A true product of their times, Lothar & The Hand People emerged in the late '60s, only to disappear a few years later. This, their debut album, fully tells the story of the band as Lothar & The Hand People mix folk-rock with psychedelia. It's all done in a manner that decades later sounds less revolutionary than quaint, but it's just this kind of quaintness that lends this album its enduring charm.
Songs like "That's Another Story" show the band's New York City coffeehouse roots. Lothar & The Hand People shift from sounding a bit like the Lovin' Spoonful or the Youngbloods on some tracks, to sounding like a gentler version of Devo (as on "Kids Are Little People") on others. The "Lothar" in the band's name refers to the theremin they'd use on some of the songs. When reissued on compact disc, six additional songs--originally the A- and B-sides of their first three singles--were added.
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (1/00, pp.94-5) - "One of many eccentrics who represented the kooky, accessible face of the late '60s psychedelic underground....will charm the paisley shirt off any Elephant 6 aficionado..."
