Label: GNP Crescendo
Originally released in 1967
After their early success with 1966 super single "Pushing Too Hard", Sky Saxon's THE SEEDS did not struggle in creativity while trying to top their monstrous start. After their self titled debut album and A Web Of Sounds, with third album Future (1967), the Seeds shifted towards a more psychedelic and obscure vision that may have alienated them from their garage pop audience but that gave the band a chance to align themselves with a new sound though without abandoning their original inventive. Strongly inspired by Sgt Pepper's ambience, Future seems less pop oriented and less appealing to a mass audience. A pearl for insiders that still sounds fresh, honest and highly inspired. Probably too ahead of their times, the Seeds disbanded in 1970 after never releasing another top selling hit.
