This album is simply a must-have, a fantastically produced psychedelic artifact that, to my ears at least, never falls into that slushy kind of kitsch bandwagon-psych that filled the airwaves then too, and which reviewer Mr Hoffman must be referring to. Psych fans can rest assured that this is an album without embarrassing moments, maybe with some rather extravagant overdubs, but these are all both creatively and tastefully used. Get this while you can, the dull cover does not all reflect the colour and beauty of this album, every song on which is a mini-masterpiece made to be listened to with headphones. If you like this, get Eternity's Children's first album, which has equally remarkable production from Boettcher.

Wow, how bloated can one get when reviewing a simply great album.
I couldn't stay silent after reading WT Hoffman's review of this superb album. Granted, there is a lack of cohesion on the album, and admittedly, Boettcher's songs do shine more brightly. But one has to realize what an amazing achievement was this album for then or any time.
I was blessed to actually attend one of the sessions for this album, having worked for Gary Usher for many years. Everyone
in the room knew they were creating something that would stand the test of time.So it didn't sell well? Is that the album
or the public's fault? Ever heard of Jane Siberry? She doesn't sell well, but she makes amazing music.
I count myself very fortunate to have this gem on CD.
Compared to most of the well-produced garbage today that "sells well", I would take this album any day.
Just saying.

Where has this album been all my life? I like 60's - 70's music but had never heard of this band, heard of them mentioned on a music site, and thought they sounded interesting. It blew me away, and should have been massive, but Unfortunatly flopped, the melodies, harmonies, inventive production and heart in this album is staggering.
Standouts for me are Claudia on Thursday ,It's you and the beautiful There is nothing more to say. This song, although brief, is light years ahead of any thing else around at the time. Easily as good as The Beatles or Beach Boys.
All I can say , is get this album.

A real gem of an album from this super-group. These songs feature little sound nuggets hidden within the music. Spot-on harmonies, catchy melodies, thoughtful songwriting and great sound engineering makes this collection an ageless hit. I am not easily impressed, but this album really does it for me.

Most of these reviews have pretty much covered it all, but I would like to add that Curt Boetcher also made some great contributions to the band The Sunshine Company which is another one of my personal favorites. I have "Begin" on both CD and the original vinyl, but I'm curious to know why the last verse in "Some Sunny Day" was left out on the CD release. In this case, I'm glad I have the album but the two bonus tracks on the CD make up for that missing line. Thanks Curt -- we miss you!

Begin is one of the greatest pop albums of the 1960's. Millennium was the brainchild of producer Curt Boettcher. This album is full of lush melodies that you would expect from Curt. It also includes over the top production you expect from him. But this album takes everything he did a step further and it is one of true masterpieces of the late 1960s. This album is a must for anyone who is fan of Psychedelic pop music. This is Sunshine Pop music at it's best.

I heard 5 a.m. over the loudspeaker at a hotel where I was working. I heard it one time and never again. That song stuck in my head. I had to find that song. Great lyrics, great music. All around awesome song. Graham "Sandy" Salisbury is not only a great singer and songwriter, but also a great author. Please search him out.
