The Fraternal Order of the All is really Andrew Gold ("Thank you for being a Friend" and many others) with a little help from his friends like Grahm Gould from 10cc doing note-perfect stylistic sendups (or homages if you will) of the various bands of the late 60's like the Beatles, Beach Boys, Byrds, The Zombies and many others. He does a FANTASTIC job of re-creating the styles and atmospheres of these great bands both vocally and instrumentally. This is the hippest trip this side of Strawberry Fields.
The Fraternal Order of the All does for the psychedelic music of the 60's what the Rutles did for the Beatles and what Spinal Tap did for Heavy Metal music. If you love the music styles of your wonder years run - don't walk to your nearest purveyor of musical CD's (like right here for instance) and buy this album!

Several years ago, I heard a tune on Music Space via my satellite subscription, and eventually called it's customer service number to find a way to contact Music Space's customer service people to learn the title of a Beatles tune played through their service that I had somehow managed to miss in the colorful blur of the seventies.

Turns out the name of the tune was Rainbow People, and the artist was Andrew Gold, not the Beatles.

I have always had a warm spot for some of Gold's hits, namely the high-school buddies anthem Thank You For Being A Friend (later misappropriated by the TV show Golden Girls) and Lonely Boy, another high-school anthem for guys like me - I was almost an outcast, saved from that fate only by my own well-disciplined and valuable but small following which was made up of boys and girls who had been stupidly rejected by the cliques which I had no use for whatsoever.

I had always considered Gold to be a nice sounding "one trick pony," talented but limited in depth and staying power.

That was before I heard Rainbow People, and started tracking it down, and ended up with the title of a wonderful album I couldn't buy for any amount of money for several years.

As time passed, I discovered that Rainbow People was part of an album Gold produced merely to satisfy his own creative urges, and perhaps satisfy a few of his rabid fanboys.

That album's name varies, but is generally known as Fraternal Order of the All - a make-believe band Gold wrote himself as the lead singer/guitarist of just to have all kinds of sonic fun spoofing the great masters of sixties through eighties rock and roll.

There have been lots of "spoof" albums (predictably, Louden Wainwright III comes to mind...

Simply one of the best recording projects I have ever heard, since The Beatles, "Sgt. Peppers", The Beach Boys, "Pet Sounds" and the never released, "Smile" album. I listen to this cd all the time. It's Great! Wonderful! Captivating! Heavenly Produced!
You will not be wasting your money purchasing this CD. Even if you have to purchase it as an import.
You will treasure this CD for a lifetime.
Thanks Andrew! I only wish you would release a volume II.

If you are the least bit interested in Sgt. Pepper era music, buy this record. It is the best of what you would hear from The Beach Boys, The Byrds,and The Beatles.
