Taj Mahal Travellers, The – “July 15, 1972” – [Klimt]
Thee Opinataur 4/8/2013 A Library
Live recording of concert at Sohgetsu Hall, Tokyo, July 1972, this is the first album ever released by the Japanese electronic drone group headed by violinist composer Takehisa Kosugi. This is avant-garde minimalism with a distinctive Japanese sensibility. Side A is drug induced weightless psychedelic trip that moans and trips through the badlands. Deep droning groans from the contrabass lead the way on this dreamy trip. B1 – Eerie hypnotic throat singing featured giving way to a freeform dreamland of no return. B2 – Electronic violin scratches the underworld, a meditative homily to those who failed to seek their true calling.
