THE GOLDEBRIARS (EPIC 1964) Japan mastering cardboard sleeve + 2 bonus




The Goldebriars were an early 60s folk quartet which is most notable for including a young Curt Boettcher as a guitarist and vocalist. The group also included two sisters, Dotti and Sheri Holmberg, and Ron Neilson, lead guitarist and banjo player. They recorded two very obscure albums for Epic Records in 1964 before adding drummer Ron Edgar to their lineup, who would later be a part of the groups The Music Machine and The Millennium. They recorded a third album in late 1964, in what has been described as a prototypical folk-rock vein. A single from this proposed album, June Bride Baby b/w I'm Gonna Marry You was released in early 1965, but the group broke up afterwards and the album remains unreleased.

Curt Boettcher would go on a successful stint as a producer, songwriter and musician, eventually putting together the highly-regarded late-60s group The Millennium (which also featured Ron Edgar). Nothing has been heard from the others, except for Dotti Holmberg, when Sundazed Records surprisingly released an album of demos that she recorded in the mid-60s called Sometimes Happy Times, including one demo that had ended up on the Magic Time anthology and a demo of a song (I Sing My Song) that would later be included on the second Sagittarius album...
