farm band Farm Band (CD, £14.25)label: Bella Terra
In the late 1960s, counterculture icon Stephen Gaskin made a name for himself teaching a weekly class on the meaning of the psychedelic experience in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury District. At the start of the 70s, he led a hippie exodus to Tennessee, where he created The Farm, just about the only successful hippie commune still standing. This is the first album by Gaskin and the Farm Band who fall somewhere between the Grateful Dead and Jethro Tull performing long psycho blues suites with good guitar solos, flute and violin (several tracks last more than eight minutes). They released four albums between 1972 and 1977. Limited remastered papersleeve edition. Mini poster included.
