Lacewing, USA

Lacewing - s/t. 1970 Mainstream.

Lacewing is one of the rarest and most collectible albums on Mainstream. Based in Kent, Ohio, this album was released near the time of the Kent State shootings, which is reflected in the atmosphere of the compositions. Like many US albums from 1970, the material is psych influenced, but still unsure of where it wanted to go next. There's roots rock, folk, progressive and the usual kitchen sink mentality. The guitar work is exemplary and the female vocals are better than average for the era. Worth a few listens, and would make a good CD, especially given the collectibility of this rarity.

Priority: None
