Recensie

Kind of a minor-league version of the Doors, Clear Light were a West Coast phenomenon, and although they didn't last too long, were an interesting group. A very good slice of Los Angeles psychedelia, Clear Light were a six-piece band that combined folk, rock, psychedelia, and even a touch of classical to their sound. The end result, though, is a little ponderous and pretentious, but strangely listenable. The big hit off this album (produced by Paul Rothchild and engineered by Bruce Botnick) was "Mr. Blue," a psychedelic folk song written by Tom Paxton. It's over six minutes long and a bit overbaked, but it does have an odd appeal. The finer moments are guitarist Bob Seal's psychedelic folk-rock songs, namely "With All in Mind" and "They Who Have Nothing." Singer Cliff DeYoung went on to have a successful acting career, bass player Doug Lubahn played on the early Doors albums, Dallas Taylor went on to drum for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and John Sebastian, and keyboardist Ralph Schuckett became one of the more popular West Coast session players and arrangers. A lot of talent in a short-lived ensemble offering up dated but charming West Coast psychedelia. [Ace/Big Beat's 2016 reissue of Clear Light adds eight bonus tracks to the original album, almost all of them unreleased. Two of these are pulled from a single released when the band was called the Brain Train -- they're trashier and nervier, particularly "Me" -- and there's an alternate stereo mix of "She's Ready to Be Free," but the bulk of the tracks are outtakes, highlighted by "Bye Bye Boogie Man" (which does not boogie) and "Dawn Lights the Way" (which almost does).] ~ Matthew Greenwald
