Most people were introduced to the bizarre psychedelic sound of The Monocles (later The Higher Elevation) thanks to the inclusion of the bizarre 'The Spider & The fly' and 'The Diamond Mine' on the legendary Pebbles Vol. 3 (the 'acid-punk' volume). These youngsters fCool US'68 psychedelic concept album with all the right moves: solid songwriting, refreshing harmonies, studio effects, organ, fuzz guitar, electric piano, sunshine / baroque touches…Think Rainy Daze, Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Doors…

The Rainbow Press evolved from The Continental Divide, a college band from New York comprised of members from two previous British Invasion groups: The Group and The Specs. They were Bill Yergin on drums, Dave Troup on bass, Larry Milton on electric piano and 12-string guitar, Marc Ellis on guitar, Charlie Osborne on organ and Joe Groff on vocals. All the members sang vocal harmonies and the twin electric piano / organ action gave the band an unusual and cool sound.

In 1968, Audio Fidelity approached them and a contract was secured. The band changed their name to the more groovy sounding The Rainbow Press and sessions for their first album started at Radio City in New York. 'There's a war on' saw the light in 1968 on the Mr. G label (the 'hip' branch of Audio Fidelity) and it's hard to believe this perfectly recorded and sounding psychedelic beauty was recorded by college students!

First time ever legit reissue.

Remastered sound .

Insert with liner notes telling the band's story for the first time.

'Under the radar melodic psych LP which turns out to be surprisingly enjoyable, with well-written, often moody tunes, OK vocals in the teen crooner style, extensive use of acid fuzz leads and nice organ-led minor chord progressions.
-Patrick Lundborg (Acid Archives)


Tracklist:

Step Aboard - A Simple Way - Cyclic Epic (The Song Of The Barnegat Mosquito) - Better Way - The Girl That Cannot Love - There's A War On - Lightning Streak - I've Found Someone - Our Country's Still O.K. - No One Follows The Daytime
stom Cadillac hearse. Between 1965 and 1968, they released a bunch of singles for different labels: Chicory, Denco, Liberty…

This retrospective collection includes the best of their 45 sides plus some previously unreleased on vinyl tracks.

You'll find demented psychsploitation ('The spider and the fly', 'The Diamond Mine') crude garage-psych ('Psychedelic (That's Where It's At)', 'Odyssey'), sunshine-pop / jangly folk-rock ('Summer Skies', 'Here Comes Sunshine'), teen garage / frat-rock ('Boogie Man', 'You don't know'), pop-psych ('Crazy Bicycle') and more.

Insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos.

'Hailing from Greeley, CO, the Monocles served as an unwitting example of the strange effect LSD had on America's youth during the mid- to late 1960s. Early on, the Monocles started out as a fairly ordinary pop-rock outfit. Then in mid-1966 the Monocles began to change; they cut a tune called 'Psychedelic (That's Where It's At)' that led to some truly bent sessions later on, most notably the twisted psychodramas of 'The Spider and the Fly,' 'The Boogie Man,' and 'The Diamond Mine' (the theme song for Dave Diamond's Los Angeles radio show).' - Mark Deming
