The year was 1984, and Bobb Trimble had two then-unrecognized masterpieces to his credit and a lot of confusion and indifference from his fellow travelers in the Worcester, MA “Wormtown” scene. Never one to worry much about appearances, Bobb accepted an invitation to join a group of teenage boys who called themselves The Crippled Dog Band, named after Boopsie, a three-legged canine local. Bobb donned the title of Chief Crippled Dog and led the Band on enthusiastically received gigs throughout the region. Unbeknownst to almost anyone, they completed a raucous album full of addictive hooks, feedback, teen chatter and video game noises. But soon the Band splintered and Bobb decided to forget about the whole thing, disposing of the entire 500-count LP pressing in an office park dumpster. All of which would be nothing more than a typically weird footnote to the Bobb Trimble legend, except for the fact that The Crippled Dog Band is very different from, but every bit as remarkable and brilliant as Iron Curtain Innocence and Harvest Of Dreams. Having proved himself, if only to himself, this is where Bobb stops chasing glass menagerie fantasies of perfection, tempers the dread of his first two records, and reconnects with his DIY roots. This unique collaboration between the greatest psychedelic musician of the 80s and his scrappy acolytes yields pure rock and roll and the result is raw, crazy, and infectiously exciting. Remasted under Bobb's direct supervision.

about

Bobb Trimble Massachusetts

"[Harvest of Dreams is] rated by most as the best psych LP of the 1980s. One of those obscurities (like Fraction) that blows even non-psych fans away... the total impact is like walking around in one of Bobb's dreams. Melancholic, moving but also hopeful - an essential experience." - Patrick Lundborg, 'The Acid Archives: A Guide to Underground Sounds 1965-1982' ... more
