THE LINCOLN'S - COME ALONG AND DREAM



THE LINCOLN'S - "Come Along And Dream" / "Smile Baby Smile" (Tripp Records 45-1000) March 1969

According to 'Teenbeat Mayhem' The Lincoln's hailed from the North Bonneville - Stevenson area of Washington in USA. I've read elsewhere that they've been incorrectly attributed to Vancouver in Canada.

The name on this label is probably a typo because they're The Lincolns on other releases. Perhaps their most well known is the organ/sax punker "We Got Some" on Dot Records in 1966.

This record dates from early 1969 but the music sounds like it's come from at least a year earlier. "Come Along And Dream" is a fast paced fuzz and hammond organ-a-go-go rocker the ends in a barrage of psychedelic studio effects. It was compiled on 'Highs In The Mid Sixties #7'

The other side "Smile Baby Smile" is a jaunty beatsville mover sounding not unlike some of those beaty Monkees numbers. Love the twangin' guitar on this one. Currently uncompiled.
