TRADEWINDS - EXCURSIONS (KAMA SUTRA 1967) Japan K2 mastering cardboard sleeve + 2 bonus



A rare full album from The Tradewinds a wonderful harmony pop group with a Sunshine Pop feel! The Tradewinds have a style that's heavily in a Beach Boys mode, sunny California harmonies on the vocals, and a sort of post-Pet Sounds approach to songwriting, one that makes for some really compelling songs in the set! The group's best known for their "New York's A Lonely Town" hit, but the whole album is great, filled with inventive songs, compelling vocals, and cool arrangements from Jimmy Wisner and Artie Butler, two very groovy talents. Titles include "Mind Excursion", "Bad Misunderstanding", "Only When I'm Dreamin", "Small Town Bring Down", "To Be With You", "Little Susan's Dreamin", and "Huggin In The Hall". CD also features 2 bonus tracks."That's When Your Heartaches Begin" and "Hard Life".

I guess you are right.
East coast soft sunshine pop or whatever it is called,is always inferior to the west coast.
Southern California is the key for this kind of sound!
