Product Description

H.P. LOVECRAFT... the legendary 1960's Chicago underground band fondly remembered for some of the earliest FM hits. As much of a European cult as Captain Beefheart or Love, yet they remain almost a mystery band... few pictures, and few facts... until now! We also include two NEVER COMPILED NOT EVEN ON VINYL bonuses: the innovative radio edit of 'The White Ship' (the version which made it a huge FM hit!) and the staggering phased-to-the-max single mix of 'Keeper Of The Keys'! The haunting sound of H.P. LOVECRAFT as you've never heard or seen it..

Despite what another reviewer has said this album is a real gem. It has the clasic song 'The White Ship' on it for a start. This is an album that demands your attention. It is not mind candy . These guys in my opinion are up there with The Doors and the Byrds. This album is far more representative of the 'summer of love' than Sergeant Pepper as good as that album is..........

These guys were part of the Late John Peels Perfumed Garden Programme play list along with Captain Beefheart and Love. Spooky Classics, ideal FM radio fare, a cult band and a mystery. This album is well packaged and good value for money. Try some American Physcedelia and imagine being in San Francisco circa '67.

These albums were part of the soundtrack of my psychedelic youth, but I had rather forgotten about them over the decades and it was only a mention of the writer HP Lovecraft that reminded me. I don't think I appreciated then just how sophisticated some of the music was especially on HP Lovecraft 2. A lot of late 60s West Coast sounds quite dated now but this is fresh and original. The extraordinary vocals are unique with a pseudo-operatic feel. Check out the amazing "Mountains of Madness", the triumphant "Keeper of the Keys" or the psychedelic nonsense of Nothings Boy". Comparisons are invidious but perhaps the least distant relative is "Forever Changes".
My only gripe is the virtually illegible sleeve notes. Surely the record company must realize anyone who buys this is likely to be of a certain age and will probably have deteriorating eyesight!!

Apart from the fact that the occasionally strident, even mock-operatic vocals of this band might be an 'acquired taste' (especially on the track 'Keeper of The Keys'), this collection of the band's two Phillips albums is an absolute cracker. The band were obviously fans of HP Lovecraft, the reclusive horror fiction writer, and some of his portentous mystery inflects through the material - The White Ship and At The Mountains of Madness are taken from Lovecraft stories. However, the musicianship and arrangements are also top notch, and there are pleasing jazzy touches throughout, making this an album that is every bit the match of the early Pink Floyd albums. 'Blue Jack of Diamonds' comes across as a kind of early music / troubadour influenced thing. There's also something eerie about their sound, and their stylistic variety is little short of stunning. 'It's About Time' is magnificent, with a fantatsic orchestrated break that leaps from the speakers. All this, plus, with 'Gloria Patria', a smidgeon of Gregorian Chant, too. You should check out the Live HP Lovecraft album, as well, which shows that they could match their recorded majesty in a live setting too.

This contains two albums (HP Lovecraft and HP Lovecraft II) plus some hard to find tracks which were only released as singles. It's of its time without a doubt but no more so than other artists who were HP Lovecraft's contempories at the time. This was cutting edge stuff when it was released. The cross channel panning may make you feel sick when you hear it now, and it may seem like art for arts sake, bit hey, it's there on Hendrix recordings, Airplane recordings etc etc. One reviewer wrote that they couldn't hear anything to get excited about, well, you should have been there at the time is all I can say. I know young guys who can't see what all the fuss was about The Beatles yet where would Oasis be without their legacy? This album contains two tracks that were the original recordings of songs covered by, and hits for, UK beat groups. Anyway That You Want Me was a hit for The Troggs while Let's Get Together was a hit for the Dave Clark Five.
This album is of its time, if you're of that time you'll probably still love it. Don't bogart that joint my friend.

I would say the HP Lovecraft are in the same league as the Strawberry Alarm Clock and the Electric Prunes.They do plenty of covers which for me is a plus factor.
Maybe no hit singles but after all the Doors never served what they got and Love-surely the stupidest name a band ever had-was grossly overrated.
Other psychedelic bands were even less fortunate-the Clefs of Lavender Hill cut enough tracks for an album which was dumped in the vaults
