"The 1968 Holy Modal Rounders' only album for Elektra Records is a cult classic. No acid folk album mixed inspiration and lunacy in as downright deranged a fashion as The Moray Eels Eat The Holy Modal Rounders. As strokes of mad genius go, it was a winner, managing to just about walk the tightrope between art and chaos. A melange of mind-melting acid folk that might have hung together by a thread, but was usually exhilarating, with a cracked, brain-damaged mystique all its own. The Moray Eels Eat The Holy Modal Rounders was, in its own way, just as steeped in Americana as any of the ancient Appalachian folk records from which Peter Stampfel and Steve Weber had learned much of their early repertoire. Available on CD for the first time. Includes 2 previously unreleased bonus tracks. New detailed liner notes by '60s music historian Richie Unterberger."
