Freeman Sound and Friends - Heavy Trip (1970)
"Unreleased recordings from obscure Ohio band with 1970 45 on the same label as Morly Grey. Much of this is actually modern recordings, nevertheless about half of it is enjoyable sinister psychrock with a late Doors vibe." (AcidArchives)
"World In Sound presents another group that represents the late '60s, early '70s heavy psychedelic era scene in northeast Ohio, USA (the same region that Dragonwyck is from). Having won the Starshine Productions' 'Battle of the Bands' in 1970, the five-member Freeman Sound was established as the most popular of several bands (including Morly Grey), that had records released on the Starshine label. This special collection of original songs and sounds is an exciting bit of rock history that documents some of the charm, wit and depth of talent that made Freeman Sound the special local phenomenon they were. This release includes twelve great, quality tracks, four on an extra 7" record. Bio and photos are on a poster. You'll get stoned on some mind-bending vocals backed by instrumentation that includes some very intense, heavy fuzz and wah pedal guitar sounds, solid drums and a screaming organ with flashes of famous British groups. This band broke up before they were able to make the most of their popularity. With this previously unreleased album, they may be taking up where they left off. For fans of intelligently-executed psychedelic hard rock and pop with a message."
