Mortimer - Mortimer (1968)


Personnel incl:

GUY M. MASSON gtr A
TOM SMITH gtr A
TONY VAN BENSCHOTEN gtr A

ALBUM:
1(A) MORTIMER (Philips PHS 600-267) 1968

45s:
1 Dedicated Music Man/To Understand Someone (PS) (Philips 40524) 1968
2 Slicker Beauty Hints/Ingenue's Theme (Philips 40567) 1968

A trio from upstate New York. Their poppy-rock mix comes from a folk-rock direction, with some psychy moves reminiscent of the Beatles and the Hollies. Their album contains one good psych track Where Dragons Guard The Doors, but the remainder (including tracks like Singing To The Sunshine and Life's Sweet Magic) is more in the soft-rock/Bee Gees vein.
All the songs written and arranged by Smith/Masson/Van Benschoten/Conga and their album was produced by Daniel Secunda for B.B.&D. Productions.
