Reedición en vinilo del disco que podría pasar como el segundo álbum de United States of America. Psicodelia experimental muy avanzada a su tiempo, editado en 1969.



Classic 1969 psychedelic album, recorded after JOE BYRD’s departure from the band THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. This LP, created by Byrd and an extended group of West–Coast studio musicians, features some of the earliest recorded work in rock music utilizing extensive use of synthesizers and vocoder. The album is most noted for ’The Sub–Sylvian Litanies’, which opened Side A. This three–part suite has been described as "an entire acid trip in 11 minutes". Other album highlights include the equally psychedelic ’The Elephant At The Door’ and the politically–charged ’Invisible Man’. There’s extensive use of effects, delays, echoes, backwards vocals and other recording tricks, resulting in a breathtaking collection of songs.
