Volman, Mark / Howard Kaylan - The Phlorescent Leech And Eddie The Phlorescent Leech And Eddie
Pop Used - LP MS 2099 Warner
1972 White Label Promo With Custom And Promo Inserts. Small Top Left Corner Dent. “Mark Volman And Howard Kaylan Opened For The Alice Cooper Group On The Billion Dollar Babies Tour, And The Insanity They Put On Display While Performing This Album Live Was Controlled Insanity, Perhaps The Best Kind. On The Back Of The Phlorescent Leech & Eddie Is A Frank Zappa 200 Motels Film Poster, The Usual Mess One Would Expect From Flo & Eddie, But No Turtles Memorabilia. With The Solid Drumming Of Aynsley Dunbar And Their Incredible Harmonies, Flo & Eddie Are Truly A Mixture Of The Turtles' Pop And The Mothers Of Invention's Unpredictability. What Was So Striking About This Debut Album Before Bob Ezrin Got Ahold Of Them For The Sequel (Maybe That's How They Got The Cooper Tour) Is That It Is Delicious Pop Music Played To Perfection -- As Melodic As Petula Clark -- Just More Difficult To Grasp. When The Boys Get To A Good Hook They Let Go Of It, Maybe A Mental Trigger From All Their Turtles Hits, A Subconscious Effort To Keep This In The Underground, Just On The Cusp Of Being Commercially Viable. What Is Also Striking Is That The Production Work Is Impeccable. The Tragedy Of It All Is That This Stuff Is So Sincerely Off The Wall While Simultaneously Being Serious That Radio Should Have Embraced Much Of It. The Production Values Here Are Immense, A Thick And Deep Sound Beyond The Vocal Work We Expect From These Choir Boys. The Phlorescent Leech & Eddie Is A Glow-In-The-Dark Album Rich With Strong Compositions, Skillful Musicianship, And Extraordinary Vocal Work. It Is A Classic By Two True Rock & Roll Geniuses. "Who But I" Is A Summer Song That The Turtles Would Have Killed For. This Album Is A Treasure Chest Of Ideas By Journeymen That Had A Clue; A Grasp Of What The Rock & Roll Game Is Really All About. As Stated Above, It Is Deliciously Brilliant.” Joe Viglione, AMG.... more details
