2 brill albums in one package. Blazing guitar work in both sets, but "Mass" is the Sixties' classic that repays continual listenings. I'm working on The Kol Nidre too - perhaps it'll get there as well....

My purchase of this was preceded by the long standing reputation of the Electric Prunes' 1968 LP Mass In F Minor as 'revolutionary' and 'superb psychedelic rock' etc. This 'twofer' of the album with it's thematically related follow up LP is a better buy, I think, than the more expensive single album with other unrelated bonus tracks by the band. There are no bonus tracks here. The LPs were short and the twofer clocks in at 51 minutes in total. It is a fine product though, of good sound quality, with some brief explanatory notes as well as the original sleeve notes of pretentious nonsense.
It was doubtless revolutionary at the time but time passes and leaves this a little clunky sounding, but very much a sixties curio of interest. Forget any singles you may have heard by the Electric Prunes, this barely features the band and both are essentially David Axelrod albums using the Prunes' name and session musicians. He was the "writer and arranger" of both LPs, although derived from medieval church music. The Mass is the better one; the second has more strings and English 'lyrics' of the same intent as the latin originals but thereby losing any mystique. It's sort of 'Arvo Part lite for rock band'. As 'psychedelia' it is fairly low grade, as rock it's OK for session players, but as a sixties curio it's a splendid evocation of the period.
