Joe Rosanova & The Vineyard “In Dedication To The One’s We Love” 1968 US Private Psych Rock


Joe Rosanova  &  The Vineyard   “In Dedication To The One’s We Love” 1968 US ultra rare  Private Psych Rock
full rare album only on dailymotion

Very obscure psych rock from Tennessee, great organ sound, very strong throughout with one stand out track, “Dreams of You”, a true psychedelic classic!….~


Band from Tennessee / Mostly ballads but also a long piece “Dreams of You, ” one of the most beautiful psychedelic songs of all time….groove collector..~ 


To be honest, this one caught my attention at a yard sale solely to the fact I recalled seeing a picture of the low-tech cover in one of Hans Pokora’s Record Collector’s Dreams books. 
As an aside, I often play a little game where before listening to an album I rate it on a scale of zero to five stars. This one started out with two stars, but ended up with three. That said, there’s precious little biographical information to be found on this outfit. At least a couple of references indicate these guys were from Nashville (probably based on the fact it was distributed by a Nashville-based label), but that’s doubtful given their sound (and the Italian surnames). At least that point in time they recorded this album, the line up consisted of namesake drummer Joe Rosovano, singer/guitarist Bart Fiori, bassist Mark Torpey and keyboardist Don Vitalle (the last three presumably constituting ‘The Vintage’). 
Given that it was distributed by Starday Records (known as a pay and press label), their sole release, 1968’s “In Dedication of Those We Love” appears to have been a vanity project. Co-produced by Bob Marsano, Ron Lenhoff and Michael Stone, the album featured eleven original tracks. Largely penned by Fiori and Rosanova, the results were certainly diverse. The opener left you with the impression this was going to be a Christian rock outing. Thankfully that proved a red herring with most of the album bouncing between lounge act moves ('Vicki’ and 'Somehow, Someway, Someday’’), decent pop ('the title track and 'Now That I’ve Lost You’), more rock-oriented numbers ('Mother’s Brother’s’) and an odd nod at psych (the killer 'Dreams of You’ was alone worth the admission price). As lead singer Fiori was quite good, particularly when he toughened up his delivery ('In Every Way’), where his growl recalled Rare Earth’s singer (Pete Rivera?). To be honest, had the set been a little more focused with a couple more psych and rock numbers, this would have been a major, high priced collectable (not that it’s cheap now)…..Bad Cat….~
