The Salt –Lucifer

The Salt –Lucifer/A Whole Lot of Rainbows –Cotillion 44012 (1968 US)

Here’s a marvellous Joey Levine oddity. Giving The Dark One the levity he sometimes deserves, Lucifer is a wondrous mix of Heavy Bubblegum/Psych, OTT orchestrations and goes off in all directions while remaining a united focused effort. At times I wonder if this was not a Third Rail outtake as it takes in near Pet Sounds interludes amid the Captain Groovy Grooves. It must have been fun creating this one in the studio as it sure is fun listening to it 47 years later! Immortal stuff…
