When Sonny Bono dropped his only solo album in 1967, he was 32 — which went against the grain of his hippie-teen target audience who were advised by free-speech activist Jack Weinberger not to trust anyone over 30. It’s not surprising then that Inner Views inadvertently plays more like a grown man trying to explain psychedelia to the parents of young longhairs; and somehow this just makes the album that much more enjoyable and kitschy, especially if you can get past the lengthy opening title-track where Bono pulls out all the trippy, dippy pop-culture stops as he rambles nonsensical lyrics and misrepresented hip jargon over sitars, organs, Dylanesque harmonicas and even a reference to the Beatles’ “A Day In The Life.” The more ambitious “I Told My Girl to Go Away” plays with a nursery rhyme whimsy as well arranged orchestral accompaniment reveal that Bono learned much while studying production with Phil Spector. The endearing love song “I Would Marry You Today” is definitely playlist-worthy, however “Pammie’s On a Bummer” plays (possibly unintentionally) like an anti-drug PSA.
