Super boneheaded blooz sludger recorded at American Studios in Memphis by Chips Moman...
in the steamy backroads of Texas and deep-fried at a Memphis recording
studio, Joseph’s Stoned Age Man was served up like a sizzling hot
rattlesnake appetizer slathered in fuzz-blooz grease in 1969. Legend has
it that the titles of eight of the album’s nine songs came before they
were written on the spot, which speaks volumes for the talents of Joseph
(aka, Joseph Longeria) — who A&R man Steve Tyrell signed to Scepter
Records after witnessing the Lone Star State bluesman gig with B.B.
King and T-Bone Burnett. Brandishing his guitar like a Cro-Magnon’s
club, Joseph mixes his fuzzy licks with meat-grinder vocals as he loudly
ruminates of fattened snakes, fish heads, mountains, cavemen and gumbo
in the maddest peyote hallucination Alley Oop never had. Long revered
among collectors, this fine slab o’ rock gets its first-ever reissue
from the original masters, pressed at RTI onto 180 grams of cold hard
vinyl that’ll rip your turntable from its hinges." - SUNDAZED
