From the dusty, vinyl-scratched archives comes this folk rock groove that single-handedly epitomizes the anti-establishment movement of the late 1960s.

I’ll be honest; I had never heard of Rejoice. Ever. It was only after we received the golden pickins from our neighbor’s LP collection that I came across this album in one of the boxes. The first track – “Sausalito Sunrise” – is almost unplayable due to a dip in the record. But the rest of the disk, in all its clicky-poppy awesomeness, simply oozes the musical equivalent to a tirade against The Establishment, punctuated by chants of “I hate The Man.” What a slow groovy trip.

Listen for references to transistor radios, secretaries, discos, and typewriters.
