Blaze - Columbia - 1967
Compared to other rock/pop albums that were released that year ( Sgt Pepper / Axis Bold as Love / Disraeli Gears etc. ), it's no surprise that this album did not 'cause much attension at it's time. Most of the album could just as well have been recorded in 1964-65, and clearly the heyday of the band was coming to an end.
But apart from this, it's actually a fine 1960's pop album; several fine songs, fine production etc.
The band members were even beginning to write fine songs themselves. On this album "Busy Line" and the bonus-track "Nobody Needs to Know" are good examples of this. Other highlights are Donovan's "Museum" and "Don't Go Out into the Rain". So this is probably their most consistent and mature album.
Great with 12 bonus-tracks. All singles A's and B's from 1968-69. The rare B-side "London Look" was a nice surprise for me.
