Oblivians - Play 9 Songs With Mr. Quintron
This product is currently sold out.
The third and final Oblivians record was promoted as their gospel album largely due to the subject matter (God/facing one's spiritual fate) and covers of traditional songs. A departure from raw, in the red garage soul music, Play 9 Songs explores the power of black spirituals (in a raw in the red garage style). "Feel Alright" opens the record with the steady boogie of Mr. Quintron, organ man extraordinaire, and Greg Oblivian's invocation to do the Lord's bidding. Imbued with howling soul searching, this is a sinner's record not a saint's. Play 9 Songs is by far the cleanest recording by the Oblivians with much of the buzz and fuzz replaced by more subdued guitar parts.
