Synopsis

Album Description
Something very, very strange was afoot in the midwest during the 60's, and we're not talking about David Letterman's stint as a local TV weatherman. While L.A. was tiptoeing through the tulips, New York was groovin' and London was electrifying bananas, these brainiacs were booking a journey to Hades. Get your contact high from a safe distance with this intense, fuzz-ridden passel of ones and zeros. Our package contains the entire mind-bent original album plus 12 bonus cuts, a fat booklet jammed with rare photos and notes, and more!
 

CD Reviews

Excellent Psychedelic Album
Gary Bearman | Hollywood, CA United States | 07/10/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There were SO many "psychedelic" albums released in the U.S. (not to mention the rest of the world) between 1967-1969 that were spectacularly not worthy or stunningly average. This was neither. A litle gem from 1969, this rare album has been reissued on cd with a whole mess of bonus tracks. Some of the bonus tracks are better than others, but all of the original album is excellent and essential if your a conniseur of psychedelia. The nine minue Trip Thru Hell (Part 1) doesn't really seem very dark to me, but it is one of the cooler instrumentals to emerge from this era. Other standout tracks are Cold Spider and Underground Music, but really the whole thing maintains a high standard throughout which is an accomplishment from an album of any genre in my opinion. I would give this about 4 1/2 stars (5 reserved for those very rare genius albums) and recommend it highly!"
Crystal Ball Surprise

"What do you do when your favorite high school prom band (circa 1966) goes prog? You enjoy a band that writes songs with the most creepy chord progressions (think abruptly shifting minor chords when you least expect them) over vocals that recall the Association in their heyday (whispery and smooth).
Best tracks: Smooth as Silk, Dr of Philosophy, Underground Music, Fortune Teller's Lie, but ironically the best track of all is their heartfelt and crushing boy loses girl masterpiece, "Blow To My Soul", which will linger in your ears hours after all the other amazing and original tunes stop playing."
Crazy, crazy, crazy little album.
SHAI NOBELMAN | Ramat Gan Israel | 07/15/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ever had some really bad nightmers? Ones that made you sweat and cry, without really knowing why? Red and brown colours, witches, holes, moles, desert, trees, ugly trees. Crazy crazy crazy. C.A. Quintet's sole album, is a very special-nightmerish album. Some distinctive 67'American sound, full of weird sounds, brave expermantation and some cool combination of great melodies and weird instruments. Very uniqe!"
