3 stars The first recording by Edgar Froese's band, The Ones. No kozmische music here, and even less electronic sequencers. The songs featured on this EP are just rocky and catchy soft psychedelic pop rock songs.

Lady Greengrass opens with a mysterious ambiance, delicate vocals and alternates fast and slow passages. The sound is always clear. You can also hear the word "tangerine" sung; was this predestinated ? Love of Mine is much more bluesy, in the vein of Jefferson Airplane. However this track has a little originality: a few seconds of break with oriental instruments and strange percussions.

Although one cannot guess the musical direction that will take Edgar Froese and co. few years after by hearing this, The Ones recorded good and enjoyable psych-pop songs in the late 60s that could quite equal the tunes released the same time by other well known bands. The talent was already here ! 3,5 stars !

3 stars As it was said, these two singles have nothing in common with TD's traditional & original synth based soundscapes and psych-kraut jams. However in these early years we can detect a certain ability to associate a standard psych pop rock with fuzzed/freak out guitars. It also contains vocals in a discreet stoned rock mood. The band rapidly reaches to a professional statue with much achieved compositions (despite of the use of conventional schemes of 60's beat music). "Lady Greengrass" is a powerful, dynamic rocking excursion with excellent lyrics and short guitar solo experimentations. "Love of Mine" is closed to 60's songs from the famous "The Animals", including a nice groove and Hammond organs. Not for TD usual fans but highly recommended for fans of British psych pop acts.

2 stars Did Froese really write "Your skirt's so short that your thighs are showin"?

"Lady Greengrass" is not actually a Tangerine Dream release, but a single by a band called The Ones. Released in 1967, this German single was the band's only official release. The reason it is of interest to Tangerine Dream fans is the presence of a young Edgar Froese in the line up. It has since gained a semi-official status in the Tangs discography through inclusion of both the A and B sides on the "Nebulous Dawn" box set compilation. That set contains the band's first four albums in full, plus both sides of the rare single "Ultima Thule".

As for "Lady Greengrass", which Froese plays on but had no part in writing, the song has little in common with the work of Tangerine Dream during any stage of their career. This is a pretty straightforward psychedelic pop song with dreamy lyrics and echoed vocals. The best comparison is probably with the lighter Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd material such as "See Emily play". Perhaps coincidentally (perhaps not) the lyrics include the line " Puff the trees turn tangerine, Puff the sky is suddenly green, Her eyes breath in a state of mind, She's beginning to fly".

The B-side "Love of mine", which Froese did co-write, is more of a rocker, the opening stanza " Your skirt's so short that your thighs are showin, You move so fine that gets me going" reflecting the formative years of the young men involved.

As a single in its own right, this is an adequate piece of 60's psych. In terms of the Tang's history, it has little relevance musically.

3 stars One year before Tangerine Dream were first founded, four years before "Electronic Meditation," this single, the only release by The Ones, was Edgar Froese's first foray into recording. While bearing very little resemblance to anything that would come later, Lady Greengrass/Love of Mine is stil ... (read more)
