SST - Soft Soul Transition (Transition Records. 1970)


Here's another very rare treat for you. This is some california pop psych / blue eyed soul with some very good song writing. Quite collectible among the private press pop psych collector's. My copy sold for $300.00 but I of course recorded the album for posterity. Strangely, the first 30 seconds of B1, an I'm a believer cover, which is one of the most boring songs on the album luckily, has a pressing defect that makes a lot of noise, otherwise the record was unplayed. So, the one real strong stand out to me is the track Move it on Down. It's almost like a Beck song actually. Great catchy riff and vocals. Oh and I am aware that another blog was hosting this recently, but I dunno how good there vinyl copy was (or if it was cd) and or the recording quality, so I hope I can offer this to those who missed it or need a premium rip. Overall, it's really not a top recommendation of mine, but it's still fun to listen to.

SST - Soft Soul Transition. Transition Records. 1970. From Bay Area.

I dunno why I talked this down so much, there is a fucking killer song on this album, it seriously sounds like Beck 30 years too soon. Enjoy.
