Newbury Park (Cream CR-9003) 1968

 

 

 

 

 

This 2-guy 2-girl group’s debut on the mainstream Cream label has a professional pop-rock and ballads sound that takes you back to commercial hit radio circa 1970. The spiritual angle isn’t as developed as on their subsequent Creative Sound lp, though you can find it peeking through on tracks like ‘My God And I’. Includes classy covers of ‘Green Tambourine’, ‘Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah’ and Nilsson’s ‘I Will Take You There’. Some Mamas & Papas sentiment sprinkled about along with a touch of lilting Bacharach pop. Three very pretty acoustic originals with just the girls on vocals open side two: ‘My Own 1889’, ‘When I Am Young’ and ‘You Only Know Me’. (Ken Scott – The Archivist).
