St. John Green-1968 US

Kim Fowley to Mike Stax ("Ugly Things" magazine issue #19, 2001): "St. John Green is one of the great lost records…Somebody will reissue it someday and people will start crying and jacking off and smoking dope to it. It’s a great record. There’s only a handful of records that I’ve made that are great."
This Los Angeles area band release their sole and now rare album in 1968 on Flick-Disc label (FLS 45,001). Kim Fowley and Michael Lloyd co-produced this psychedelic opus with a "sanctified hippie vibe canyon music". This group has some strange songs about the fires of hell and spacemen from Venus alternate with some stoned sounding jams.
From this great album i chose three songs, "Canyon Women", "Devil And The Sea" and "Spirit Of Now". Enjoy!!!
