Clear Light - Clear Light (2002) Retail CD
Clear Light were one of several groups signed by Elektra in 1966. They had started life as The Garnersfield Sanitarium, before changing their name to The Brain Train under the guidance of L A hipster Bud Mathis, they had one single released, 'Me'/'Black Roses' on the Titan label in late 1967 after they had metamorphosed into Clear Light. Paul Rothchild teamed them up with Cliff de Young as vocalist and they recorded the eponymous album during summer 1967. A fantastic melange of folk rock and psychedelia, it can be seen as a missing link between their Elektra peers, Love and The Doors (Bassistmore… Doug Lubahn provided occasional bass duties for The Doors first three albums), who unfortunately they were overshadowed by, having their album release sandwiched between Forever Changes and Strange Days in December 1967. A re-working of 'Black Roses' starts off a clutch of upfront rockers, enhanced by the unique double drums of Dallas Taylor and Michael Ney, which includes 'Sand' and the manic 'The Street Singer' which work well against the more intricate psychedelia of numbers such as 'A Child's Smile' and 'They who Have Nothing'. The highlight of the set for me is 'Night Sounds Loud', a rip roaring sensory overload laden with surreal lyrical imagery and instrumentation that merge to form textures of sound that soar and glide. The CD comes with an extra track - 'She's Ready To be Free' - originally from the sountrack to The President's Analyst, a suberb James Coburn movie in which Clear Light also appear. No more releases were forthcoming, although Clear Light did spend some time in the studio with Danny Kortchmar as additional guitarist.Some members can be heard on the sountrack to the Monkees film Head, providing the instrumentation to 'The Porpoise Song', the most psychedelic track in the entire Monkees catalogue. If you love Love and adore The Doors, then Clear Light will transport you to new realms of delight.
