Prog Reviewer
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 !

Modrigue | 3/5 |
