mo First Album (180g vinyl LP, £26.75)label: Anazitisi Records
'First Album' is a very rare album, originally released in a small edition of 200 only copies. This is the first ever reissue and comes as a faithful reproduction for the label, the cover and the number of copies. So almost 40 years later, 200 more copies of this gem come out. Licensed by Moe and boosted with one extra unreleased track. Moe Whittemore (aka Mo), was the founder of the Indianapolis 700West Studios and the same-titled record label. Moe was responsible for recordings of Primevil, Zerfas, Buccaneer, Dan Modlin & Dave Scott, Sailor, etc. This album appeared in 1976, and as its subtitle suggests it was a kind of collection/promotional item for Moe's and 700West works. Moe plays keyboards, piano and/or the homemade synth on all the tracks while a cast of fellow musicians (from Zerfas, Primevil, Peddler, Jubal, Sequoiah...) helped him to build this tough to define musically album. Psychedelic, acid freakout, space, funky soul, progressive, electronica, avant garde, folk, americana; Name it whatever you prefer and all together at once (if you want to be precise) and you have the right music style to categorize this one of a kind LP, which is really recommended to all the psych heads. Includes one bonus and 4 page insert with notes, trivia, photos and lyrics. Limited to 200 copies.
