People- Ceremony - Buddha Meet Rock lp (Phoenix)


Very cool Japanese psych reissue!

Distro says:
Nobody's sure if the musicians on this recording ever performed as a group or whether Ceremony was simply a studio super-project. Certainly, guitarist Kimio Mizutani had already enjoyed a certain amount of critical exposure following stints with Love Live Life + One and Masahiko Satoh's Sound Brakers, and it is Satoh's jazzy fuzz guitar licks that help to lift this album to a higher level. Unfortunately, this was the ensemble's only output, but this conceptual album is an absolute classic of hypnotic, psychedelic prog rock.

Internet says:
Excellent reissue from Japan of one of the world's rarest ($4000-$5000) and strangest and one of the best psychedelic albums (Teichiku, 1971), finally getting it's due in recent days; what is it? in essence, it is a Buddhist ceremony, complete with chants and finger cymbals and bells, but with great fuzz guitar chugging away over slide guitar and sitar throughout the proceedings; all this leads up to orgasmic female moaning over fuzz guitar towards the end of the album; luckily, liner notes explain everything in detail.
