Save For A Rainy Day - Acid Pop
« on: April 19, 2017, 01:02:26 PM »
The Save For A Rainy Day album is often referred to as Acid Pop or Psychedelic Pop which I definitely agree with. There are some very trippy moments on this record. Was Dean going for a (then current) Psychedelic sound? Or maybe experimenting with the drugs that led his contemporaries (Brian Wilson & The Beatles for example) to move into Psychedelic music?

I can't speak for Dean, but in his case I seriously doubt there was any major drug experimentation.

  It's a great (slightly) trippy surf rock LP. True cult classic.

Dean did not/has not ever taken LSD, and has also stated he never partook.

What about smoking weed? Listening to Filet Of Soul sure makes it seem like they may have hahaha. I'm not surprised Dean hasn't done acid. SFRD and COS, to me, prove that J&D could have made it during the psychedelic era.

Save For A Rainy Day usually gets labeled "Sunshine Pop" which is the general genre Dean thinks the act would've transitioned into if the accident hadn't happened.  He also refers to the second mix of Yellow Balloon as "Turtles-esque," which is pretty consistent with the album's style.  I don't think it's really going for a drugs or psychedelic sound.

That's what I meant by he never partook.  Dean does not speak down about drug use, but maintains he did not smoke pot … didn't want to.
