Boomkat Product Review:
A psychedelic holy grail re-issued. This is it! was originally cut in 1962 and is regarded by many as the first aural document of psychedelia. It is a plundering, blistering, free form freakout of totally unselfconscious group sonic exploration. Alan Watts led a cadre of musicians and non-musicians alike through communal chant, primitive choogle and raw american tribalism that features many of the same bay area heads that appeared earlier on Locust's electronic kabuki mambo - the inimitable satirist and collage whiz henry jacobs, genius percussionist william loughborough (early performer with chet baker/harry partch) among many others. this is where the so-called "weird america" begins and if you don't find yourself with that rare facial twitch of awe, befuddlement and unbridled glee, then surely you need your head checked. Mad.
