Acid Seven - Miyako Ochi / Minami Masato / Taj Mahal Travellers / Les Rallizes Denudes - Oz Days Live 2 x CDs (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 18-OZ 01-02
"Without a doubt, this is one of the holy grails of the Japanese early seventies lysergic psych scene, together with Speed Glue & Shinki, Sato Masahiko & Soundbreakers and People/Ceremony.
Privately released in a tiny edition on the Oz Records label way back in 1973, the original artifact was and is till this day the only legitimate recording on vinyl to feature the Rallizes and Acid Seven, in addition to a side each from Minami Masato and the legendary Taj Mahal Travellers.
New double-CD reissue included the entire super-rare 1973 2xLP set commemorating "the 'Oz Days' benefit festival for the owner of Tokyo's legendary Oz rock cafe, which had been shut down after "one too many drug busts." (according to Julian Cope's book Japrocksampler)
Each of the four bands has a whole side to their disposal onto which they were allowed to open up the sonic floodgates to Valhalla. The music is completely stellar, mind-boggling and just jaw-droppingly great, leaving you, the listener, gasping for air on several moments while spinning this disc since your vital organs will just forget to function properly upon being exposed to this archeological sonic gem.
Kosugi's clitter-clatter Fluxus-induced ramshackle psychedelic drone unit the Taj Mahal Travelers put down a stunning outer-worldly and almost transcendental performance, and the Rallizes venture into an ephedrine soaked sub-linear universe of ear ripping feedback and slowed down stroboscopic madness.
This edition features reproduction of the original cover art, a fold-out insert, hand-stamped outer bag. An amazing snapshot of the formative years of the Japanese underground, fully restored at last. The complete picture for the first time!"

Really weird package,....but a great document that you probably will never find an original copy of (that you could afford , anyway!). Four sides and a few bands featured....all tracks (mostly) only here(some were "compiled" on collections). This has all the "flavor" of what must have been very cool and experimental times on the Japanese music scene in the 1970's.....experience the sound of it here. Just a cool little piece of history.
