The sole album by this US psychedelic folk rock unit was released in 1968 on Mainstream, the label ran by famous jazz producer Bob Shad. After launching a young Janis Joplin with the Big Brother And The Holding Company, he tried to repeat his commercial triumph with The Growing Concern. However, the band was a different proposition altogether with its emphasis on beautiful vocal harmonies and fantastic guitar and organ work. Consequently, Shad only allowed the group into the studio on a single occasion, dropping them from the label after their eponymous debut. The support of vocalists Bonnie MacDonald and Mary Garstki are an intrinsic part of the band's distinctive sound, and the songs contributed by organist Dan Passaglia, bassist John Pedley and guitarist Ralph Toms are more than equal to the offerings from more illustrious contemporaries such as Mike Hugg ('Mister You're A Better Man Than I') or Stephen Stills ('Sit Down I Think I Love You'). A true acid folk gem with distinctive progressive blues hooks that needs to be urgently rediscovered.

Also available: THE GROWING CONCERN (CD).
