Simon D. Jones "mavmaramis" (Somerset) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Justin O'Brien And Jake (Audio CD)
James Plummer is Radioactive. Alas he has been responsible for over 200 unauthorised reissues of rare and collectable records.

Plummer got done after he issued an illegal copy of a Bob Trimble CD and then a Hendrix, but then he came back as "Fallout"

The material is illegal and indeed some of it very rare indeed - check out Moon Blood by Fraction of which there were only ever 200 copies issued on vinyl, but at least the material is, for the most part, quality music.

Time Will Tell was originaslly released in 1978. If U.S. West Coast- style rock with a tinge of the psychedelic is to your liking, look no further. Comparisons have been made to Bob Smith, Michael Angelo and D.R. Hooker, but you can dig deeper than that. There are certainly Arthur Lee's vocal stylings in there, and some of the rhythms of the music recall Love's Forever Changes period. On other tracks there is the haunting quality of H.P. Lovecraft, but this is no homage to the past: the sound of Time Will Tell is very much its own. The production, arrangement and musicianship are all first rate. There's some really precise guitar leads (with a touch of fuzz), backed up by some very intricate and 'spacey' keyboard work. The vocals are very strong too. They're not afraid to try harmonies either! A very modern-sounding rock/psych album indeed.
