180 gram exact repro reissue of the band's fourth album, manufactured by Rhino. Originally released in 1968, this album continues David Axelrod's interest in combining classical religious music with rock instrumentation, this time taking aim at "The Kol Nidre," a centuries-old Yom Kippur prayer. "Songs like the liturgical 'Holy Are You' and the mostly instrumental 'General Confessional' combine swirling string and woodwind parts with heavy guitar and organ in a more organic and cohesive fashion than before. Musically complex and intriguing without being nearly as pretentious as a capsule description might indicate, Release of an Oath is a remarkable piece of early American progressive rock." -- All Music
