Album Review

Mortimer was a short-lived psych-pop group that originally hailed from New York. In 1968, the bandmembers found themselves in London, working with record producer Daniel Secunda (brother of Procol Harum manager Tony Secunda) after signing a production deal with Secunda's B.B. & D.

There are several standout tracks, including the Baroque "Where Dragons Guard the Doors" and the softer vocal harmonies of "Singing to the Sunshine" and "Life's Sweet Music." [Rev-Ola's long-overdue 2006 reissue adds six bonus tracks including 45 mixes, demos and a strange song dedicated to beauty tips ("Slicker "Beauty Hints'").]
