Cold Sun-Dark Shadows-Texas psychedelic garage-NEW LP


COLD SUN- DARK SHADOWS - KILLER 60'S ACID PSYCH LP ULTIMATE 60'S ACID/PSYCH MASTERPIECE FROM TEXAS

Cold Sun - Dark Shadows LP

REISSUE New Sealed copy!

Cold Sun from Austin, Texas was recorded in 1970 in the legendary Sonobeat studios, where the Mariani and Johnny Winter first LPs were produced. The Cold Sun band are considered contemporaries of Velvet Underground and The Fugs, often listed as being in a similar vein but inspirations for this unique piece actually go back to the desperated, haunted Joe Meek. All songs lyrically express dark, mystic poetry with the true 60s psychedelic floating/ distorted fuzz spirit presented in short compact mini- epics along with several mind blowing long tunes, such as '' Ra- Ma'' (11 min), '' Here In The Year'' (9 min) and '' Fall'' (7 min).

This is the vinyl re-release of World In Sound´s limited collectors edition from the year 2008. Without any doubt Cold Sun are one of Austins milestones of the heavy-acid-psych and garage movement. The album was recorded in 1970 in the legendary Sonobeat studios, where the Mariani and Johnny Winter´s first LPs were produced. Cold Sun are considered contemporaries of Velvet Underground and The Fugs, often listed as being in a similar vein, but inspirations for this unique piece actually go back to the desperated, haunting sound of Joe Meek. All seven tunes lyrically express a dark and mystic poetry combined with the deep floating 60s psychedelic fuzz spirit, presented in compact mini-epics along with several mind blowing long tunes, such as "Ra-Ma", "Here In The Year" and "Fall".

Autoharp wizard Billy Miller eventually spearheaded Roky Erickson`s international debut as the Cold Sun band joined forces with Roky in 1974 and backed Roky´s Aliens on his famous albums and historical concerts. Carefully remastered from the mastertapes, this album will bring new rewarding listening experiences in expanded fidelity; contains a poster with bio and memorabilia. These recordings were back then only been released on acetate and were discovered by Dallas´ Rockadelic Records in 1991. Then “Dark Shadows” saw the light of day as a limited LP version, to become today one of the most important and revered Texas psychedelic underground gems from the early 70s!
