Baby Lemonade made their way onto my sonar in the late '90s, with their blissed-out, pure-pop masterstroke, Exploring Music. With that album, this marvelous L.A. trio transported themselves into an ethereal strata that a lesser band could only dream of. Naturally, I was fascinated enough to explore Baby Lemonade's previous outfit, which included the 68% Pure Imagination LP, as well as The Wonderful EP referenced in this post, both on the Sympathy For the Record Industry label. This five-cut 10" record is perhaps most notable for containing a sublime medley of the Beach Boys Smile-era "Windchimes/Wonderful," but speaking for their original material, the band was clearly on their way. Rusty Squeezebox and Mike Randall, the nuclei of Baby Lemonade, would later comprise part of Arthur Lee's backing band for the legendary reformed Love in the early part of this decade.
