed as $1000 in Osborne's guide. Another great song on the CD is High Coin. Enjoy!
