The Freeborne - Peak Impressions. 1968 USA

The Freeborne represents some of the finest songwriting of the 60s psychedelic movement. There's echoes of the Doors, but in general, The Freeborne were one of the more innovative of the groups of the day - all operating with the context of relatively short songs (final track on each side sees the band stretching out a bit). Fine guitar, organ, vocals - everything you want in a psych album, but rarely get. Highly recommended.

Personal collection
CD: 2014 Arf! Arf!

The definitive reissue, with a booklet filled with historical liners, mono bonus cuts, as well as 3 reunion tracks. You will often times see this album listed as from 1967. However the CD corrects the record so to speak. There are multiple references and proof of a 1968 release. For example: "Notes on the master tape box imply that the mixing and editing of the album occurred on March 27, 1968". Another reference is a half-page advertisement in the July 1968 "New England Scene" magazine that blares out that Peak Impressions is "Just Released !!"
