T.I.M.E. - Time/Smooth Ball (1968-69)

T.I.M.E. stands for Trust In Men Everywhere. They were from Los Angeles and the guitarists Larry Byrom and Bill Richardson had their origins in The Hardtimes who released one album and five 45's, all on the World Pacific label. The first T.I.M.E. longplayer is a pretty good mixture of psychedelic, sunshine pop and late sixties rock. On "Smooth Ball", their second and final release, they were shown in a heavier format. It contains "Trust In Men Everywhere", to my ears one of their strongest and most psychedelic songs. See For Miles released both albums on one CD in 1996 (See For Miles C5HCD 643). To complete their history I have attached their only non-LP A-side from their last single, "What Would Life Be Without It".
