The Association

Birthday (1968) is perhaps The Association's best produced & most coherent - if not strongest - LP. The cover art & Bones Howe's production reached out for a potential potheads-with-earphones audience, to small avail. The album charted two excellent AM hits, "Everything That Touches You" & "Time For Livin." As with another fine vocal group, Free Design, there's often complex or strange goings-on beneath the most lightweight surfaces. A private pleasure for me when it was released. It's like doing doob at Disneyland. Like Always (Realaudio)
