Last week we posted Chad & Jeremy’s Of Cabbages And Kings. We probably should have said why. It was one of dozens of albums that had been posted in our comments section over the years, and – before the file-sharing raid – we had planned to highlight of bunch of those hidden albums (we’ll still get to some of them). So, to make it available to everyone, I just popped in an All Music Guide review and threw it up. Alas… demand for some of Chad & Jeremy’s better music took hold, so here (as requested) is their far superior The Arc, from 1968. If Cabbages represented the downside of psychedelia (style over substance), then The Arc illustrated the genre’s promise (as an additional color palette for established styles). I still don’t have time to write this up, so you’re welcomed to in comments. This is the Japanese version with bonus mono single tracks. Since I’m still in Nilsson mode, I’ll point out the curious fate of “Sister Marie,” a Darrel Morrow tune covered by in 1968 by Chad & Jeremy, Nilsson and the Gary Usher/Curt Boettcher psych project, Sagittarius: Present Tense. Morrow must have thought he was the hottest commodity of the era with (at least) three artists clamoring for his tune. But not one of those cover versions ever made it to an album, as two were relegated to lost b-side status, and all three had to wait for the CD era to even be heard by most fans. Amazon has The Arc, as well as C&J’s 2009 re-recordings of material from this era, entitled ARK-eology.
