Richard Twice - s/t (US soft psych 1969) Fading Yellow artist - SUBLIME!

Named after the mysterious duo of Richard Atkins and Richard Manning, it’s beautifully crafted songs and glorious melodies have assured it an ever-growing cult reputation. The sleeve tells us these two songwriters are “as different as the sun and the moon in their daily lives, and yet who can sing songs that go directly to the heart of the matter, with a seemingly single mind and voice.” Featuring top-notch backing from musicians such as Drake Levin (Paul Revere & the Raiders), Larry Knechtel (Bread), Mark Tulin (The Electric Prunes) and Rusty Young (Poco), it’s bound to appeal to all fans of high-quality early ’70s U.S. pop-rock. –“This is a virtually perfect pop album, the kind of thing that would have ruled the charts if the wind had been blowing the right way that month.” (Acid Archives)
