5.0 out of 5 stars "The Greatest British Psychedelic album ever!", 12 Nov 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: July (Audio CD)
If you are lucky enough to get your hands on this,(a repressed vinyl costs at least 200, and even the CD has ceased to be manufactured although copies can occasionally be obtained) you are in for a trip through a range of moods.
They started out as a skiffle act from Ealing, called The Playboys and then became an R&B combo, The Tomcats. John (Speedy) Keen (later with Thunderclap Newman) was in them for a while. In 1966, The Tomcats went to Spain with a new line-up (the future July one). As Los Tomcats, they got in the charts with four EPs, one of which was all in Spanish! They returned to the UK in 1968, and were still based in Ealing.
This album is a ride through a range of twangs and chimes, upbeat in places; mellow and other wordly elsewhere.
Dandelion seeds starts off with Tony Duhig twanging the guitar expertly, with the thud of the drum joining in followed by Tom Newman's gentle vocals, personally my favourite song.
Theres some fine psychedelic guitar work in "Crying Is For Writers".
Every track is well worth listening to, you'll find it growing on you more and more with each listen, although you know its going to be good from the moment of your first play.
Time has not been kind to all the tracks (e.g. 'Jolly Mary' which I think is great, and made in a comical way!) but overall it's well worth purchasing for its eerie psychedelia, one of the most sought-after British psychedelic sixties albums ever.

This review is from: July (Audio CD)
This isnt as heavy as I imagined it would be after reading other reviews on the Net.
Still a great piece of psych and a good addition to any collection.
It would have got 5 but I found it lacking in atmosphere at times.
