Aesop's Fables led by singer/songwriter Sonny Bottari.
This Long Island-based group was initially signed by ATCO where they released a series of three widely ignored mid-1960s singles.
"In Due Time " is a nice psychedelic soul-rock album on the collectible Cadet Concept imprint. Sporting two capable vocalists in Sonny Bottari and drummer John Scaduto, the collection aptly demonstrated the octet's enjoyable blend of blue-eyed soul and more experimental horn based outings "Everybody's Talking" and "Look Out".
Featuring a mixture of producer Bob (Robert) Gallo-penned numbers and band originals, blue-eyed soul moves like "Lift Up Your Hearts", "What Is Soul", and The Rascals blue-eyed soul clone "What Is Love" they were quite succesful.
The band is excellent especially when one or all hit a groove like the organ freak out on "In the Morning".
A commercial pop offering, with strong soul flavor, and modest use of psych effects, as well as horns.
