NOT IN STOCK
2008 repress, now in digipak. As w/ the previous 2006 CD version, this has been expanded from the original 14 tracks to 26 tracks. "Charles Manson visited New York City in the early '60s with his guitar, his songs and a vain longing for recognition; he then returned to Beverly Hills to record in 1967. While Manson was being tried and convicted for participation in the Tate-Labianca Murders, the government attempted to discredit the hippie movement by citing him as an example, hoping to defuse the rising tide of anger among the population over the war in Vietnam. But his songs, while controversial, are still considered musically and historically significant. This record was released briefly by ESP in 1974, and is now being reissued in extended format. With new and insightful liner notes by Manson acquaintance, Lie producer, and veteran rock road manager Phil Kauffman, this digitally-remastered CD contains the most comprehensive collection of recordings that Charles Manson cut prior to the Tate-Labianca Murders and includes 12 bonus tracks that were not on the original 1974 ESP release. This is the first authorized version of this album. All royalties from sales of this album go to the estate of one of Manson's victims." Originally recorded 9/11/67. Overdubs added: 8/9/68.
