The Front Yard (Monday 14th August 2023)

It was a day of heavy showers and accomplishing chores for me today, plus some package deliveries, just popping outside to photograph this splendid rose.

Lozarithm's Lozarhythm Of The Day:
The Fraternal Order Of The All - Space And Time ("Recorded August 2 1967-August 2 1968, Kaleidoscope Studios, Topanga Canyon; Vibrations, Mendecino; Betty Ford Clinic, USA")
This pastiche of the Byrds is the closest to the real thing that I have ever heard. It even has the Jim McGuinn John Coltrane-inspired sitar-like guitar and the Gene Clark harmonies. I heard it on yesterday's Cerys Matthews show, being introduced in her absence by Gideon Coe.
The recording details above are part of the joke as it was actually recorded in 1997 with everything produced, engineered, sung and played by Andrew Gold, though Gene Pool (drums) and Ed Twiddle (maracas) get credits on the album sleeve, which adds "A reasonably good time is guaranteed for all! (Provided you are as screwed up as the band were when they made this indulgent twaddle!)." Graham Gouldman guests on one of the other tracks.
Oddly enough the "real" Byrds began recording their album The Notorious Byrd Brothers on 2 August 1967 with a changed line-up, and had completed Sweetheart Of The Rodeo by 2 August 1968, and on both records had completely ditched the jangly guitar and jazz influences of the sound represented here and had moved into pure country music territory.
