Mark Eric (whose real name is Mark Eric Malmborg) wasn't the most original composer of his day, and yet years after its 1968 release his long out-of-print one-off soft pop LP for Revue (a UNI/MCA subsidiary) commands a fairly high price from soft pop collectors who've managed to nab themselves a copy. The reason? A Midsummer's Day Dream is treasured by collectors as one of the more perfect blends of soft pop and surf pop, with appropriately accenting vibraphones and French horns, pseudo-studio jazzy/soft pop melodies, "bah bah bah" harmonies, and moody string arrangements reminiscent of Curt Boettcher's productions of Sagittarius and the Millennium.

There he met Bob Raucher, an engineer at local KHJ radio station (who wondered why Eric wasn't in high school). Raucher took a liking to the suntanned surfer/songwriter,...
