The Lost Souls – S/T (Coming Soon)


“The Lost Souls never released any records, yet the recorded evidence that survives indicates that they were one of the finest unknown American groups of the mid-’60s, able to write both catchy British Invasion-type rockers and, in their latter days, experimental psychedelic pieces with unusual tempo changes and song structures.”
—Richie Unterberger

It took a lot of talent in middle America in 1967/68 to wear huge sunglasses, Austin Power-esque frilly shirts, polka dot bell-bottoms, scarves, Beatle boots, stripes and yet to thrive. “Sometimes you have to get lost to get found,” they explained. Although the Lost Souls were very popular in their hometown of Cleveland, they broke up in 1968, before they could hit it big. This disc brings together all known recordings by these local psychedelic legends, including as a bonus, post-break-up tracks featuring Denny Carlton with the Choir, Moses, and other outfits. Massive  color booklet has the full story of the band and info on the recordings by Carlton, and includes a multitude of unseen photos from his personal archive.
