They tell us .....
Country Joe & The Fish’s “Electric Music For The Mind And Body” was the first genuine psychedelic long player to emerge from the San Francisco Bay Area rock scene. This album was the first where the sound in the grooves matched the new frontier philosophies of the 1960 s generation.
Berkeley-based Country Joe McDonald’s itinerant band of ex-folkies and rock neophytes forged an unsurpassed blend of satirical humour and socio-political insight with some of the most poignant, beautiful sounds.
Their April 1967 album debut “Electric Music” is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential records of its day. This remastered 2 CD edition contains the original mono and stereo mixes of the album, neither of which have been available since initial release in 1967.
The deluxe digipack package with 32-page booklet is stuffed with rare photos and memorabilia, and features in-depth liner notes by compiler Alec Palao, based on fresh interviews with the band members and associates.
