Down To Middle Earth is the Debut Album by the American Soft Psychedelic Band The Hobbits.
The Hobbits was a project created by Jimmy Curtiss, who had been Labelled as a possible Teen Idol, but unlike the other Idols wrote his own material instead of having someone writing for them. Curtiss made his Debut in 1959 as a member of the Doo Wop Combo The Enjays and in 1961 made his Solo Debut for the United Artist Label, who had a plan to turn Curtiss in the next American Teen Idol. He failed to sell and become what he was expected to, so he left the Music Industry and until 1967 he worked on publicity, until he came back and started The Hobbits. Decca signed them and released their 3 Albums (The Third one as The New Hobbits) before dropping them for not achieving any success and not selling almost any Album. The name of the Band and Album comes from the Fiction Book The Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (if there is still anyone who doesn't know what an Hobbit is...). This Album is a very sought-after Soft-Psychedelic Album. After being dropped by Decca, Curtiss formed a Label and Production Company both called Perception and released material from a Band Called The Bag, supposedly The Hobbits with another name. They ended in 1969 and the whereabouts of Curtiss have been unknown since then.
Best Tracks - "Down to Middle Earth", "I’m Just A Young Man", "Daffodil Days", "Break Away", "Sunny Day Girl". The Cover is simply amazing a fantastic painting of a landscape, very orange, with some flowers and mountains drawn full of expression. One of the best Album Covers i have ever seen.
