Bob Smith - The Visit (1970)

A double album that was released in 1971, this didn't recieve adequate distribution for a considerable period, so it wasn't really available until late '72.This is a classic psych album in every sense: trippy effects, phased/wah'd guitars, searing leads, wasted vocals/subject matter and the obligatory 'experiment' pieces, tho' these are not as prominent as you'd figure knowing that this is a double lp. Despite the title, this is not a solo album by any means, as Mr. Smith had a large backup band that featured members of the Mothers of Invention.I got this out today and have been enjoying it all morning- it's not gimmicky or wacked-out or anything, just good, solid psych that still holds up well today. Personal favorite is 'Don't Tell Lady', a loud psycher about hiding the ingestions of certain substances from a spouse: "If you go out tonight/And I can't stand up tonight/I said don't tell lady/Tonight"... Ha! This is (of course) sung over a snaky flanged out stoner guitar lead, heh-heh. A reasonable buy if you have all of the 'mainstream' psych albums and are still hungry. Great sounding CD reissue of a rare and highly prized double album, from the west coast. Chock full of psychedelic goodness fuzz, effects, harpsichord and lost drifting vocals. A superb CD.
Another significant collectable from the California rock scene that will interest readers. Not really a solo album at all, as Smith is backed by eight very capable musicians. Much of the music is instrumental, achieving a mystical and 'psychedelic' atmosphere, although there are a few more mainstream tracks and some nice bluesy guitar work in places. Interesting and a must for fans of psychedelia. The original pressing (especially with the amazing psychedelic poster) has skyrocketed in value in recent years; as such, the recent reissue is most welcome. It includes a bonus disc of material recorded by Stop, Bob's later band from the early seventies.
Prior to the Kent album, Bob was with Silverskin, and before that, Lid (not to be confused with The Lyd), who recorded an album in 1968 which remains unissued.
Don Preston was a member of Frank Zappa's Mothers Of Invention and Daryl Dragon was with The Dragons. Daryl worked on various projects with his brothers Doug and Dennis (Farm, A Sea For Yourself, et. al.) before finding fame and fortune as the 'Captain' in Captain and Tenille. Bob Smith continues performing locally in Florida and has finished a new recording, The Visit - Destiny 2000 From Bob Smith which he will make available on his own Southern Rose label.

Um, would suggest screeing 'anonymous' comments--what a bitch! Anyhow, this is a WICKED album. I listen to LOTS of musics, of ALL genres, and only recently came across this album. I tried to dwnld it months ago, and it was a corrupted file. Anyhoo, I finally got it through you 7-FLOOR. OMG!!!! This is one of those albums that makes me glad for having the internet. I don't know if I would have come across this any other way. It is getting HEAVY play in only one day!!!

Hi 7-FLOOR I thought you might like some more music that I found. Found on 3 different blogs hope you like it.
German pioneer of the echo-guitar, renowned for his classics "Samtvogel" and "Überfällig", he also worked with Klaus Schulze (in concert). Günter also ventured in to more explorative Krautrock and developed a style comparable to the early work of Achim Reichel. The GAM trio (Günter Schickert, Axel Struck, and Michael Leske) featured two guitars and drums, and is really freaked-out improvisations recalling the psychedelic space treks of Ash Ra Tempel or Pink Floyd.

Later this year I will be selling 3 or 4 unopened copies of the double LP of Bob Smith and The Visit, on the Kent Record Label. These records have NEVER BEEN OPENED.

In addition I will be selling the original acetate recording that we made before the album was done.
This acetate was recorded at Columbia Records in Hollywood in the early 70's. It was this acetate recording that we shopped around and got the record deal with Kent and Maury Alexander as producer.

Keep an eye out on eBay for these items or email me directly if you are interested in purchasing them directly from me.

The writer of 7-floor.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: The keyboard is mightier than the pen, and the pen is mightier than the sword, but the atom bomb kicks ass... I will be back.
