4.0 out of 5 stars Psych Spaghetti Western Style....and it works! 1 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
C.A. Quintet's sound is pretty unique. The album has some strong catchy commercial psych tracks like "Dr of Philosophy" on it mixed in with some quite way out wig outs - "Trip Thru Hell" for instance. The sound incorporates a strong element of spaghetti western style trumpet which works well with the rest of the organ and guitar driven tunes. This is one of the strongest albums from that era, and I believe it was recorded in quite primitive conditions which makes it all the more of a great achievement. Definitely recommended.

This wonderful album runs the whole gamut of the musical geography of the 1960s - from its free love innocence to the holocaust of its destruction in 1969.
It was recorded between 1967 and 1969 but in truth it has its eyes on the nasty end of the Sixties Dream that was coming from the word Go. The first track is full of threat and gathering darkness, smoothly expressed, with ethereal choric voices, before erupting into a nazi-esque drum passage, and then another passage,of janglingly dissonant instrumentation. Just in case you thought they weren't a guitar band they prove otherwise in a searing guitar break, dissonant of course, in "Underground Music". "Trip Thru Hell Part Two" fulfils everything you dreaded might happen in a shocking climax. What makes the whole package all the more horrific is the easy simplicity of the rock music tunes this band riffs. It sets you up for a sucker punch then boy do you go down. Awesome album.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Obscure Classic of the Late 1960s 13 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
Recorded in 1968 and being the only studio album from the CA Quintet, Trip Through Hell is in many ways typical of its era. It's an American psychedelic album that contains more than a trace of Brit Invasion influence, and thus sits well with The Blues Magoos' Basic and The Chocolate Watch Band's No Way Out, as well as many other equally lysergically bathed albums of that most confusing of eras. That's not to say that C A Quintet's offering doesn't stand out from the crowd. For a start they're not from California. There isn't even a hint of the Mamas and Papas here, though if you listen closely you might detect a Doorsesque sensibility. The closest comparisons I can make are to The Pretty Things' S F Sorrow and The Spoils of War's first album. Those are very different albums, and there is indeed a sense of schizophrenia. However, there is continuity and coherency aplenty. The first nine tracks, which make up the original vinyl release, take the listener through a varied landscape of light and shade. The whimsical Brit-influenced self-contained pieces are arranged beautifully, with sweet melodies and deft musicianship, but always leaving room for discordant, chiefly improvised sections of Velvet Underground-like noise. The recording quality is, by today's standards, slightly lacking in places, but overall I'd have to give an enthusiastic thumbs up to this CD re-release from Sundazed. The packaging is nicely done and informative. The bonus tracks are all good and actually add to the whole, with only three out of ten being "alternate versions" of tracks on the album proper. Moreover, a cheekier, more playful pop sensibility is revealed in these later outtakes and singles. (I particularly enjoy "Bury Me in a Marijuana Field".) Overall, I have to say that there is something of the obscure classic to Trip Through Hell. It's quintessential, played with proficiency, imagination and gusto (a rare combination) and should by all rights be up there with Sgt Pepper's and Piper at the Gates.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Psychedelic Album 10 July 2001
By Gary Bearman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There were SO many "psychedelic" albums released in the U.S. (not to mention the rest of the world) between 1967-1969 that were spectacularly not worthy or stunningly average. This was neither. A litle gem from 1969, this rare album has been reissued on cd with a whole mess of bonus tracks. Some of the bonus tracks are better than others, but all of the original album is excellent and essential if your a conniseur of psychedelia. The nine minue Trip Thru Hell (Part 1) doesn't really seem very dark to me, but it is one of the cooler instrumentals to emerge from this era. Other standout tracks are Cold Spider and Underground Music, but really the whole thing maintains a high standard throughout which is an accomplishment from an album of any genre in my opinion. I would give this about 4 1/2 stars (5 reserved for those very rare genius albums) and recommend it highly!

4.0 out of 5 stars Crystal Ball Surprise 20 Feb 2005
By andy7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What do you do when your favorite high school prom band (circa 1966) goes prog? You enjoy a band that writes songs with the most creepy chord progressions (think abruptly shifting minor chords when you least expect them) over vocals that recall the Association in their heyday (whispery and smooth).

Best tracks: Smooth as Silk, Dr of Philosophy, Underground Music, Fortune Teller's Lie, but ironically the best track of all is their heartfelt and crushing boy loses girl masterpiece, "Blow To My Soul", which will linger in your ears hours after all the other amazing and original tunes stop playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crazy, crazy, crazy little album. 15 July 2000
By SHAI NOBELMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ever had some really bad nightmers? Ones that made you sweat and cry, without really knowing why? Red and brown colours, witches, holes, moles, desert, trees, ugly trees. Crazy crazy crazy. C.A. Quintet's sole album, is a very special-nightmerish album. Some distinctive 67'American sound, full of weird sounds, brave expermantation and some cool combination of great melodies and weird instruments. Very uniqe!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 13 Jan 2010
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For its title, Trip Thru Hell is pretty tame. This is basically garage rock with some pretty interesting elaborations.

The foundation has a 1960s DIY sound, but on top are voices, eccho, and a chours of voices that go bumb in the night. The album has the feel of a 60s 4:30 horror movie--nice fright noises, but nothing that will even raise goose bumps.

Still, you have to admire the CA quintet for expanding the peramiters of garage rock, and as music, this is pretty fun

For true frights, though, try Sacrifice by Black Widow, or the first Black Sabbath album

4.0 out of 5 stars Twin Cities Psychedelia 12 July 2005
By L. Saari - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
They were actually one of the better local bands in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul) at the time. Some of the others were Stillroven "Little Picture Playhouse", The Litter "Action Woman", The Castaways "Liar Liar" and The Trashmen "Surfin' Bird". "A Trip Through Hell" actually is a good album considering on how the recordings were done in those days, and it sounds pretty good now. No, they were not Love, The Blues Magoos or The Seeds, but they were a good band for what we had here in the 60's.
