Description

REPRESSED! HARD CARDBOARD SLEEVE + OBI + RESEALABLE OUTER SLEEVE.

Christopher were an underground acid rock trio featuring future Josefus drummer Doug Tull. They evolved from United Gas, a psychedelic band from Houston who rubbed shoulders with legends like The 13th Floor Elevators and Moving Sidewalks.

After relocating to Los Angeles - where they changed his name to Christopher - they played at numerous biker parties and recorded their sole album in 1970 for the Metromedia label. It's an amazing example of West Coast psychedelia / acid-rock featuring strong fuzz-wah guitar, great compositions and superb musicianship.

It was housed in a terrific cover depicting the band at the same hippie crash-pad where some scenes from the "The Trip" movie were filmed. One of the holy grails of American psychedelic-rock and the rarest album originally released by the collectable Metromedia label.

Remastered sound, original artwork, insert with liner notes.

Note: This is the only legitimate, fully-authorized vinyl reissue of Christopher in the current market. Beware of inferior, low quality bootlegs.

"One of the better LPs in the crowded sub-genre of proto?heavy westcoast hippierock, with mid-period Airplane and Cream the obvious influences. The lyrics are memorable strange" - Patrick Lundborg (Acid Archives)

"A great "lost" album from the USA underground, one that grows and grows with repeated listens. Lots of vibrato guitar riffs and creepy vocals a la Frumious Bandersnatch or Framework." - Clark Faville
