Asylum - First And Last (US-Private, 1973)


Never offered before original copy! Extremely rare!


Here is Don's comment about this album which was released a couple of years ago on the German World in Sound label 

"This is an excellent and almost unknown 9- track Hippie album,  privately recorded/ pressed in 1973. The band was found by <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Fork Union Military Academy school members in Virgina around 1970 -  the music room of the school became their '' refuge''  from the predictable,  regimented military school life... Thus was born the name '' ASYLUM''  -  a place of refuge. Shortly before graduating and after some line up changes the last dollars were saved to make this album. The music in the '' Airplane''  & H.P.Lovecraft vains is true 60´s Westcoast psychedelic,  garage,  folk stuff .The electric cuts such as,  '' I want you every day'' ,  '' Sometimes'' ,  '' I will be free'' ,  Deliverance'' ,  '' Help me be someone''  contain,  combined with male vocals the crystal clear voice of Elaine Lazizza (Cronin),  great guitarwork (electric & acoustic),  excellent drumming & organ. Acoustic tunes sometimes remind of '' Serpent Power''  (David & Tina Meltzer)."


Ex to M- record with some surface scuffs. The cover has some light ring wear on front, some spine wear but overall almost Ex.


A great chance to own a very rare piece!
