Pink Freud: The Light Side of the Ego
by Mark Cammack September 3, 2019
This rare album cover from Case Records is one you may have never seen before. Pink Freud: The Light Side of the Ego is from a wonderful happy time when psychology was fused with classic rock. The themes are upbeat as you can see from the joyful smiles of the artists in the photo. Although skeptical of the "American experiment," the Austrian and Swiss band members perform well and lull us into new dreamy worlds. If you listen to the album long enough, you may not want to come back. They are that good.
Welcome to the Freudian Machine is a song about a man's journey, in reality our journey, through life. Sigmund's singing is cheerfully haunting and beyond words. Once you hear it you will always remember it. Uncomfortably Dumb reflects on the light side of dullness. If we just polish our minds enough, they will become bright. Another Fall in the Recall is humorous piece about a fellow who is constantly forgetting things, like being married. In People are funny we hear Carl Jung at his best on his Gibson Les Paul guitar. He is the archetypal guitarist.
