Brainticket - Cottonwoodhill vinyl lp + CD (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 05-LR 313LP
The great first album (of 3 great ones and then a number of not so great ones) by this Swiss band who operated in Germany and are thought of as being a 'krautrock' band and who were in terms of the music and the spirit, if not actually of German nationality.
"Being as LSD was first developed in a laboratory in Basel, it is perhaps no coincidence that one of the most far-out albums of all time was made by this Swiss band -- no small feat, given the competition! Brainticket's 1971 debut, Cottonwoodhill, begins normally enough with two fine psychedelic/krautrock-influenced tracks, but the remainder of the album plays like an acid trip with a soundtrack, dominated by Joël Vandroogenbroeck's endless droning organ, a variety of musique concrète-type sound effects, and vocalist Dawn Muir's trippy vocals. The album, banned in several countries, even came with this self-imposed warning: 'After Listening to this Record, your friends may not know you anymore. Only listen to this once a day, or your brain might be destroyed!'"
