Vinyl Dynamite #31: Plantasia
Say what you like about the seventies, one thing is for sure - they loved their house plants. Ferns, one of the hardest plants to keep alive, were friggin' everywhere - primarily hanging from burnt orange macramé. Talking to plants actually was a popular fad - I mean there was some serious plant love going on in the 1970s (and not just the kind of plants you smoke). In fact, there were a number of records released throughout the decade which specifically were designed for plants to "hear". Sure, geraniums don't have ears; but, they can feel the groovy vibrations, man.
Here's a track from the insanely mellow album Plantasia (1976). The artist here is Mort Garson, the dude that composed the epic lounge hit "Our Day Will Come" (1963) and dabbled in the dark arts of the moog. He was also a wicked game show theme composer.
So, pull up your Boston Ferns and other green friends around the house. Especially, you Spider Plant - this one goes out to you.
