This superb collection of acid-influenced guitar rock originally appeared in 1970 and has languished in underserved obscurity ever since. Produced in L.A. by legendary engineer Bill Halverson (Crosby, Stills & Nash, Cream, the Grateful Dead), it's heavily imbued with West Coast influences and features superb musical interplay throughout. The band supported acts including Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd, but proved sadly short-lived. The album makes its long-awaited CD debut here, complete with both mixes of their sole non-LP 45, making it an obligatory purchase for all devotees of U.S. psychedelia.

"Another album I bought back in the 60's or early 70's, a concept album in a lot of ways, a very solid total sound, good vocals and the total sound of the band was solid, they were kind of big on the west coast but couldn't carry the rest of the country, they had a earlier album but it was on a small label and is almost impossible to find, something happened and they self destructed, too bad, I really liked them."
Better than average.

"While it is nearly impossible to capture in words the heady experience that was the 60's to mid-70's, we hear all the time about those oh-so-rare over the top psych albums. Today we rush to get them and can be very disappointed when we actually listen to them. Maybe because you just can not replicate the times and atmosphere--and the drugs. But Blue Mountain Eagle would play all the time and were friendly and open. Beisdes that, they made a really decent LP. It certainly was around everywhere for years for those vinyl hounds who were looking. And it is a better than average album. Good players who went on to play with all sorts of interesting bands, Arthur Lee's Vindicator, Augie Meyers, Dewey Martin's Medecine Ball to name a few."
