In the Year 2525 (Exordium & Terminus)/Zager & Evans

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
The Lincoln, NE psych-folk and rock duo of Denny Zager and Richard Evans scored big in 1969 with their only hit single, the apocalyptic acid folk of "In the Year 2525 Exordium Terminus." To be honest, it's shocking that none of the great unwashed tribes have covered it yet; after all, it's still timely.

A beautifully constructed mess of psychedelic folk and soundtrack anthem, it soared on the charts and left quite an impression on masses of hippies still trying to figure out their place in the Age of Aquarius. Evans claimed to have written it in half an hour, and by the sound of the rest of their output -- most of it here on this two-fer by Wounded Bird done in the usual ghetto style of barely enough work to get by in the presentation -- that was the entire worth of their inspiration. The rest of both albums is less stellar '60s nonsense that can't make up its mind whether to be the Lovin' Spoonful, the cast of Hair, or Jimmy Webb.
