Limited Vinyl Edition
Both adventurous and appealingly innocent, the Love Exchange's eponymous 1968 album stands as a perfect example of Aquarian-age sunshine pop. Boasting a swirling, jangly sound and a distinctive lead singer in 16-year-old Bonnie Blunt, the Los Angeles quintet burned briefly but brightly. They remained together long enough to make this album, which remains a favorite of '60s aficionados.
Led by the buoyant, infectious psych-folk-pop single "Swallow the Sun," The Love Exchange perfectly captures the open-minded, open-hearted spirit of its era. Such tunes as "Flying High," "Meadow Memory," "Saturday Night Flight 505" and a take on Allen Toussaint's classic "Get Out of My Life Woman" are distinguished by the band?s male/female vocal blend, by Walt Flannery?s now-sound organ work and by the interplay of guitarists Dan Altchuler and Fred Barnett. It's music that plays like the perfect soundtrack for a Griffith Park Love-In.
Pressed on 180-gram vinyl, mastered from the original analog tapes and featuring complete original cover art, this Sundazed edition is limited to only 1000 copies!
