A trip to your local Salvation Army thrift store is likely to reveal some albums on the Rite record label – scores of awful home-made albums that would seem to have no artistic reason to exist. I’ve got a feeling most collectors would lump The Sands Of Time into the same lot – but something about them’s got me hooked. Back cover photos of three college guys with guitars and upright bass would seem to indicate a folk lp, but putting the needle to the groove reveals instead a Holiday Inn lounge cocktail kind of jazz with show-offy piano frills, trumpet leads, muzak harmonies, and percussion shuffling along in a light bossa nova beat. Dam near threw it out after the first listen, somehow it found its way back to the turntable – now it literally grows on me with every play. Could be schlock, could be gauche charm – whatever it is I like it. Then again they just might be your bummer for the day. Member Pete Carlson went on to record several solo lps.
