People – Ceremony-Buddha Meet Rock

Only 1 left in stock


Reissue, originally released in 1971. A monster on its own Ceremony-Buddha Meet Rock still is one of the most enigmatic records to have come out of the early seventies Japanese underground. Composers Yusuke Hoguchi and Naoki Tachikawa are the main conspirators here. The album is clearly informed by the flower power counterculture, is full-on mysticism — with Buddha chants all over the place — and trippy guitar playing make room for an otherworldly experience. The album opens with a rendition of “Holy Thursday” lifted from David Axelrod’s masterpiece Song of Innocence (1968) and sets the mood for a series of ancestral musical performance. Released on Teichiku Records in 1971, this album still stands as one of the most original pieces of art coming from the eastern side.
