A magical psychedelic masterpiece from one of Japan's greatest natural wonders. I hope everyone has this one already, but if you don't, do yourself a favor and download this sucker NOW!!! This is amazing, wonderful, heavy, menacing, groovy music, the record to put on when you're trying to convince your parents to lighten up and smoke a joint with you. If everyone would just listen to this album over and over, every day, war would stop, politicians would give us all our money back, and we would all float away into a magical land of gumdrops and unicorns, forever tuned into the peppermint rainbow vibration.
Ah Hell, I'm feelin' generous today. Here's the first "proper" Flower Travellin' Band album, "Anywhere", released in 1970. Features awesome versions of Sabbath's "Black Sabbath" and King Crimson's "21st Century Schizoid Man". It rules.
