The Millennium begin tshirt

T-SHIRT MODEL: Stanley / Stella Rocker (Man/Unisex) Stanley / Stella Jazzer (Woman)

The Millennium’s first and only album is one of the most important albums of what later has been called Sunshine Pop, Soft Pop, etc. to differentiate it from more rock bands, “authentic” and, in its day, protest and supposedly alternative. Time, as it usually happens, has put everyone in their place. Curt Boettcher and a group of goldsmiths of popular music put into circulation a series of masterful studio albums that from this page we try in our own way to vindicate with tshirts that remember their music. To create this t-shirt we have used all the elements that appear on the cover and insert of the original album changing only the typography of the band and album title that we have never particularly liked.

In the late 1960s, Boettcher formed a band called The Millennium with fellow songwriter and producer Gary Usher. Together, they began to assemble a group of talented musicians to form The Millennium. The initial lineup included Boettcher on vocals, guitar, and keyboards, as well as Lee Mallory on vocals, Michael Fennelly on guitar, Sandy Salisbury on vocals, Doug Rhodes on keyboards, and Ron Edgar on drums. Additional musicians were brought in to contribute to the recording of the band's debut album.

What is known is that the album was recorded over a period of several months, and involved the contributions of numerous musicians, arrangers, and engineers. The sessions were reportedly very meticulous, with Boettcher and Usher paying close attention to every detail of the recording and mixing process. It is often said that The Millennium's self-titled debut album, released in 1968, was one of the most expensive albums of its time, but it is difficult to verify this claim. While the album was certainly ambitious in terms of its production values and orchestration, it is unclear how much it actually cost to produce.

The Millennium's self-titled debut album was released in 1968 and is now considered a cult classic. The album features intricate vocal harmonies, lush orchestration, and ambitious songwriting that set it apart from other pop and rock albums of the time. The album's standout tracks include "To Claudia On Thursday," "I Just Want to Be Your Friend," and "It's You."

Despite critical acclaim, The Millennium's album was not a commercial success and the band disbanded shortly after its release. Boettcher continued to work as a producer and arranger throughout the 1970s, and passed away on June 14, 1987, at the age of 43. However, the music of The Millennium has continued to attract new fans and inspire generations of musicians with its innovative and ambitious approach to pop music.
