Far Out - Nihonjin

SKU 28-EVRL800.2
Classic 1971 Japanese psychedelic progressive rock reissued from the master tapes as supplied by Nippon Columbia!!
"Prior to metamorphosing into Far East Family Band, Japan's Far Out released this sole, space-y, guitar-drenched psychedelic prog album in 1971. Although the Floyd influences are highly apparent, the band produces an original sound which defines its own unique identity rather than being a reflection of the British and American bands that were dominating the genre. Although there is a keyboard-dominated opening, synthesizers are relegated to a supporting role, and their sparse presence is restricted to occasional sound effects. The psychedelic ambiance comes largely from the guitars, electric sitars and intelligent percussion. The original album contained just two single-sided tracks, and the intense guitar soloing, fantastic sound effects, including gongs and howling wind drones, combine to create an album of sparse beauty which effortlessly merges exotic Asian instrumentals with a psych sound occasionally reminiscent of Saucerful Of Secrets.”

"...the blend of progressive, psychedelic and Japanese elements creates an interesting mesh that punches this far beyond some imitation Floyd."-All Music Guide
