Excellent album! One person found this helpful. Don't be duped by the name - the band comes from Corpus Christi in Texas, and has nothing to do with proto-doom.
Don't get deceived by the reviews and editorials either - that was second if not third rate outfit, quite predicable, essentially blues-inspired some tracks - "Creation - A Child" definitely incorporated elements borrowed from Grand Funk; by the way, I consider it the best song of the album , but by the time they released their debut and only album - it was on small local Acorn label , they were somehow outdated - "Not Mine" and "Mythical Dream" are "ballsy" pieces, but they perfectly suite some neutered wealthy crooner of the 50s, and not hard-rocking act.
All in all, it was well produced, solidly played over-ambitious album, which totally lacks personality - in spite of enthusiastic review in the Acid Archives, the vocals of Richard Deleon are weakest point of "Corpus" - the voice is relatively strong, sure and confident, but shows no emotions or passion whatsoever. I do agree that "Corpus" could be local heroes for a while didn't we all had our own little local idols in the 70s?
Even if you are looking for obscure Texan groups from these days, you might easily find musicians of great talent: Up Through the Spiral ; Grown In U. Shimmering guitar, perfect percussion, brilliant vocal style, great bass Never heard of this group before, so thanks to YT for making it one of my suggestions to listen to.
I was in Jr. High when this was recorded, living in Casper, WY and listening to Rubber Soul for the first time I was a child in Oklahoma when Beatles' albums were being burned. Needless to say, theirs weren't the albums we were given at Christmas, lol. Very very thrilled to have been turned on to this group of musicians Very poetic lyrics, very masculine "found my Soulmate and she's Venus in my mind" stuff I have to say this is one of the greatest albums I have ever heard.
I own one of the original copies on vinyl and I have to say this is one of the greatest albums I have ever heard! Very rare, especially the original. I have only seen 2 originals on vinyl in my life time.

The rhythm guitar is generally laid-back with a full kind of Marshall Gibson, with little or no saturation. The singing is clear, mix of 60's Pop crooner and "blue-eyes-Soul. The bass is groovy, and the guitar solos are sparkling and bewitching. Musicians who are strong to inject pure emotion into their game. A forgotten gem, close to the masterpiece.
It is worth it get acquainted! Thanks for all appreciation. We lost one of our own Wendsday, Gilbert. Again thanks William Grate. The music is excellent! Hats off to the great band! I post comments from time to time. I thank all of you for accepting our music. Yes, Bill is correct, we are one less band member. Gilbert rest in peace. Thanks to All Post a Comment. Some of it is rootsy blues-rock which wins out on pure class and power, but the highlights are undoubtedly two psych-flavored epics that could easily slide onto the Garrett Lund or D.
Hooker LPs: the nocturnal, moodily jazz-tinged Mythical Dream and the even better Joy, whose combination of soaring vocals and superbly controlled feedback licks will have any fan of 70s private press sounds flip out The music is given additional appeal by realistic lyrics about relationships and fatherhood, planned and unplanned, that retain a male perspective without degenerating into macho cliches. I bet these guys were local heroes among kids cruising around Corpus, and in another time and place they would have hit the big time.
Despite reservations, impressive and a must hear for s rock fans, while undoubtedly too much 'classic rock' for '60s guys. A marvy cosmic yet primitive sleeve adds bonus points'.
