Greatest album by supreme California guitar group,
This review is from: Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus (Audio CD)
Spirit were breaking up when they recorded this masterpiece. I have been listening to it since the 1970's and never get tired of it. If you like Hendrix style inventiveness, 60's pop, and the West Coast sound, you have a great surprise in store. Lots of hooks, sound effects, guitars turning corners at high speed. Charismatic axeman Randy California is no longer with us - he drowned while saving his son at sea. The group were into a religious path called Urantia if you want to know what made them tick. Lots of mysteries, enjoy the Doctor's prescription.

this was indeed the finest of the Sprit albums California guitar playing I have read may well have been influenced by Hendrick's as they Jammed together the mp3 download of twevle dreams seem to have had the guts ripped out of it so if you buy this purchase the c d to avoid disappointment I have had the album and cd for years also try the album before twelve dreams.
