REISSUES
Diggin' in the Crates for Untold Treasures
 
By Andrew Hultkrans
 
#6
 
After a nearly fatal car crash on Los Angeles' Dead Man's Curve (earlier immortalized by a Jan & Dean hit), Jan Berry composed and arranged a batch of songs that incorporated the psychedelic strains of the day. Recorded by the legendary Wrecking Crew and session vocalists such as Glen Campbell, Berry's pocket Smile sadly never saw release. But on tracks like "Fan Tan" — with its bizarre, deceptive key changes — Berry's unique, if damaged, talents emerge.

The Second Disc
The Year in Reissues, Part III: The Gold Bonus Disc Awards (2010)

Blog by Mike Duquette

Carnival of Sound — Gold Bonus Disc Award Winner (Best Lost Album Reissue)

"Another project that took a considerable amount of vault-hunting was Rhino Handmade’s beautiful set honoring Jan and Dean’s lost album (actually, almost entirely the work of Jan Berry), Carnival of Sound.  And like most carnivals, it’s fun, wild and wacky! Its infectious and idiosyncratic music could only have come from Berry’s fertile imagination. Released both in a standard CD format and an LP-sized box containing the album on both vinyl and CD, Carnival of Sound’s release allowed listeners to finally experience this wonderful California psych-pop creation in a form as close as possible to Berry’s original intention, and this long-awaited release takes The Gold Bonus Disc. "
