"What a great value this CD is! You get two RARE 60's records on one disc. (Both were released in 1967). This is some of the coolest psychedelic music I have ever heard. "The freak Scene" is amazing stuff. I mean songs titles like 'Draft Beer, not Students" - how cool is that? Great trippy sounding tribal reverberated drums and guitars are throughout the album. Nice vocal effects, too..........And now on to the Devil's Anvil- This record is very unusual! It has middle eastern vocal melodies and instramentation mixed with 60's heavy blues/psychedelia. The band features Felix Pappalardi on bass (of Cream & Mountain fame). One thing to note: The lyrics are evidently sung in arabic, but this fact does not have an effect to detract from the music's compelling sounds in the least bit. One noteworthy track is the interesting cover of "Miserlou", featuring lead vocals (in english) by Felix Pappalardi. Do yourself a favor and check out these long since out of print recordings while they are still availible on CD!"
Sick second Part.

Freak Scene, the first part of this album (First 11 tracks or so...is take it or leave it.)
The Devil's Anvil could be one of the sweetest albums of all time. I guess it's the guitar palyer from Mountian. I think I read that somewhere. Anyways. These songs just flat out rip or are nice and mellow in a beautiful way. Played this for my friends and they all went out and bought it. The Devil's Anvil is essential. Yeah. They were from NYC, but this sound is global. It holds up aganist Erkin Koray's best. You will play the second part of this album constantly. Especially in summer. These songs sound sweet booming out of you windows...children, old people, people stop and can't beleive the sweetness. Just soaking it all in. I"m gonna go put it on right now."
