Trip Through The Garden: The Rose Garden Collection
 
Trip Through The Garden: The Rose Garden Collection Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $15.00
Artist: The Rose Garden
 
 
Quantity:
 

RELEASED ON 6/15 - ACCEPTING ORDERS NOW!!  In December 1967, Los Angeles folk-rock quintet The Rose Garden’s debut single “Next Plane To London” rose to #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 national singles chart.  A month later the single topped the Canadian RPM chart. Considering the stiff competition at that point, along with the odds stacked against them as an unknown new band, The Rose Garden members felt justifiably proud of their accomplishment.  Expanded for the very first time, The Rose Garden’s sole album from 1968 finally gets the deep-dive examination it deserves with “A Trip Through The Garden: The Rose Garden Collection”.  Beyond the twelve tracks of jangly (as in Byrdsy-at-times 6 and 12 string guitars) folk rock released in 1967 (the original ten-track album and two songs from a post-album single release), this newly restored and remastered CD adds 14 previously unissued tracks. They include five live tracks recorded in August of 1967 at Chaminade High School in Canoga Park plus studio outtakes, acetate tracks, and a special rehearsal.  Being released at the same time is the Gene Clark Holy Grail, “Gene Clark Sings For You” which serves as a companion to “A Trip Through The Garden…”  Clark was involved with The Rose Garden after leaving The Byrds and furnished them with an acetate of songs to choose from for their self-titled album. They chose “Long Time” and “Till Today” which appear in demo form on Gene Clark Sings For You”, and as an acetate version and rehearsal on this disc.  The liner notes feature new interviews with the band by John Einarson, author of Mr. Tambourine Man: The Life And Legacy Of The Byrds’ Gene Clark” along with previously unseen photos.  EXCELLENT!!
