Ellie Pop - Ellie Pop 1968

Some rock collectors/fans consider Ellie Pop’s only album a mid 60′s classic. The sound is straight out of 1966/early 1967 (though this album was released in 1968) with strong Beatles influenced melodies and harmonies. Other comparisons that come to mind are a guitar oriented Association (with more balls!) or the Merry-Go-Round, on their less trippy, Beatles inspired material.
There are no psychedelic freakouts, distorted vocals or backward guitar solos on this record. It’s a straight up power pop/pop record, with the occasional odd time signature and plenty of good song arrangements. The production is not as pristine as say the Left Banke’s debut, so the playing and the record itself sound rough or crude at times. The songs reward with repeated listenings though, and the Fab Four injected Whatcha Gonna Do is a personal favorite (those Yeah Yeah Yeah’s are straight out of the early Beatles songbook). Oh! My Friend has a vibe similar to Rubber Soul’s downbeat folk-rock numbers, sad and moody but a worthy song nonetheless. Can’t Be Love is also very good, with some strange twists and turns and excellent thick guitar riffs that hum like a Mustang engine.
No Thanks Mr. Mann is as psychedelic as this record gets, a classic 60′s character sketch with some superb harmonizing and frantic guitar playing toward the end. While the Beatles comparisons are inevitable, this record is still original and very solid. It’s definitely near the top of the heap of Mainstream (record label) releases.

is this post really have a complete scans inserted on the compressed file? cuz i have experience downloading from your blog, it turns out there's just only have Back+CD+Front Full+Front Small artwork on it, dude.
it would be better, if you tell just what it is about the real on your posts. no needs write caption: "Flac + Complete Scans" if there's no really 'complete' at all.

Hello Solidboy,

A friend just say me there is another "val" that comment here...

Sure there is nothing wrong with the other "val" his comment...
But personally if "i" need an album, that would have been for the music, the artwork is a plus but not necessary for me!!!
