You Used To Think

(ESP-Disk') Used CD $10.00

Recorded at the tail end of 1968 and remastered for this 2009 reissue, this densely packed album, rooted in blues-laden acid folk, is gradually dominated by more free-form, jazz-influenced vocals that usher a frantic climax. It’s a collage of fucked-up Eastern ragas, jazz, and atonal folk rock, delivered in a beautiful, raspy, feverish, drug-induced howl by Pomerance, a Canadian documentary film maker, poet and singer songwriter firmly linked to a lyrical base, with an eclectic band from a variety of disciplines. Groovy flutes, buzzing sitar, minimalist piano, bongos, sax squawk, and tambourines create a vision-drenched psychedelic stew.
