«Velvet Night» - biography, albums, songs, video clips

This is a New York psychedelic folk/rock group called VELVET NIGHT. Besides strangely arranged cover versions of two Tim Hardin and a Donovan songs, plus a Cream medley there are songs written by Curtiss and Kanyon plus one credited to the band’s organ player Vinnie Nisi. The record has a rather weird US underground psychedelic sound. Donovan’s “Season Of The Witch” certainly comes less menacing than Vanilla Fudge’s version but still much heavier than the original. “The Cream Medley” is rather strange. And Tim Hardin’s “If I Were A Carpenter” sounds spherically esoteric. When Lynn Boccumini sings lead vocals, the band even sounds a bit like Jefferson Airplane
