Randy Johnson - The Gift of Randy Johnson (Excellent rare 1970 US Baroque Psychedelic Pop LP released on Amaret)


Here we have an obscure offering by a mysterious “contemporary troubadour” as the album puts it.
Mr. Randy Johnson - he’s intense, vibrant and sincere with his musical statements.
This is a cool album if your looking for some psychedelic strangeness.
The album starts off innocently enough with the fine orchestrated baroque gem ‘Beauty’.
After that, the fun starts…‘Gift Of Music’ is a wild mix of brass and psychedelic effects, an album highlight for sure.
Randy even works in the sitar – check out the killer psych induced ‘Garden Of Love’.
Both ‘Candles and Cake’ and ‘And I Say I Love Her’ brim with tempo change ups and catchy pop moves with the former being another album standout with the addition of a short fuzz solo.
‘Hans Polka’ la la’s around with slight fuzz work and charming psych-pop melodies.
A fun, enjoyable psychedelic set.
