This isn’t an official release from what I can gather. In fact, I have no actual information on the source of this compilation. So, if you know where it’s from, or you compiled it, drop me a line.
That said, Curt Boettcher is really a name that should be mentioned as often, and with the same reverence, as Brian Wilson. Don’t know where to begin with this guy? Here, listen to this. It’s from the 1968 album BEGIN by The Millennium, Boettcher’s studio project. He also worked with Gary Usher constantly, like on THE NOTORIOUS BYRD BROTHERS (an album I am currently obsessed with), and Sagittarius. He also produced that amazing first Emitt Rhodes album. Eventually it occurred to me that this guy’s name is on almost every American album I love from 1965-72.
This compiles, apparently, every single (or at least a LOT of them, “all” might be an impossible task) on which Boettcher had a production credit, over four discs. Including his pre-Millennium bands The Ballroom and The GoldeBriars. This is must-get to me, I don’t know about you.
