Catalog no.: JPR0007107

Item ID: 342335

Repress of 500 copies on transparant light green vinyl. 'Corridor Of Faces' is held in high regards as one of the rarest psych albums ever made. Their sole offering recorded in Massachusetts in 1968, is a cohesive, solid, classic album in every sense. The first remarkable trait of Lazy Smoke's sound is the lead vocals similarity to John Lennon. Upon digging just a little deeper below the surface, we instead find a darker tone and a patient, eerie feeling resonating through the songs.
While bands like The Beatles and Love were singing about love, lament and hallucinated travel experiences, the songs on 'Corridor Of Faces' get sincerely dark right away. Even the seemingly-light teenage love-themed 'Sarah Saturday' shares an undercurrent of on-the-edge uncertainty. It's this undercurrent that calls to mind comparisons to 'Forever Changes' era Love. Originally privately pressed in MA in an edition of only 500 copies in 1968.

Also available: CORRIDOR OF FACES (CD), CORRIDOR OF FACES (ONYX) (LP).
