SLEEPY JOHN-S.T., LP, 1970, USA MP3/Flac


One of the top tier releases on the much vaunted but somewhat erratic archival psych collector label Rockadelic and certainly one of their better latter day discoveries, though the sequencing of this album wrongfoots this thundering Washington State hard rockish psych unit a bit by front-loading the dated organ-grinding "River" ahead of the snarling slab of inventively distended acid thunder that is "Nothing". True, you'll need to negotiate a small patch of enervated Procal Harum-ish organ mustiness on the direct heels of that, but stick with it, as what follows is a deep trove of worthiness, with the best bits of smoked out heaviness here evoking Lagger Blues Machine, Julian Jay Savarin and Clear Blue Sky.
