Mashmakhan

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Mashmakhan - The Family The Family
Psych Used - LP E 30813 Epic
Beautiful Stereo Original, Radio Station Timing Strip On Front Cover. 1A/1D Stampers. Appears Unplayed. “The Second Album From Underground Canadian Rockers Mashmakhan — With Pierre Senecal (Vocals/Keyboards/Sax/Woodwinds), Rayburn Blake (Guitar), Brian Edwards (Bass) And Gerry Mercer (Drums) — Would Likewise Be Their Final Offering. The Family (1971) Is A Noticeably More Cohesive Collection, And A Thematic Return To The Rural Introspection That Had Influenced Much Of Their Self-Titled Debut. The Opening Pairing Of "Children Of The Sun" And The Title Track "The Family" Continue In The Progressive Rock Leanings Established On Their Earlier Effort, With Senecal's Deft And Ethereal Flute Instantly Evoking Ian Anderson Of Jethro Tull. Blake's Delicate Fretwork Had The Combo's Affective Vocal Harmonies Highlight "The Family" And "Come Again" — Both Of Which Are Inspired By The Likes Of Crosby, Stills & Nash, America And The Eagles. The Childlike Narrative "Prince" Hearkens Back To "As The Years Go By" — Mashmakhan's Only Hit Below The 49th Parallel — With Striking Resemblances To The Famous Children's Parable Of The Same Name By Antoine De Saint-Exupery. "Children Laughing" Is Simply Outstanding, Combining An Intricate Melodic Touch With One Of The Band's Finest And Catchiest Arrangements. Blake's "Couldn't Find The Sun" Is A Funky Groover With A Propelling Rhythm That Is Just This Side Of A Bubblegum Rock Hoedown — That Is, If Such Actually Existed. Yet, It Remains The Perfect Sort Of Freewheelin' Affair That Would Appeal To The Unfettered Nature Of Mashmakhan's Audience.” Lindsay Planer, All Music.... more details
 
Mashmakhan - Mashmakhan Mashmakhan
Psych Used - LP E 30235 Epic
1970 Original Still In Shrink Wrap. Unplayed Copy From The Collection Of A Columbia Record Exec. "Days When We Are Free" Kicks Off Mashmakhan (1970) With A Rousing And Assertive Groove Steeped In Percussive Funk, Showing Off Just What They Are Capable Of. The Slightly Off-Center "I Know I've Been Wrong" Begins With A Moody Introduction, Dominated By Senecal's Punctuating Organ Inflections As They Shore Up The Firm Mid-Tempo Backbeat. "As The Years Go By" Not Only Became The Band's Biggest Hit On Both Sides Of The 49th Parallel, It Was A Million-Seller In (Of All Places) Japan. Although The Lyrics Are Undeniably Puerile, Texturally The Connotations Of The Word 'Love' Remain Eternal. "Afraid Of Losing You" Returns With An Edgier Vibe, Building Off A Solid Memphis-Style R&B And Some Wailing Instrumental Work From The Entire Unit. The Light And Affective "Gladwin" -- The Second Single From The Mashmakhan Album -- Recalls Jethro Tull As Senecal's Impressive Flute Runs Are Adorned By Blake's Delicate Acoustic Guitar, All Of Which Cascade Over The Catchy, Slightly Syncopated Melody. The Trippy "Happy You Should Be" And The Extended Sonic Excursion "Letter From Zambia" Similarly Stand Out And Are Worthy Of Repeated Spins.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.... more details
