Editorial Reviews

2011 collection from the '60s Sunshine Popsters. The Critters, famous for the hits 'Mr. Dieingly Sad' and 'Younger Girl', cut two brilliant but criminally obscure soft psychedelic LPs for the celebrated New York-based label Project 3 Recordings. Awake In A Dream: The Project 3 Recordings presents both Project 3 LPs-1968's Touch'n Go and 1969's Critters- in their entirety, plus the non-LP track 'Lisa But Not The Same.' All of this material has been out of print for over 40 years and is now finally making its worldwide debut on CD. The 16-page, full-color booklet includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of original band members. Now Sounds.

I've always loved the Critters' singles; all two of them! "Mr. Dieingly Sad" kind of defines a summer of '66 day at the beach! And while I've had their Kapp recordings compiled in the Taragon Records re-release, I wasn't even aware that they went on to record more.

So I went out on a limb to learn more about them in this Project 3 re-issue, and was delightfully surprised! It all carries the same folk-rock theme as their earlier records, but this time with more progressive and/or psychedelic touches thrown in. The Critters should be proud of their output: it is consistent, "sunshine-y", and holds up wonderfully all these decades later. Very highly recommended!

As much as I love my acid rock and free jazz, I have a secret place in my heart for 1960's soft rock--if its well done. While people like Bobby Goldsboro and Gary Pucket were untouched by the decades experimentation, brought by the Beatles, even the most radio friendly bands added elements like classical instruments and jazz spices like vibraphones. The Critter's "Mr Dyingly Sad," is such a song.

I was at first let down to find this was not on this compilation, which includes the two albums the band recorded for Enoch Light's Project Three label, also home to the magnificent Free Design.

Awake A Dream does have its share if straight 1960s soft pop, though even these tracks, recorded 1968-69, have more layering and textures than the mid-1960s tracks, such as "Mr Dyningly Sad."

"I've been wanting to touch her since I can remember," is the line that open's the CD, with the track, "Touch and Go." A line you might not have heard in 1965 starts a 1968 track from the album, perhaps an indication of new freedom and risk. The CD hits its stride with the jazzy polyphony of the multi-part "Cold Sunday Morning," you hear this is a band that had the potential to be more than a three minute singles band.

As the 1969 material comes in, you start to hear more Hammond Organs, and, slightly heavier guitars, and sounds associated with emerging FM rock, even sitars and jazz flute, showing this bands ability to push into progressive terrain. By the end of the Cd your hearings a transformed band, with large jazz interludes integrated into the vocal pop.

Interesting here is what is not included, the amazing "Look At The Girls" by Giant Jelly Bean Copout, which was the Critters preforming under an alias and flying into Brazil '66 airspace.

As is, this is really good pop that dips its toe itself inter interesting spaces, near the end infesting those spaces with..........

well, how many feet does a Critter have
