This album and Cross Country are like journeys into another world. These albums are comparable to Beatles and Beach Boys records of the same era. I'm sure you've heard The Lion Sleeps Tonight. If ever a lost musical classic exists. While I am sure the title of the album is a substitution for the real name given how Warners records apparently screwed over the group, this is truly innovative. It has rich harmonies and very interesting lyrics. Lead singer Jay Siegel was never better and the group is extremely tight.
The Tokens are best known for their massive 1961 hit (US/UK) recording of The Lion Sleeps Tonight. In the late 60s, influenced by the Beatles and the Boys (Smiley Smile), Mitch Margo and The Tokens recorded a wildly psychedelic selection of songs written during a pretty blue period in Mitch’s life. Admittedly, some songs haven’t stood the test of time as well as the Boys’ songs. Even I have trouble playing the overtly druggy Commercial in the presence of others. I have seen two other versions that portray Intercourse as either a lo-fi/punk record or a mid-eighties Kinks record. It is amazing to be alive!
