DEERFIELD : NIL DESPERANDUM (US'71)
Houston Rural Psych
This is a solid LP.It's somewhere between acoustic west coast rock,late-period Beatles and Psychedelic Country-Rock (!!!).The songwriting is strong and reasonably ambitious,including a well-realized Kak-like suite on part of side two.The album has a fresh,summery feel to it.Originals (pressed on thick vinyl, in thick covers) come with a clever insert,an envelope that has some of the song lyrics written into letter form.The bass player of this band was in 1960's Austin band Bryan's Blokes,whose members would occasionally fill in for absent 13th Floor Elevators members on live gigs.A 5-piece band with some acid fuzz guitars,organ,mandolin, autoharp,pedal steel,bass,drums and male vocals.
