First released on Vertigo in April 1972, this is the first LP by Miki Curtis (Samurai front man) following the break-up of the band. It's a fantastically otherworldly psychedelic LP and a totally different sound than Samurai. The First Ear finds Eastern-tinged psych of the highest echelon! Strange harmony vocals, a spacy guitar solo, queerly sawing synths, everything's efficient and even compelling! "Forty days on a stoned-out camel" moans Miki (yes, he knows some English, too) and that is just how this sounds. The track ends with half a minute of noisy slurping on what we presume to be a waterpipe. Mind-blowing. Digitally remastered and pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Comes with an English translation of the original Japanese LP insert.
