PTARMIGAN - S/T
[LP]    LABEL: LION PRODUCTIONS
25.00EUR

Hypnotic, mystical, hippie psychedelia dominated by long and largely instrumental tracks, all based on a complex interplay of recorder, hand drums and acoustic guitar. Ptarmigan recorded the basic tracks for what would eventually become their only album in 1972. It then took the bands producer and manager, renowned flautist Paul Horn, more than a year to find a label willing to release such unusual music. Finally, in 1974, Columbia Records released Ptarmigans album to critical acclaim, and minimal sales. The music of Ptarmigan is deep and authentic and intimate; it's reflective sounds are well suited to meditating on a landscape, an emotion, a bottle of wine, or maybe while staring at a flickering candle. Sometimes it is free-flowing and jazz-oriented; at other times it has the mystical feel of a shamanistic ceremony, fueled by Eastern-tinged harmonies. But in the end, this album is about the sea: Ptarmigan was, after all, from Vancouver Island, and the musicians were well-versed in the contradictory moods of the surrounding ocean. One of those hidden gems from the 70's that make life better when you discover them all these years later, rated by many as the best "folk/progressive" and/or "folk/psych" album ever made. As one contemporary review said, this is "music from musicians, for musicians, late-at-night, last joint music." Our Lion Productions reissue comes with a massive fold out insert which includes lyrics, liner notes from the band, and a multitude of photos and historical mementos. •Rated by many as the best "folk/progressive" and/or "folk/psych" album ever made. •First official vinyl reissue since it's debut in 1974. •From the master tapes. •Limited edition of 500 copies. •Huge insert comes with lyrics, liner notes from the band, and more
