The Buckinghams made these two albums in 1967, and boy, do they ever sound it. Despite the presence of four ultra-commercial pop hits in their best horn-driven "Kind of a Drag" style, the influence of psychedelia in general and the Beatles in particular, including a jazzy cover of "I'll Be Back," is by far the dominant motif.
The albums' most memorable moment comes when the two styles collide. In "Susan," their last big hit, an otherwise straightforward melody and arrangement are suddenly and inexplicably interrupted by an atonal sonic collage not a million miles away from the finale of the Beatles' "A Day in the Life."
