Description:

Reissue of a classic 1969 psychedelic album, recorded after JOE BYRD's departure from The United States Of America. This LP, created by Byrd and an extended group of West-Coast studio musicians, features some of the earliest recorded work in rock music utilizing extensive use of synthesizers and vocoder. The album is most noted for 'The Sub-Sylvian Litanies', which opens Side A. This three-part suite has been described as "an entire acid trip in 11 minutes". Other album highlights include the equally psychedelic 'The Elephant At The Door' and the politically-charged 'Invisible Man'. There's extensive use of effects, delays, echoes, backwards vocals and other recording tricks, resulting in a breathtaking collection of songs.
