The Sea Of Joy Vinyl. Chapter Music presents the next in its series of reissues by Australian psychedelic icons Tully. Sea Of Joy documents a period of massive change of the band. For the previous two years, they had been arguably Australia’s most dynamic rock group, renowned for their wild, largely improvised concerts. Their rise was meteoric, from Sydney house band for tribal love-rock musical Hair in 1969, to starring in six-part ABC TV series Fusions and performing Peter Sculthorpe rock opera Love 200 at the Sydney Town Hall. By 1970, when they released their self-titled debut album, Tully were rock stars of a very rare order in Australian music, feted by highbrow critics and teenage groupies alike. Sea Of Joy radiates a serene purity, miles removed from what people generally think of as surf music, but as Witzig wrote on the back cover, “Tully are not surfers, but there proved to be many things common to both our worlds: a feeling for peace, beauty, simplicity and freedom.” Humble, disarming and sublime, Sea Of Joy is a record like very few others in the Australian rock canon. Along with Tully’s other albums, it has had to wait far too long to be rediscovered.
