Brilliant stuff, certainly as good as Hendrix. The original LP was very short but at least the extra tracks get it to a reasonable (LP) length. My personal favourite is "Downer" but there isn't a bad track throughout. If you like psychedelic power trios you'll love this. Of course if you don't you'll probably hate it!

A fine acid rock souvenir of the early Seventies 20 May 2003
By The Sanity Inspector - Published on
Format: Audio CD
If you're here, then you know. Just pull out your credit card while you read this.
First, the Jimi thing. Randy California may have influenced him, rather than vice versa. In _Jimi Hendrix Electric Gypsy_, we read about how a young California runaway played in a band with Hendrix for a little while. His name was Randy Wolfe. Since there were two Randy's in the band, Jimi called them Randy Texas and Randy California. The latter went on to form Spirit with Ed Cassidy. Shortly after Jimi's death, Randy C. turned solo, letting his guitar playing burn more than it had in the jazzier Spirit. His first solo album, "Kaptain Kopter and the Fabulous Twirly Birds", is as devout a testament to Hendrix's music as has ever been waxed.
Mind you, it isn't a _great_ album. Randy never did get very good at being a front-man. And the crew obviously toked up and decided to fiddle with every dial on the mixing board, not always to enjoyable effect. In fact, much of the album sounds like it's being played through blown tweeters--the joke being that they'll save us the trouble, I suppose. But check out his cover of "Day Tripper." It is very much in the same vein as the Jimi version on the Radio One cd. "Devil" is an affecting acid ballad, I guess you'd call it. "Downer" is a cacophany of guitar noise--heavy, man! "Things Yet To Come" is a long, simple tone poem for bass line and wah-wah, very early 70's, very groovy, very hard to get out of your head. And he hits an opposite field upper deck home run with another Beatles cover, "Rain". It starts off with a silly country-rock riff which gets progressively more manic. This collapses into a hideous laugh, and the song gets in gear, in earnest. California overdubs himself thrice: whaling away on the two-chord riff, playing VERY druggy lead, all bottom-string trills and upper-end portamentoes, and letting fly with some jimi-ish glissandi, screeching and swooping over everything. This is the song that the Rolling Stone reviewer was probably thinking of when he called the album a "mega-watt garage bomb."
To make the Hendrix tribute more obvious, Randy brought in Noel Redding to play bass, under the name "Clit McTorius." One listen to this and you'll immediately catch the long-gone acid rock image: velvet pants, fringed leathers, American flag headband, the whole trippy works. The cd has kind of a half-baked feel to it, but the well-done parts are well done indeed. Buy this one while you still can!

Lost Treasure 13 Jun. 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
As a classic rock DJ on a public radio station I am always looking for gems and nuggets, overlooked and undervalued. This is the best New Old music I've heard in a good while. It has real blues roots and the kind of great guitar you'd expect from someone who played in Jimi Hendrix's group, (before he was famous in the US.) It's psychedelic electric blues; it's what I wish the Black Crowes would do. After I was gifted with this CD I could hardly bear to take it out of the CD player in my car, because in a little convertible, with the volume turned up, it can make you feel 17 again. I promise.

I've been waiting a long time 3 Sept. 2002
By jim warner - Published on
Format: Audio CD
After being unavailable for 25 years,I was overjoyed to slip this into my cd player.The best songs are Downer, and Mother and child reunion,but everything else is cool also.Basiclly, this is a long jam session,including some very good covers.Some listeners,however, may be put off by the less than stellar sound quality.It's too bad Randy California is no longer with us.

Great Early Randy California material 20 Mar. 2003
By Tommy - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album was released during Randy Caliornia's Spirit years. It also features one of the greatest overlooked drummers of all time, Ed Cassidy. This is an experimental jam project that turned out beautifully. Not only does it have the uniqueness that charactrizes Spirit, but it throws in a new energy an artful creativeness that wasn't missing in Spirit but is rearranged to create a new beautifull masterpiece. You can hear Randy's early Jimi James influences in some songs along with his and Cassidy's incredible stylistic creativity. There are also some great cover songs on this album. You must own or hear this album if you like Spirit, Jimi Hendrix, or simply enjoy great classic rock.

American Psychedelia 22 Aug. 2005
By booboo bear - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This was/is a great example of what the west coast psychedelic crowd was capable of at one time. Continuous reinvention and no time for boredom. Hearing this again brings back memories of smokey basements with legless maroon sofas, stereo toast nailed to graffiti sheeted walls... white clinical, turkey buns, orange double barrel and California Sunshine.

If that makes no sense mix 500 micrograms of any of the above in your OJ and slip this into the CD player.

This is some of my favorite acidrock and definitely pure Randy California sans additives/preservatives or any other harmful chemicals.
