Pacific Sound - Forget Your Dream! (1972)
Pacific Sound is a band formed by four dudes in the French-speaking part of Switzerland in the 1960s. They were happily gigging away doing covers of their favorite British Invasion bands and West Coast psychedelic groups, hence the name. Talked into writing their own material, they released a single which was well received, and that led to the recording of this album, their only one. Released originally on Switzerland's Splendid! label, two of their label mates were After Shave and Country Lane. No great lost treasure of Krautrock or anything, this is nonetheless a mighty fun album, full of great early Procul Harum-like Hammond organ riffs and some really good guitar playing. The louder you play this the better it will sound!

1. Forget Your Dream
2. Erotic Blues
3. Drive My Car
4. Thick Fog
5. Gyli Gyli
6. Ceremony For A Dead
7. If Your Soul Is Uncultivated
8. Gates Of Hell
9. The Drug Just Told Me
10. The Green Eyed Girl
11. Ballad To Jimi

Roger Page - Keyboards
Diego Lecci - Drums
Mark Treuthardt - Guitars, Bass
Chris Meyer - Vocals

Alright see ya.
