GALE GARNETT & THE GENTLE REIGN - SAUSALITO HELIPORT (COLUMBIA 1968) Japan cardboard sleeve DSD mastering
Sausalito Heliport is a beautifully tripped-out material from Gale Garnett & The Gentle Reign titled after the Sausalito Heliport, a northern California complex that housed a bunch of hippy dippy bands in the late 60s! The album's a wonderful blend of Bay Area freedoms and some of the folksier and sweeter touches of east coast groups of the time with instruments include organ, harpsichord, guitar, and lots of cool percussion and a style that's got lots of wild elements, yet always manages to compress them down into cool sunshiney tunes! Titles include "Peace Comes Slowly To The Thrashing Fish", "Water Your Mind", "The Trip Note Song", "Man In The Middle", "Want Ad","Deer In The City",This Year's Child & More...
