Album of the Day
An outgrowth of beat group The In Crowd, Tomorrow was one of the bands that helped define British psychedelia in the 1960s. The group's sole, self-titled album for Parlophone is among the best of the era, well-produced (with Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick helping work the boards) and bursting with adventurous arrangements and highly melodic material. Standouts among the ten originals include “Real Life Permanent Dream,” “Revolution” and the oft-anthologized “My White Bicycle.” Guitarist Steve Howe would go on to Yes (and drummer John “Twink” Alder to The Pretty Things), and the superb instrumental work here makes his future fame seem inevitable. Recorded many months before its February 1968 release, TOMORROW offers a snapshot of the Summer of Love that remains exciting today.
