The Blue Things – The Blue Things - RCA – LSP-3603 STEREO
The Blue Things were formed in the sedate college town of Hays, Kansas in 1964 as The Blue Boys changing name in 1965.
Initially they were a folk rock group but were influenced by the Merseybeat sound of the first wave of the British invasion. In this style they released a string of pounding, driving singles in 1965. In 1966 and the aftermath of the Beatles` Revolver they changed their sound radically to full blown psychedelia complete with a middle eastern sounding organ and guitars tuned like sitars. Their psychedelic live shows became legendary locally and often contained a fair smattering of Beatles` covers. This their sole album was released at the zenith of their career.

A NICE RECORD RECOMMENDED
Some incredible songs on this 1967 album from composer Reid King who married the Brazilian sound with
popular music of that era to produce an album that should have really taken off then, but due to the strange
setup of Canterbury Records who were in business to lose money for a Mattel tax shelter, the album was allowed
to die on the vine by Canterbury when it started to take off with airplay and sales. Reid King went on to become
one of the foremost composers of contemporary music for the gut-string guitar.
FINALLY ONE LAST WORD RE HAIRLINES, IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ANY NON SEALED RECORD WITHOUT THEM, MANY HAD THEM FROM NEW. MOSTLY THEY ARE A RESULT OF STORAGE AND USE AND USUALLY HAVE LITTLE IMPACT ON THE SOUND QUALITY. THE SAME GOES FOR BACKGROUND NOISE, UNFORTUNATELY ALL RECORDS WILL HAVE SOME AND THIS VARIES AND REFLECTS THE PRESSING QUALITY.
Most records have production marks where someone touched or moved the vinyl while it was still semi-soft. These marks look like smudges, but are not scratches or "paper scuffs" and do not usually sound. Untouched vinyl from newly-opened records have these marks.
