Neon - s/t - `70 - Paramount Records

This is a rare psych pop lp , produced by tommy james & king. some really great stuff here , much in the vein of early tommy james. i know this has been posted recently as well , but here it is again , lol.


“Their prime claim to fame seems to rest with the fact their 1971 debut album was produced by Tommy James and Bob King (the pair also handled musical arrangements and contributed one song to the set). "Neon" is actually a surprisingly good heavy rock album, with Crabtree penning the majority of the material, the set offered up a nice blend of guitar rock (”Mountain Baby“ - ignore the ponderous drum solo) and more commercial moves (check out the Tommy James and the Shondells-styled harmonies on ”Hold Back My Tears”). Personal favorites were the band's cover of James' “Dark Is the Night“ (always liked that 1960s sitar sound), the rocker ”Can't Stop Myself (From Loving You)” and the mildly psychedelic “Magic Man”. Listening to the album a couple more times, the set sounds like something The Shondells might have done had the ever elected to go for a tighter, AOR audience - that's meant as a compliment.
