If you remember Spirit and Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus, I know a big smile has just come over your face.
But if you were born in the After Beatles age you are probably scratching your head. If so, my advice is to click this link NOW and order it up.
Warning: the 30 second listening samples do not do this album justice. Songs like “Nothin’ to Hide”, “Mr. Skin”, “Animal Zoo”, and “Nature’s Way” are way too complicated and intricate to be understood and appreciated in only 30 seconds. This was a drug-induced “concept” album after all.
While researching this band, I was thrilled to read that Twelve Dreams achieved “Gold” status in 1976 and many of the comment reviews state it was “one of the best rock albums of all time.” I could not agree more. The only reason I can think of why Twelve Dreams was not a double-platinum mega hit was because when it was released in 1970, there was such a nuclear explosion of great and powerful music that it simply got lost in the shuffle. (Which may account for why this album finally went “Gold” six years after it was released.)
