The Left Banke Artist Snapshot:

The originators of baroque pop, the Left Banke came together in mid-1960s New York City. They were masterminded by teenage prodigy keyboardist/songwriter Michael Brown, and produced by Brown's father, violinist Harry Lookofsky. Their huge 1966 hit, "Walk Away Renee," typified their sound: British Invasion-influenced pop with elegant, classically influenced arrangements (Brown's harpsichord was a key element) and production. They only stayed together for a couple of years, but their pioneering sound was an enormous influence on subsequent decades of baroque poppers. Every psych-pop ensemble that ever adorned a song with a harpsichord owes a debt to the Left Banke.

Album Description


Product Notes

This 26-cut compilation rounds up virtually everything ever recorded by the Left Banke, the awesomely talented pop band best known for the classically-influenced 1966 hits "Walk Away Renee" and "Pretty Ballerina." Songwriter/pianist/guiding light Michael Brown composed some of the loveliest melodies of the era, which were typically fleshed out with complex contrapuntal harmonies and string arrangements; "Barterers and Their Wives" sounds almost medieval, while the soaring "Desiree" is positively majestic in its epic sweep. Brown left before the recording of the band's second album, which means that the quality level dips slightly near the end of the disc. Despite this, any '60s pop collection is woefully incomplete without it. --Dan Epstein
