Local Philly legends the American Dream was a late '60s band (featuring musician/actor Nick Jameson, later of Foghat!) who were regulars at clubs like the Electric Circus and offered a cool mix of psych, hard-rock and proto-power pop. They were signed to Ampex/Bearsville Records, releasing their only album in 1970, produced by Todd Rundgren (his first production work).
Now, for the first time on vinyl and straight from the original masters, we present their previously unreleased studio demos from 1969 - also produced by Todd Rundgren - that landed the band their deal with Ampex. Music is great psych-rock with superb vocal harmonies and hard guitars. Also included are two rare tracks from their unfinished 1970 second LP plus the killer garage-jangle classic 'Big Brother,' originally recorded by pre-American Dream band The Finestuff in 1967, as a bonus.
Comes in hard cardboard sleeve with insert with liner notes and photos/memorabilia and download card. RIYL: The Nazz, Who, Badfinger, Moby Grape, Byrds, Big Star, Beatles, CSNY...

Also available: 1969 RUNDGREN DEMOS (CD).
