New lower pricing. "New CD reissue of the super-rare 1973 2LP set commemorating 'the 'Oz Days' benefit festival for the owner of Tokyo's legendary Oz Rock Cafe, which had been shut down after one too many drug busts.' (Japrocksampler). Without a single doubt, this is one of the holy grails of the Japanese early seventies lysergic psych scene, together with Speed Glue & Shinki, Sato Masahiko & Soundbreakers and People/Ceremony. Privately released in a tiny edition on the Oz Records label way back in 1973, the original artifact was and is till this day the only legitimate recording on vinyl to feature the Rallizes and Acid Seven, in addition to a side each from Minami Masato and the legendary Taj Mahal Travellers. Each of the four bands has a whole side to their disposal onto which they were allowed to open up the sonic floodgates to Valhalla. The music is completely stellar, mind-boggling and just jaw-droppingly great, leaving you, the listener, gasping for air on several moments while spinning this disc since your vital organs will just forget to function properly upon being exposed to this archeological sonic gem. Kosugi's clitter-clatter Fluxus-induced ramshackle psychedelic drone unit the Taj Mahal Travelers put down a stunning outer-worldly and almost transcendental performance, and the Rallizes venture into an ephedrine soaked sub-linear universe of ear ripping feedback and slowed down stroboscopic madness. Authentic packaging, with hand-stamped outer bag and gatefold insert. The Les Rallizes Denudes and Taj Mahal Travellers sides have been briefly reissued before -- here's the complete picture!"
