Merlins Nose Records present the first official reissue of Kali Bahlu's Cosmic Remembrance, originally released in 1967. In 1967, Kali Bahlu felt that it was time to "simply speak the truth as it comes to me from the other side". She believes that we're all tapped in a cosmic game, and her overall adorably wisdom folly, that she preserved into her old days, could lead to the assumption that she's been the grandmother of characters like Luna Lovegood. Cosmic Rememberance features four narrations performed by Kali with a bright and sometimes piercing voice in which she unveils her visions to the listener. What awaits isn't exactly the typical flower pop with colorful harmonies; this is an entirely different affair. She speaks, screams, laughs, and sings with that lovely lunatic expression in her voice on a base of droning music that is a combination of classic Indian raga with sitar, table, and a few other eruptive sound creating instruments a really mystifying atmosphere. The music and narrations drag you into a colorful world of strange plants and creatures. They tell you enchanted stories of leprechauns, fairies, witches, Lemurian kings, angels, and "the Northwind [that] got stoned of marijuana...". This reissue includes two bonus tracks and extended linernotes; Comes in a gatefold sleeve.
