Batteaux - Batteaux

  • Batteaux

    Batteaux LP (1973)

    Columbia

Obscure AM Gold / proto yacht rock gem by brothers David & Robin Batteau (as seen on the album cover swimming naked with dolphins?).  Everything about this album would later be refined,perfected, and commercialized in the late 70s packaged as ultra-smooth AOR (Album Oriented Rock). Their debut is folky, groovy, melodic, and moody especially on cuts "High Tide", "Mirror", and "Living's Worth Loving".
