The Seeds - Future download album

Future is the third studio album by Los Angeles rock band the Seeds. The album is a notable shift in musical direction for the band as they moved away from garage rock, and began experimenting more with psychedelic rock. Upon its release in 1967, the album reached the Top 100 on the Billboard 200, but their single, "A Thousand Shadows", was less successful than The Seeds' previous hits.

Label: GNP Crescendo ‎– GNP 2038. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Stereo, Gatefold. Drums – Rick Andridge. Engineer – Doc Siegel.

I avoided The Seeds' third album "Future" like the plague due to the Flower Power motif, but alas, out of boredom, I purchased this album, and I find it fantastic. For one, I actually prefer the organ/electric piano of The Seeds, then the Doors, which has a similar line-up. Jim Morrison is a college professor compared to Sky's lyrics, yet, even in the Roger Corman sense of an aesthetic, Sky may be the real 'deal. The album as a whole has the classic Seeds sound, but there are also many exotic touches that fit into the groove that's Sky Saxon.

Though the Seeds' third album, 1967's Future, was pegged by critics as the band's attempt to ride the wave of orchestral magic the Beatles defined with Sgt. Pepper's, the recording was actually complete before the release of the Beatles' far more popular breakthrough album, making it impossible for the influence to touch the uncannily similarly minded flower power tones of Future.

Future (The Seeds album). The Seeds moved into 1967 as an established band with national hits, including "Pushin' Too Hard", and two albums solidifying their individual sound. With their new manager, Tim Hudoson, and a knack for outlandish live performances, the band's public profile was at an all time high Recording sessions began in Gold Star Studios as early as November 3, 1966, but the majority of studio work was completed in 1967.

The ensuing album, Future, seemed at once both calculated and confused. For some, it represents the Seeds’ grand psychedelic statement, a mind-blowing articulation of the flower power movement of which they had been proclaimed torchbearers. To others, Future is Sky Saxon’s folly: an over-egged, acid-damaged pudding that submerged the true power of the band with meaningless grandeur. The truth lies somewhere between.
