OWEN-B - SAME (Usa Mansfield, OH)

OWEN-B 1970 (Mus-i-col 101209)

"Owen-B" was released on their own Ohio-based Mus-i-col label. Self-produced, anyone expecting to hear another set of mid-1960s blue-eyed soul/garage was probably somewhat disappointed by the album. Similarly anyone buying into dealer hype claiming this was a set of mind melting psych was gonna be disappointed. Those comments aren't meant to be taken as criticisms since the collection's quite commercial and somewhat of a lost classic. Featuring ten band-penned originals, musically the set bounced all over the spectrum, including stabs at stoner acoustic folk ('All We Are Asking'), pop ('My Friends'), country-rock ('Weekend'), and conventional hard rock ('Share'). Normally something as diverse wouldn't hold up particularly well, but when packaged with killer melodies, great harmony vocals, some first-rate guitar (courtesy of Terry Van Auker ) and a real sense of fun and enjoyment you ended up with one of the rare exceptions to the rule. Personal favorites include 'Leavin' It All Up To You' and 'Out On My Own' (which add a bit of progressive complexity to the mix) and ''. Easy to see why folks hype the album, even if it isn't for the right reasons. Shame they didn't record a follow up set.
