Label: ACID SYMPOSIUM
An album which has had a mystical allure for the stoned elite around the world since it's initial release. This rare psychedelic/progressive freak-rock album, released in 1973 on Harvest in Sweden, has great instrumental wealth -- flutes, guitars, maracas, timbales, harmonica, and remarkable percussion -- resulting in five songs with very special character that have, at times, a very North American sound. Panta Rei's tight playing and Thomas Arnesen's terrific searing guitar leads directly resulted in the recording of this, Panta Rei's only album -- a great effort from a band who tried to record an album after playing at a big acid festival in Uppsala in 1971, but got so stoned that nothing got done, and the tapes went up in smoke. An amazing combination of trippy blessed-out guitar raves, complex compositions, and consciousness-expanding improvisation which sounds better today than ever before. Cover art scientifically designed to keep your mind focused intently on the music.
