Yet another Rich Haupt/Rockadelic discovery, "Gold" is one of those projects that takes a little effort to get into. Apparently recorded and shelved in 1969, the set has a distinctive late 1960s West Coast feel to it. It's certainly not the most ground breaking LP you'll ever buy, but is kind of interesting for the decent male/female singers and it's mix of musical styles. Produced by Leo de Gar Kukla at San Francisco's Golden Gate Studios, musically the set bounces between rather convention hard rock (the crazed opener "No Parking" and "Summer Dresses"), Latin-rock influences (the instrumental "Conquistadore") with an occasional soul touch thrown in (""). Wish this copy had included the original insert so we could have read about the band's background.
