"Inspired by the aural collage of The Beatles' 'Revolution Number 9,' Bill Holt quit his straight job in 1972 to follow his musical muse, hoarding various electronic gadgets and an acoustic guitar and holing up in his basement. He emerged a year later with Dreamies, one of the finest pieces of experimental pop from the era."-All Music Guide

"The overall effect is something like a primordial Olivia Tremor Control, and easily as wild and unfettered as anything The Residents were doing in the '70s. Dreamies has its obvious and acknowledged influences -- The Beatles and John Cage chief among them -- but it's also clearly the work of an untutored auteur dissecting his own mind in the basement on reel-to-reel."-Pitchfork

"Dreamies is ranked #37 on MOJO magazine's 2005 list of the "Top 50 Most Out-There Albums of All Time" (a list that includes The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, The Velvet Underground, and Miles Davis). This unique album by Bill Holt, first released in 1974, sounded way ahead of its time and became an international cult classic in the following decades. A perfect example of what was called "head music" at the time, Dreamies consists of two large suites full of Lennon-esque vocals, sound collages, early electronics and proto-sampling. The perfect marriage between psychedelia, pop, and experimental sounds. Remastered sound, original artwork, repro of the rare original insert."
