Inspired by the aural collage of The Beatles' 'Revolution Number 9,' Bill Holt quit his straight job in 1972 to follow his musical muse, hoarding various electronic gadgets and an acoustic guitar and holing up in his basement. He emerged a year later with Dreamies, one of the finest pieces of experimental pop from the era. --All Music Guide
- "The overall effect is something like a primordial Olivia Tremor Control, and easily as wild and unfettered as anything The Residents were doing in the '70s. Dreamies has its obvious and acknowledged influences -- The Beatles and John Cage chief among them -- but it's also clearly the work of an untutored auteur dissecting his own mind in the basement on reel-to-reel.--Pitchfork
