The Forum - The River Is Wide mp3 album

The Forum was a vocal group organized by Les Baxter whose members were Phil Campos, Riselle Bain and Rene Nole who would marry Campos. The group evolved from an earlier folk music group called Les Baxter's Balladeers. Campos, Bain and Nole split off into The Forum in 1966 as part of the folk rock craze. They had one hit record in 1967 on Mira Records with "The River Is Wide". Their debut release was with "The River Is Wide", released in 1966 on the Penthouse label. It didn't make any significant progress. Nothing happened the second time around either.

Really fun and cool exotica/psych album. Trip on Me" is a fabulously hilarious attempt to jump the psych bandwagon. Definitely worth a listen! Reply See 1 reply Notify me Helpful.
