Yesterday's Children

Sad born loser

Yesterday's Children was an obscure psychedelic hard rock group from Connecticut. The band was led by brothers Dennis Croce on vocals and Richard Croce on guitar. The line-up was completed by Chuck Maher on bass, Ralph Muscatelli on drums and Reggie Wright on lead guitar. Kurt, charged with light and sound adjustment, was the sixth member of the band. The group is not to be confused with a Chicago-area group of the same name and era who appeared on the Pebbles box set. They recorded only one stunning self-titled album and a classic psychedelic garage single, "To be or not be", which appears on the Psychedelic Unknowns compilation. While the debut single was classic beat garage of the 1966 period, by the 1969 album the group expanded into a more hard rock and psych style. The album is drenched in the lead guitar blitz of Reggie Wright. It's an underground classic and a great slice of American psychedelic hard rock. The reissue on the Italian obscure specialist label, Akarma, is a nice remaster of the original.
