First ever vinyl reissue of this ¢Incredible Strange Music¢, private press (infamous) classic, championed by lovers of the wonderful & weird such as Jello Biafra. A time capsule which will send you back to the post–beatnik, pre–psychedelic / hippie scene from L.A.
With his long red hair and matching beard, Robbie The Werewolf – a folksinger of the frantic variety with a fetish for monsters – was a striking performer with a manic stage presence, acting out his songs as much as singing them. His set consisted of his original songs and uniquely reworked versions of folk standards, played on a beat–up twelve–string guitar. This inspired some of the most bizarre songs ever committed to vinyl: listen to "Count Dracula" and its proto–psychedelic, amazing echo effects or the insane DIY rocker "Rockin¢ Werewolf".
It was at The Wale Back in L.A one heady night in 1964, that Robbie¢s solo act was captured for posterity and released as a tiny private pressing. A few years later, Robbie was a founding member of L.A psychedelic band Clear Light. But that¢s another story...

"Unique artifact, made even more compelling by the fact that this guy later turned up in big time band Clear Light" – Patrick Lundborg (Acid Archives)
