This is for lovers....
Friends always seem shocked to find out that Free The Bees is a contemporary album when they have never heard it before, ... it does sound like they have gone to a lot of trouble to get it to sound like a late 60's album (especially on Chicken Payback).
I bet Lee Maver's would be impressed if he heard it. Whilst recording the debut La's album on vintage 60's analogue valve equipment, his search for 60's authenticity escalated to frightening obsessive levels when he tried to reject the album, not the first recording of it either, on the grounds that it didn't sound '60's enough because the dust on the valvues was not real '60's dust!
