Product Description

GROUP 1850-PARADISE NOW-'69 DUTCH heavy psych-NEW LP PURPLE

GROUP 1850-

Paradise Now

NEW LP

REISSUE

Repress on purple vinyl.

Recorded, edited and mixed over one long Red Lebanon hash-fueled weekend in October 1969, Group 1850's second album, 'Paradise Now', remains one of the high-water marks of European psychedelia. A wide-eyed, wide-open, synapse-electrifying set of songs, it sounds like the transmissions of a burnt-out satellite spinning through the galaxies of inner space. Group 1850 leader Peter Sjardin skillfully edited the group's free-flowing improvisations into eight cohesive, yet distinctly different tracks, part 'Saucerful Of Secrets', part 'Electric Ladyland', part Guru Guru, part Can circa 'Monster Movie'-era. The album was originally released on Discofoon, the label owned by the Dutch department store chain V&D. It has since become a highly sought-after collectors item. This reissue is packaged in a lavish gatefold sleeve with the original cover artwork, supplemented by rare photos and liner notes by Mike Stax of Ugly Things magazine.


GROUP 1850 - PARADISE NOW ¿ 1969 (DUTCH) heavy psych


The group plays it spacier and lighter on their second album, with plenty of soaring guitars and keyboards and more diffuse compositions.

The attractiveness of the ethereal sound ...

Peter Sjardin (flute, organ, vocals)
Beer Klaasse (drums)
Daniël van Bergen (guitar, piano)
Ruud van Buuren (bass)


Great psych rock, with jazzy and spacey influences.
