Album Review

About 35 years after it was recorded, this album presents a lost chapter in the annals of late-'60s California sunshine pop. The story behind it is rather convoluted, but basically these are demos for the second Sagittarius album, The Blue Marble, using various members of the Millennium and some non-Millennium members. It's not exactly a Millennium album, although the Millennium's Sandy Salisbury, Lee Mallory, Curt Boettcher, and Joey Stec all wrote material, as well as doing some of the vocals (the liner notes and credits are a little foggy as to who sang and played what). Some of these songs would end up on The Blue Marble in different versions; others wouldn't be included on The Blue Marble in any form.

Those soaked in the Curt Boettcher world might be surprised by the pronounced gentle country-rock feel in some cuts, particularly those penned by Sandy Salisbury. It's appropriate music for blissing out to on a Maui beach, though not at the top of the stack for such moods by any means.

Millennium's resultant album would find no commercial success and only half-baked artistic success, but nonetheless retains some period charm. Influenced in roughly equal measures by the Association, the Mamas and the Papas, the Smile-era Beach Boys, Nilsson, the Left Banke, and the Fifth Dimension, Boettcher and his...
