The Beat Of The Earth: same 1967, USA/Radish AS-0001. Discis in stunning M- visual shape, many copies have pressing flaws such assurface scuffs or bubbles/craters, this is a beautiful example! That said, it is a 60s private press so it will not play perfectly quiet. Cover is M- in shrink wrap.The Beat Of The Earth was not a rock band proper, but a musical collective of local hippies and ex-Beatniks. This first LP isa collectionof improvisations recorded live in the studio and it's like a document of the unpredictablesound collage that one might haveexperienced at one of the early acid happenings. It really works, you canpractically seethe liquid light show on the walls as it plays. Viewed with that mindset, it's a perfect album. It sounds just like it's supposed to, and the cover absolutely reeks of southern Californiahippie vibes. Two sidelong flipouts with Lou Reed-like vocals and totally druggy, primitive instrumentation; this LP has mesmerized more than a few psych collectors over the years. A real unique item from California's vast 1960s music canon. The band is well-represented on YouTube, just type in Beat Of The Earth and look for the album cover in the queue.
