This album has a few interesting moments but is not fantastic. The male lead singer is allowed too many vocals and in comparison to the female singer, sounds too corny. The covers are hit or miss. This album has almost a pure "Mammas & Papas" vibe with a tiny bit of "Jefferson Airplane" added to the sound but with not enough female vocals. This is yet another example of how rare does not necessarily mean awesome. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.
This self-titled album by The Growing Concern curiously first saw the light of day in 1969 on Bob Shad's Mainstream label (Mainstream S/6108), an imprint more familiar to jazz and blues fans than devotees of psych/pop. Perhaps Shad thought he was going to repeat his commercial triumph with The Growing Concern.
