Ash Ra Tempel / Timothy Leary - Seven Up vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 21-MG Art 613 LP
The fairly insane third album where Timothy Leary, on the run from the Feds, ends up in Switzerland surrounded by happy hippies. Remastered by Manuel Göttsching himself!
Their third album was named after the LSD-laced soft drink that these guys were now ingesting by the caseload. A big psychedelic / spaceout jam type disc, with the side long live track being a real highlight. This does have some pretty great moments (the live side being pretty outstanding overall) (& if you are a fan of stoned hippie fuckery, this could be your favorite of their releases), but I would not personally recommended that you start with this one.

“Recorded in August 1972 at Sinus Studio in Berne, Switzerland, remixed September 1972 at Dierks Studios in Stommeln, Germany. First release in spring 1973 by OHR Musik -- the first release on the new sub-label "Kosmische Kuriere". Seven Up in a re-cut carefully overseen by Manuel Göttsching himself. Features the full original text for the "7 Levels of Consciousness" by Timothy Leary in English, i.e. "Instruction Manual for Pleasure Panel" plus a previously unreleased glimpse view of the original scripts including notes and mark ups as well as partly unreleased photos from the recording session. Gatefold; four-page inlay.”
