The Churls: The Churls (CAN 1968)

The Churls - The Churls 

A&M – SP-4169 (US) promotional copy

 

a nice near mint copy i bought in december 2012. to be honest, this is one of the LPs i only bought because of a single track on it. the rest of the album is not bad, but doesnt kick ass as much as that one song, thus only 4 out of 5 stars for this LP.

this self-titled record of the churls is the first of two LPs the group recorded. they are from canada, but the albums were issued in the US only at the time (as far as i know), and you often find promotional copies (like this one). they obviously didnt hit the big fame, but their output is decent.

my favourite track is the third one on the second side, ‘time piece‘. i added it as a youtube clip at the end of this post, and i assure you you wont be disappointed! its a heavy psych rocker i always like to put on compilations together with stuff like ultimate spinach or captain beefheart. the in my opinion second best song on the album is ‘gypsy lee‘ which you will also find below.

(as always: depending on the country from which you access the internet you may need a youtube-unblocker to watch this. try proxtube, it did the trick for me)
