With the recent release of Lightning Hopkins' Free Form Patterns U.K.'s Charly Records have completed their Limited Edition Deluxe Digi-book series of the International Artists album catalog. All have been remastered and housed in hardcover digi-books, some containing two or three CDs if enough bonus or rare material was available, and generous booklets featuring photos and memorabilia. Some of the bonus tracks throughout the releases can also be found on the Epitaph for a Legend compilation as well. There have been grumbles in some circles about the remastering, but for the time being these are the best bet out there. Besides this release, which was IA-1, the rest of the series includes RED CRAYOLA 'Parable of Arable Land' (IA-2), LOST AND FOUND 'Everybody's Here' (IA-3), THE GOLDEN DAWN 'Power Plant' (IA-4), 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS '...Read more ›

One of the great 60's punk wreckords dosed and spiked with some crushed orangeaid kool krush lysergia. Rocky Erikson warps his mind around the lyrical delivery like a crazed man hanging onto a door handle as the rough hands of the state are trying to pry him off to for a "rest" in the local hospital. A problem that beset Rocky as he was arrested for the possession of one Cannabis cigarette led to 3 years of intensive psychiatric experimentation at the hands of the state who aimed to destroy his brain with their own forms of chemical and electrical intervention.

A travesty of attempted correction and coercion as they altered his mind for the worse. They down't laark long haaaairrrsss in Tix asss

This album was recorded pre confinement and catches the man in his prime psychedelicious primeval glory. The guitars fuzz, the harmonica burns a hole in the mouth and the lyrical delivery is demented whilst a strange warping sound appears in every track. 3 chord fuzz punkers that when it hit San Fran Cisco changed the it from laid back acoustic folk strummers into turned on blues plank bashers.

This was the true sound of the 60's.

An absolutely essential purchase for any psych fan, purely for the reason that it represents the 1st time in over 40 years that the original MONO mix has been officially released!! As many will know, the mono mix is far superior to the stereo: more upfront, less reverb, a much better balance of sound. Short of $helling out for an original copy, here's an AFFORDABLE chance to hear this seminal album the way it was intended! Just like the mono 'Piper At The Gates Of Dawn', 'Velvet Underground & Nico' and many others, there really IS that much difference! Dig it immediately!
