REWIND: Mid Day Rain - 'Welcome To The Rain'

Here's another rare gem that I thought I found via the excellent Twitter page @a45aday, but after a recent check, evidence suggests it must have been somewhere else that I heard this a little while ago. Despite the "rain" in the band's name and song title, this obscure 1970 treasure released on RCA Records has summer vibes all over it. Laid back, melancholic and blessed with enchanting harmonies, 'Welcome To The Rain' is an underrated treasure of 60s pop that charms and touches the heart. It seems that Mid Day Rain only released two songs, this and it's B side '. It is believed that Gnarls Barkley sampled this song on the 'St. Elsewhere' track 'Online'.
