1966-67 Bay Area band, whose members would go on to various sorts of
fame. Mainly instrumental music of a highly eclectic nature, mixing
modal Eastern sounds with impressionist classical and plain old SF acid
rock. Embryonic versions of two It's A Beautiful Day numbers can be
heard. Somewhat challenging and with below average sound quality, but
well worth hearing for purveyors of mid-60s freak sounds and of obvious
historical value. [PL]~Acid Archives
is what we would name some of the best, most important, unreleased at
the time, historical and lost westcoast psychedelic recordings ever.
legendary band includes none other that the famed Kenneth Anger
soundtrack creator Bobby Beausoleil as well as a very young David
LaFlamme, before starting his legendary band "It's A Beautiful Day”.
for the music, we are talking waaaaayyy out tunes here! This is the
missing link between the Drone Avantgarde and the Hippie Scene
symbolized by 2 people that couldn't be further apart. The complete
B-side features a single long tune which can best be described as
Theatre of Eternal Music (the famed Pre-Velvet Underground La Monte
Young/ John Cale Drone Band) meets It's A Beautiful Day. On the other
side you will find middle eastern influenced hippie psychedelic jams
that will remind you of bands like the "BEAT OF THE EARTH”.
