H.P. Lovecraft II (1968)

hp lovecraft II

Featuring two strong singers (who often sang dual leads), hauntingly hazy arrangements, and imaginative songwriting that drew from pop and folk influences, H. P. Lovecraft was one of the better psychedelic groups of the late ’60s.

Their sound incorporated the rollerball instrumentalism and massed harmonies of the Jefferson Airplane (sans Grace on one hand, but in tune on the other), but with the added plus of keyboards. Brilliant keyboards. And top-notch vocals as well–one of their several lead vocalists had opera training, and while all were extremely competent their live sound was just raw enough to make them fun.
