Request
"The Fallen Angels" (US Psych 1968)

The first album (entitled simply "The Fallen Angels") received a very favorable response but had no top ten hits due in large part to a sub-par production effort by the recording studio and an ill-conceived promotional strategy aimed at the conventional tastes of AM listeners.

Needless to say, their music was too "far out" for the "straight" audience and received very limited exposure to the burgeoning "underground" music scene associated with west coast bands such as the Doors, Jefferson Airplane and Grateful Dead. Despite playing to wildly enthusiastic crowds at venues all along the east coast, The Fallen Angels had not been able to establish their identity nationwide

Even with all the problems concurrent with it's release, the first album contains some real gems that reflect the attitudes of both hope and cynicism which prevailed during the psychedelic era. Listen carefully to songs like "Introspective Looking Glass", "Your Mother's Homesick, Too" and the album's tour de force, "No Way Out".
