The "Rosetta Stone" of Psychedelic Music.
Dan Swan | Lincoln City, Oregon United States | 02/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Whenever one sees a movie from the 60's; the music almost always seems like a cheap imitation of the music that was actually being heard in those days. This record is the "Rosetta Stone" for psychedelic music. If you want to hear the real deal; this is it. Nothing has ever been it's equal in this genera. The music, blends blues, folk, and rock, in ways only dreamed of. Not even the Jefferson Airplane could match it's complex mix of old and "Never Heard of Before". "Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine" stands as a testement to where a love song can actually go, without really being a love song at all. The dense yet rich "Death Sound" is just plain creepy. "Super Bird" slaps "then" President Johnson right square in the jaw with some biting satire. And, "Grace" is a "TRIP" in every sence of the word. The sounds and words played hear are like a time capsule of it's time. Truly one of the GREAT albums from an entire decade of truly great music. Enter the "Electric Music for the Mind and Body" and be prepared to be forever changed.....for the better."
Classic psychedelic rock
FairiesWearBoots8272 | USA | 07/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The 1967 debut by Country Joe and the Fish is truly one of the most important albums to come out of the psychedelic era. It's a bit dated in spots, but overall, still, it's a great piece of 60's rock and probably the best example of the San Francisco sound at that time. The album's single, "Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine" is one of the strongest racks, a biting anti-romantic love song. Other highlights include the opener, "Flying High", the bluesy "Death Sound", the psychedelic instrumental, "Section 43", the rocking "Love", and the very trippy "Bass Strings", and "Grace". Instrumentally, the album is tight. Barry Melton's lead guitar is great, and the organ gives the album a mellow, trippy vibe. I would recommend Electric Music for the Mind and Body to anyone who is interested in 60's psychedelic rock, or anyone looking for something good to listen to while stoned. No one else need apply."
Psychedelia at its finest
Dan Swan | 08/02/1998

"Electric Music is perhaps the greatest psychedelic album of all time. Different aspects of the psychedelic experience(except those of the brown acid variety) are represented here from the crazed caotic energy of "Superbird", the deeply meditative( or stoned) "Bass Strings", the soulfully flowing "Section 43", to the sheer fun of this album. During a psychedelic experience, one is often able to percieve or rather hear colors in music. Electric music is replete with them and examples can be found on the organ solo of "Love" to Barry Melton's guitar solo on "The Masked Marauder". The mix of different tones on this album has been seldom paralled especially in the digital ninties. Chicken Hirsh's resonant tom tom drums, Bruce Barthol's rich bass, David Cohen milky organ and Barry Melton's guitar provide a nice rich timbre palete throughout the album particular evident on the instrumentals "Section 43" and "The! Masked Marauder". Barry Melton's vocals on "Love" sound like Satchmo on acid and add to the fun of this masterpiece. Country Joe once told me that the songs were arranged so that you would forget the tune you just hear before the one you were hearing. He also said that the band "tested" the album out themselves. Now if that's not quality control I don't know what is. An analog masterpiece for those curious to know what music sounded like before the digital age. A high recommend."
