Larry and Myra "Eat the Day" (US Psych Folk 1970)

One of the best USA private pressing folk psych LPs from 1970. Male/female duo with sparse exotic backup by guitars, cello, keyboards, harmonica, flute, percussion etc. Heartfelt dreamy vocals weave about mystically on superb tracks like "The Child In Us", "Rain In The Air", Silver Rings", "Dance Of The Sea", Shadow Of The Hawk" etc. "The Hills Of Timothy" is just mesmerizing. Earthy yet ethereal hippie sounds....

01. Awake Arise
02. The Child In Us
03. Cool In The Evening Sun
04. Shadow Of The Hawk
05. Dance Of The Sea
06. Tell Me Baby
07. I Can't Go

08. Hills Of Timothy
09. Rain In The Air
10. The Music Box
11. Rocking Thru My Time
12. Silver Rings
13. Two Wild Horses
14. Eat The Day

Argh!
Please repost - another one that has timed-out.
We need to find a way to stop the time-outs - maybe form a small group to click on a selection of the titles every other week or something?

Lizardson, you are way-cool man!

This is a very satisfying album!
There are many near-classic vignettes on here - "Awake Arise," "Hills of Timothy" ... incredible one-off.

Thanks so much!

Your bodyguard of Playboy Centerfold gals should reward you justly for this one, Lizardson !!!!

awake! arise! unbuckle your eyes
listen to the tune of day
when you’re done, unbutton your tongue
let us hear what you can say

doors and hearts will open wide
with the twist of one little key
if you can’t find which one it is
go your own way if you please

morning red and evening gray
sends the traveller on his way
morning gray and evening red
watch the rainfall on your head

if all the world was paper
and all the sea was filled with ink
if all the trees were bread and cheese
what would there be for us to drink?

awake! arise! unbuckle your eyes
listen to the tune of day
when you’re done, unbutton your tongue
let us hear what you can say!

Another magnificent album. Your blog is a breath of fresh air. And my shopping list has risen to dangerous heights ever since I found out this place (which is merely a week ago!). Please keep up the good work; you make many people happy :)
