Artist: LAZY SMOKE
Title: Corridor Of Faces
Format: LP
Label: Jackpot
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"In a genre built on obscured and unsung genius, Corridor Of Faces transcends and stands out as a true psyche masterpiece. Rising above any number of recently unearthed late-60s anglo-pop platters, the sole offering from small town Massachusetts phenomenon Lazy Smoke is a cohesive, solid, classic album in every sense. Ten songs that weave into one-another, painting some beautifully drifty sonic picture as they go. The first remarkable trait of Lazy Smokes sound is the lead vocals uncanny similarity to John Lennon. If that likeness was the whole story, we would have a Beatles sound-alike on our hands, and that would be that. Upon digging just a little deeper below the surface, we instead find a darker tone and a patient, eerie and almost shut-in feeling resonating through the songs. While bands like The Beatles and The Left Banke were singing about love, lament and hallucinated travel experiences, the songs on Corridor Of Faces get sincerely dark right away. Even the seemingly-light teenage love-themed Sarah Saturday shares an undercurrent of on-the-edge uncertainty and dread. Its this undercurrent that calls to mind comparisons to Forever Changes-era Love and the more damaged end of the pop spectrum. Originally privately pressed in MA in an edition of only 500 copies in 1968. Features original cover art, printed inner sleeve with rare photos and band history." -Jackpot.

"Lazy Smoke - Corridor Of Faces is held in high regards as one of the rarest psych albums ever made. The sole offering recorded in Massachusettes in 1968, Lazy Smoke is a cohesive, solid, classic album in every sense. The first remarkable trait of Lazy Smokes sound is the lead vocals similarity to John Lennon. Upon digging just a little deeper below the surface, we instead find a darker tone and a patient, eerie feeling resonating through the songs. While bands like The Beatles and Love were singing about love, lament and hallucinated travel experiences, the songs on Corridor of Faces get sincerely dark right away. Even the seemingly-light teenage love-themed “Sarah Saturday” shares an undercurrent of on-the-edge uncertainty. Its this undercurrent that calls to mind comparisons to Forever Changes era Love. Originally privately pressed in MA in an edition of only 500 copies in 1968. Now repressed again in 2016 in an edition of 500 transparent light green vinyl." - Jackpot.
