Reviews of albums by the public can be a little twisted. Many don't give real opinions of what they hear, it's just a matter of their own taste. Thus lower ratings and derogatory remarks. The other reviewer of this album even recommended an artist, Flashes Expanded, who are so inept that they weren't up to garage band level yet. Most aren't aware that between 1966 and 1970 emerged more new artists than any other time. The music scene was so hot it was molten. Even regional labels were signing bands that had any semblance of talent, taking the chance that maybe, just maybe, they'd catch on, thus the market over-saturated. Musically, Growing Concern was a talented group. Their vocals were especially good, their instrumental work was decent, their songwriting was decent, at least one song having the potential of being a minor hit. All in all, for collectors of the Psychedelic/Sunshine Pop era, Growing Concern is one to have.

This band was not inept. The vocals were celestial and the playing wasn't bad either, especially the lead guitar, but the bass is workmanlike and the drummer just wasn't aggressive for me. The tunes also seem to blend together and have a sameness about them. They make me think of the Love Exchange, Afterglow, the Art of Loving and to a lesser degree, We Five. The Tangerine Zoo or Lacewing they are not, but I got this cd for six bucks and it was not wasted. There are several good songs on it, although I don't have in front of me presently, but their Mr. You're a Better Man than I is decent and the opening track is like stardust.

Quite an impressive aggregation (7 musicians) originally from Chicago, often called "psychedelic" (probably because nobody bothered to listen to the album), and praised for their pleasant vocal harmonies and melodic guitar work.
In fact, it is unashamed third-rate West Coast pop outfit with a pale hint of decaffeinated psychedelia about them - nice clean boys & girls, trying to be cool and to cash in on the new trend, but also to avoid offending parents, or being banned from playing at high school dances. If there is anything to admire about the band, it's the way they admire themselves while singing their elaborated harmonies.Pleasant vocals were not a novelty or a hot item since "Mamas & Papas" ("Growing Concern", without catchy tunes, couldn't be a challenge to "Mamas"), while melodic guitar work was confined to some two-bit twangy chords, better fitting some early 60s beat combo. There is some uninspiring organ thrown in for good measure. Few shy ventures into acid folk on the first side (yes, Bonnie McDonald and Mary Garstki have nice voices - so what's new? nice voices were dime a dozen in the market those days), and more pleasant mothballed pop covers on the second. To hear the real thing, try Flashes (Exp) or Floating Opera.
It was recorded and released in 1968 under personal supervision of Bob Shad (owner of Mainstream label, which contributed its share of wannabe pop-stars in the 60s). The album is considered to be one of the better Mainstream releases (can you imagine worse ones?)
If the band suffered from any growing concern, it should have been the wish to become famous.
