Overview

Daughters of Albion is happy Californian pop
ock music, imbued with streaks of the kind of weirdness that only cropped up in otherwise normal pop
ock records in the late 1960s. Some of the harmonies are good, if a little on the super-sweet and high side. The odd interjections of orchestration and weird little effects -- most likely producer Leon Russell was a strong contributor in this regard -- make this more interesting than you might expect from the basis of the songs alone. If you're looking for rough ballpark cult figures that might indicate whether you should seek this out, it's kind of between the albums of the era by Millennium and the Judy Henske-Jerry Yester duo. With its frequent good-time bounce, it's closer to Millennium than the darker and more resonant Henske-Yester collaboration, though it doesn't sound extremely close to either act, and isn't as good as either. Still, the better tracks, like "Candle Songs," conjure an appealing never-never fairyland, far more innocent than those devised by psychedelic peers like the Jefferson Airplane on "White Rabbit." [The 2012 reissue on Now Sounds includes mono 45 versions of "Well Wired" and "Story of Sad."]
