David Axelrod- Song Of Innocence

 David Axelrod’s 1968 tribute to Walt Whitman is a lush and gorgeous song suite. The music presented here goes beyond genres in the same sense that a great composer like Morricone does. Later critics have credited this record with developing the production and composition style of modern dance music. However being released well before modern production techniques the baroque layers of psych, rock, funk, and pop parts are played and captured quite naturally and the result is an incredible wash of sound as intricate and splendid as anything you’ll find on wax.
