Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – 2/1/12

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Bond Street” by Enoch Light and the Light Brigade

Shagadelic indeed! Literally hundreds of records were released during the 1960s carrying the Enoch Light name. Light was born in Ohio and was a vice president of easy listening record label, Grand Award, before founding Command Records in 1959. Light’s stock in trade was state-of-the-art mood music records that took full advantage of the capabilities of stereo hi-fi systems of the day by featuring ping-pong stereo effects. The packaging on his records, like the classic “Persuasive Percussion” album, featured minimalist modern art on the covers designed to stand out in record bins with heavy cardboard gatefold sleeves. This song comes from Light’s 1969 album “Spaced Out” with some of the coolest period graphics I’ve ever seen on any record cover.
