Book Of Am - Part One (1978)

Great French folk-psych record!
This international group lived as a commune on the Spanish island of Deya & were acquaintances of Daevid Allen and Gilly Smith. their album is an attractive journey into the more mystical realms of hippie-folk, somewhere between Robin Williamson, Daevid Allen and some tracks by the German band Popol Vuh. Many songs have a strong Eastern touch with tamboura, acoustic guitar, flute and male/female vocals. This album will satisfy anyardent fan of psych-folk! Some members of Book Of Am might have helped out on Daevid Allen's solo albums from this period. Taken from "Scented Gardens Of The Mind" by Dag Erik Asbjornsen

My no1 fave album I stepped on and now I find it here six months later! Anyone who downloads this album may be sure n-e-v-e-r to find it for sale anywhere. There's a double vinyl reissue of it coming up, very limited pressing I've heard, including the band leaders 20 page booklet originally too large for inclusion with the first issue back in '78. Any chance of seeing Extradition, Perry Leopolds first, These Trails or Ptarmigan uploaded soon? Anyone who has those to trade, drop me a line

Thanks and god bless Lisa!
