ODYSSEY "Setting Forth" [12" LP, Clear Blue Vinyl]
2019 - Progressive from Sweden
Once upon a time, when the music business was more music than business (but only just), there was a band that created a quintessential dose of New York sixties psychedelia-strong harmonic vocals, heavy swirling organ, and fuzz guitar riffs of the greatest ferocity. Finally, their lone album-one of the ten rarest and most sought after US psychedelic albums-is available again: painstakingly remastered, repackaged, and ready for true psych fans to devour. This is truly one of the cornerstones of underground psychedelic music, recorded in 1969, released in an edition of fewer than 100 copies, and impossible to find as it only came in a plain white cardboard sleeve. An album that jumps right out of the speakers at you, from it's opening "In-a-gadda-da-vida" riffs right to the very end.
