Man, this is such a cool record. I downloaded it somewhere else because the featured "Groovies" are in fact super vocal group "The Free Design". I've only just discovered their amazing sound. In fact, two tracks on this Mottola recording (Kites are Fun + I Found Love) are their own compositions.
You must check out their albums. Some of the most amazing and criminally ignored music from the 60's and 70's.
PS Do you remember the classic children's picture book series "Eloise"? Well, the illustrator of those books was Hillary Knight and she is the artist responsible for the fab cover of this record.

Lovely share!
Always love to find stuff that's been sampled by "the avalanches". "With a Little Help" is used in the "since I left you" track. Anyhow, great, album, great blog.
And two free design covers on one album, pretty cool!

You seem to be missing:

Track 11 - Love in Every Room



Is there any way you can re-up or post just this one track? It'd be really appreciated!

Thanks again!

Saddly, "wonderful".rar doesn't include track 11 and I'm feeling embarrased for point that 'cause your work is amazing)
