Susan Jacks has a beautiful voice as a lead and background. The set is very well mixed and there is a very strong essence of Hippie influenced instruments, including congas, inventive percussion of all kinds, sitar, some special vocal effects and guitar licks that are so prevalent of that period. The lyrics are of the Vietnam and drug period. As a side note, Kurt Cobain was a huge fan of "The Poppy Family", which is a big endorsement.
Highlights you'll remember are, "Which Way You Goin', Billy" (two versions), the wonderfully strong, "That's Where I Went Wrong" (both in the Top Ten of USA Contemporary hits), the anthemic "I Was Wondering" with a fantastic background mix of horns, "Where Evil Grows", "Good Friends" and many more with a total of twenty-one (21) songs.
The sound is very much the West Coast USA sound, so its interesting to know that the "Poppy Family" is all from Vancouver, Canada. Check out "The Poppy Family" and your own musical history.
"You are my whole, babe
My heart and my soul, babe" - "Which Way You Goin' Billy"
