Excellent overview of the Xian psych scene, with a focus on (finally) heavy rock instead of inept folk. Because the King of Kings is, after all, not the Joan Baez of the ages, he's the ROCK of ages. ~ by CROTCHBAT.
Vinyl was still alive in 1998 for this compilation of rare psychedelic Jesus music from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. “All the songs on this album were specifically chosen for their guitar content… some of it mellow and subtle, and some of it mind frying heavy fuzz”. For the budget-minded here’s you chance to sample tracks from rare pricey albums by Concrete Rubber Band and The Search Party, plus Agape, Exkursions, The Bridge, All Saved Freak Band, and Way International outfits Selah and Pressed Down Shaken Together & Rolling Over. And if you’ve already got all those there’s a 1967 pre-Agape song (‘In The Light’) and the six-minute stunner ‘Magic Man’ from the elusive Stonewood Cross single (man, if those guys had only cut an album – yeow!). Neat b&w cover art with Fillmore-styled psych lettering.
