Gale Garnett & The Gentle Reign

SHARE

Best known for her 1963 hit We’ll Sing In The Sunshine and a film and TV career including movies such as My Big Fat Greek Wedding , Gale Garnett’s time fronting The Gentle Reign remains the most eccentric entry in her résumé.

In 1968 Garnett left her folk roots behind, embarking on a whole new direction and recruiting The Gentle Reign to back her timely foray into the world of psych-rock.

Two offbeat and largely forgotten late 60s albums for CBS resulted, which survive as bona fide collectors’ items from the heyday of the Haight Ashbury era.

Sporting a vocal style somewhere between Bobbie Gentry and Grace Slick, Garnett and friends turned out an eclectic mix of styles on both albums that effortlessly moved between trippy psych, folk rock, pop and most points in-between.
