McDonald & Sherby :: Catharsis (1969)


"McDonald & Sherby's sole contribution to the canon of 20th century music was Catharsis, an album which originally appeared on the appropriately-named Omniscient label (Omniscient Records 1426S) Some have speculated that given the band's prog/psych leanings, Catharsis was probably recorded in the '70s, although the accepted wisdom is that the album was made at Minneapolis's Sound 80 Studios on 1969. The album consists of six long tracks with a decidedly heavy guitar-based vibe, all well- recorded and delivered with considerable aplomb."

This shit is just straight up groovy man! Front to back...

I was in this band, and was shocked to find it here! It was indeed recorded at Sound 80 in Minneapolis, but the year is 1974 - not 1969. (In 1969 I was only in the 9th grade, and living in Japan.)
