Group Therapy - People Get Ready (1968, US, soulypsychrock, RCA Victor vinyl rip, single flac + cue, DR11, artwork)

*** Reviewed by great fellow Adamus67 ***

There were several sixties bands named Group Therapy, but this was likely the Northeastern variant featuring vocalist Ray Kennedy (who worked with the Beach Boys and Mike Bloomfield in the 1970s).Both albums (recorded in 1967-69) of the U.S. formation almost directly referring to the creativity and style Vanilla Fudge - a lot of modifications to the luscious sound of Hammond organs and rich vocal harmonies in the foreground....RCA's answer to Vanilla Fudge... They even cover "People Get Ready" just like the Fudge...
There music was of the heavy Vanilla Fudge variety, and not apparently memorable. Playing mostly originals, but also a few standards, opening up with Hendrix "Foxy Lady" among others. A nice guitar driven platter from the 60's
Thank you so much Adam for that effort

One of several ’60s bands of that name, this Group Therapy recorded two albums at the end of the decade, 1968′s People Get Ready for… and the following year’s 37 Minutes of… (despite actually only being 34 minutes long).

Their schtick was Vanilla Fudge-alike heavy psych workouts, including their mentors’ propensity for rocked-up covers, notably their take on Ike & Tina Turner/Phil Spector’s “River Deep, Mountain High”, although most of the album’s material is in a similar vein.

To be brutally honest, it hasn’t really dated that well, given that it’s essentially a copy of The Fudge, who in turn couldn’t really be said to sound particularly contemporary. Best track? Probably the driving hard rock/psych of “Willie” (Planet Mellotron)
