Agemo’s Trip To Mother Earth

(Pseudonym) Used LP $25.00

The nominal concept of one of the most ambitious psychedelic albums to emerge from continental Europe in the late 1960s recounts the journey of the titular character from a paradise-like planet to the more chaotic imperfection of Earth. The album keeps pace with British psychedelia (particularly the Pink Floyd school), with hints of the onset of progressive rock in its less-conventional passages. Plenty of melodic shifts, celestial organ, wiggling and distorted guitar, vocal harmonies, quasi-Gregorian chants, Mothers-of-Invention-like horns, beatific respites, and just, you know, general freakiness. Dutch repress from 1998 of 1968 LP.
