Earth Opera - S/T (1968)



Excellent debut album from 1968 by this Boston based US psych group who included David Grisman and combined elements of folk, country and rock music together and added a surreal psychedelic undercurrent. It's an interesting melange that at times resembles later Incredible Stringband. Well worth investigating. Freak Emporium

Hey, Lisa!
Thanks a lot! Do you have their second album? It has one of the great protest songs of the sixties, "The Great American Eagle Tragedy." It's kind of appropriate again!

the red sox are winning is also very timely... in a 2004 sort of way.
