Format: Audio CD
This was one of those CDs that Amazon recommended to me from looking at previous purchases. Usually thay get it completly wrong, but not this time. I read the 2 previous reviews and it sounded like my bag and it is.

I think the sound quality is fine, it's a low budget/live in the studio type sound which I think suits the band. They remind me a little of Moby Grape, but with just one guitar. All the songs are excellent and a couple even have strings. The vocals and backing/harmonies are spot on and there is some brilliant guitar playing. Quite why this is all the band produced will remain a mystery, as does what the members of the band did after this.

If you like American 60's West Coast music you will love this. It's always nice to discover something new, even if it is 40 years old!

Thank you to the 2 previous reviewers for tempting me.

Format: Audio CD
I`m confused as to why the previous reviewer didn`t mention the `vinyl rip` nature of this C.D. From Fallout[see Radioactive too]a company renowned for vinyl rips,the sound unfortunately stops this C.D from getting full marks. The opening track is probably the worse for this, filled with cracks and pops. But most of the album suffers. Or is it just my copy?. Having bought other C.D`s from the label, i just assumed it was the norm.

Anyway, on to the music...there`s some great tunes on here. "Yellow Wall", is superb [about a trippy visit to the dentist], "David`s Rush" is very good string-laden Psych/Acid Pop. "9-5 `59" is another winner, as is "Antique Locomotives". No bad tracks at all though.

Soundalikes is tough as the band expertly flow through Psych-style Pop and Rock, though there`s inevitably Hendrix and Cream comparisons. Not least because their a three-piece. All played extremely well too. Indeed, one rumour about the band is that they were session musicians, put together for the album, but we may never know the truth.

If you like Psych Rock/Pop and can stand vinyl rip c.d`s, go for it.

Released in 1969 and little is known of this power trio who are thought to be from Boston.Various styles of american psychedelia are featured on this album from bluesy acid rock to commercial songs.If you are into this type of music it is well worth buying.

Who Were These Guys? 3 Oct. 2009
By Curt L. Schwebs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this album in the spring of 1969 when it was released on Date records, a CBS (Columbia) subsidiary. Being interested in three-piece bands the cover looked intrigueing - three stone-faced long-hairs staring at the camera. The bar was set rather high for trios in 1969. Cream's "Goodbye" album had come out, Hendrix was alive and well. Upon hearing "Wilkinson Tri-Cycle" I was pleasantly surprised. Guitarist David Mello wasn't going to win any awards for prolific soloing but his playing fit in well with their sound. Bassist Richard Porter and drummer Michael Clemens were the real story. Porter had good chops and an excellent singing voice while Clemens drove the music with precision and rhythmic dexterity. Their music covered a range of styles - heavy rock, blues and pop-rock with a dash of psychedelia. They had a unique sound. I couldn't classify them. Two tracks in particular stood out - "David's Rush" and "Yellow Wall". Both had an orchestral accompianment and were very memorable. Especially "Yellow Wall" about a trip to the dentist. Over the years I would periodically bring out this album for a listen. It always stood-up and retained its originality. Upon seeing a CD of "Wilkinson Tri-Cycle" on Amazon I had to order it. Unfortunately, the CD is mastered from vinyl. I have two vinyl copies already so I was disappointed. I was also hoping for some information regarding the band but, apparently, Wilkinson Tri-Cycle remains a mystery. The notes indicate they may have been from the Boston area and played with The Velvet Underground at the Boston Tea Party March 13-15, 1969. That's it. [...]lists the album but has no information. These guys seem to have fallen off the edge of the world. Regarding the CD, there is some surface noise but overall it's not a problem. This is one rare item from the late sixties. Depending on your taste for the music of those times I highly recommend it.

Hey guys! For all that are wondering where these guys went, I have good news. I am the grand-daughter of Michael Clemens and grew up surrounded by the music of him and David Mello. Both are well and living in Maine still making music!

These guys were from Long Island and were a featured band at a club called The Golden Pheasant. I remember them well, especially Dicky Porter. They had a great sound and a great group of guys. I remember their big blck truck with a tri cycle on it.Such memories, well what I can remember of it (wink)

My Driving Instructor in 1983? 22 Mar. 2013
By Brian Cassidy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Richard Porter was my driving instructor in 1983. If I remember he worked for the East Meadow Driving School which would make the claim of this band being from Long Island very probable. He causally mentioned that he had played in a band called Wilkinson something-or-other.
They were from Long Island. 12 July 2012

Wilkinson Tricycle was from Long Island. Roslyn I think. In 1969 I was briefly in a band with a bass player named Peter Cannonball Nanos who had worked with them before they got signed to CBS.
