Brainticket - Cottonwood Hill (remastered)

SKU 28-CLE294.2
The mind-expansive, first and most psychedelic release by this Swiss band with German/krautrock label and musical ties. A 1971 classic, no doubt, this is taken from the master tapes. What can you possibly say about an album that includes the following warning: "Only listen once a day to this record. Your brain might be destroyed. Hallelujah Records takes no responsibility"??

"Reissue of one of the essential early 70s psychedelic freak-out albums, first issued by the Hallelujah label in Switzerland in 1971. Licensed to German Bellaphone soon thereafter, this is generally considered one of the peak Krautrock experiences... This new CD, legitly reissued by the original Swiss manufacturer -- Phonag Records, offers improved sound & reproduces the fantastic swirl cover. At this point in time, Brainticket were made up of: Joel Vandroogenbroeck (organ, flute), Ron Bryer (guitar), Werni Frohlich (bass), Coismo Lampis (drums), Wolfgang Paap (tabla), Dawn Muir (voice) & Hellmuth Kolbe (potentiometers, generators and soundeffects). This is their first album (sometimes referred to as "self-titled) and is quite different and more radical than anything else in their discography. It features an outlandlish churning groove of a sound (vaguely comparable to Can or Funkadelic at their most tweaked), is deeply immersed in LSD mythology and is littered with electronic effects and collage-like elements leading towards the cover's warning: "Listen to the first recordings of this LSD/Hashish/Fixy/Jointy sound. Take a trip to your inner light. See the hallucinations of reality rise out of the groove. You've got your Brainticket now!"
