Album Review

Though this obscure 1970 LP falls into the general folk-psych rock category, its focus is so all-over-the-place that it's hard to get a read on it. The group is Anglo-American, and at times the record seems very influenced by the poppiest side of American folk-rock, particularly in the blends of male and female vocal harmonies, which are extremely reminiscent of the Mamas & the Papas' approach in places. Yet there are also songs that have a more specifically British, gentle, reserved, acoustic quality; a character portrait of "Mr. Jones" with a whimsical British feel; and occasional off-the-wall burning fuzzy psychedelic guitar.

File under the section with the many stylistically confused rock bands of the period who had some talent and tried hard to say something important, but didn't quite have the goods.

Three of its musicians are members of the collective Ambiances Magnétiques, so the label released all their albums. Wondeur Brass started as a sextet in the early ‘80s. By 1987 the...
