MEGA RARE private press drug rehab/mental hospital produced spooky folk psych out of NY. Not for everyone but then again you know who you are or do you? …~



There are those among us who listen to a musical release with singleness of focus: does the music appeal to them. These are probably the purest of musical fans, because they listen to the music at its face value, and nothing else enters into the equation. They either like it or not. Doubtful this album will appeal to any of those types, as, from a purely musical perspective, its value is questionable. But as I listened to this, I immediately and instinctively knew there was more going on here then meets the eye, or ear, as the case may be. To begin with, it was obvious to me that this was a various artists album, though some of the artists appear to be involved in more than one track. I turned to “The Acid Archives” for the full back story, and discovered that this is indeed, a collection of songs by different artists. It was recorded at a rehab center/asylum. As might be expected, production value is clearly lacking, almost to the point of being non-existent. I’m guessing that at that particular point in time, someone realized that there was an unusually high concentration of music artists in house, so the idea was floated to record some tracks with an eye toward putting the results out on a privately released album. Any therapeutic value obtained in the process would be a fringe benefit. What was ultimately pressed in the grooves is a rather diverse collection of styles, with virtually nothing that will stand out to even hard core fans of any of those styles. There are some instrumentals mixed in with vocal covers of better known songs. Some of these covers are almost comically bad, crossing over into karaoke territory, as in “Get Together”. The cover of The Beatles’ “The Two of Us” also usually gets mentioned at this time, but after several listens, is clearly not as bad as “Get Together”. The lack of production is probably responsible for the garage flavor inherent in this record, but there are also elements of folk and even some heavy rock. These last represent the few bright moments, in my opinion. The record had a lot of growing power for me, but I realize that repeated listens are probably not something this collection gets very often. ….~



This is another cool LP  a nice original super rare awesome private psych rock folk LP released by inmates in a drug rehab/mental hospital that is extraordinarily rare and also a cool LP; see the Acid Archives review of this “3” rarity. Very few known copies exist.
