CORPUS "Creation A Child" - 1972

I’ve never come across an original US copy of this one. Privately pressed on Acorn in 1972 (Acorn 1001), this Psych Rock album is one of those crown jewels you have to spend a great amount of money to own. The record has recently been reissued by Akarma on both LP and CD and a bootleg from 1986 is also available. I bought the bootleg knowing I’d never have the opportunity to buy the original red-label Acorn press (later Acorn pressings have a green/pink label).

Musically, this Corpus-Christi, TX-based band offers a great dose of bar-rockers, some inspired idle ballads (Joy is really beautiful) and a couple of forgettable cuts.
The songs boast a soft and smooth guitar work, great vocals and a laid-back rhythm section.
Creation A Child is not an absolute must-have LP but it will please Psych Rock lovers.

“Marriage” is one my favorite tracks, along with the majestic “Joy”.

ENJOY!
