Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-03-03
Another great re-issue from Erik Lindgren and Arf Arf records: this time the early 60’s story of a “local band done good”, a group of 16-17 year olds who had a hit (title track) due to simple local support that almost knocked off the Beatles on the charts. Retrospective of their pop garage, surfy recordings ca. 1965, with some classic covers too. Great old stuff, an ode to a music success story/paradigm that doesn’t exist anymore.

1) title track, hit song, upbeat w/ great fender guitar tone
2) slower more romantic/sad feel
3) Zombies stalwart, beauty “tell her no, no, no….”
4) upbeat
5) slow dance feel
6) upbeat, Beach Boys feel
7) upbeat, w/ whistling
8) cover of “Pretty Woman”, better than Roy’s
9) rocking blues feel
10) harmonica laden melodic, very Beatles
11) white boy version of Johnny B. Goode
12) upbeat fun feel
13) killer fender twang reverb tone
14) romantic Beatles feel, harmonies
15) cool rock, “would you believe”
16) psychey w/ appearance of organ
17) romantic, sweet lyrics, “awww” feel
18) hang on sloopy feel
19) more of a late 60’s “arranged” pop feel w/ brass and harmonies
20) brass feel continues, rockin though
21) different rawer lead vocs, fuzzy guitar and organ lends a go-go firl “60’s” feel
22) slow dance romantic, Hammond organ, ballroom dimmed lights
23) upbeat handclaps, banana splits feel, remake of the title track
24) bouncy bitter sweet
25) cinematic feel, heavy arrangements
