NEW REPRESS IN HARD CARDBOARD SLEEVE + OBI + RESEALABLE OUTER SLEEVE.

Christopher were an underground acid rock trio featuring future Josefus drummer Doug Tull. They evolved from United Gas, a psychedelic band from Houston who rubbed shoulders with legends like The 13th Floor Elevators and Moving Sidewalks.

After relocating to Los Angeles – where they changed his name to Christopher – they played at numerous biker parties and recorded their sole album in 1970 for the Metromedia label.

It’s an amazing example of West Coast psychedelia / acid–rock featuring strong fuzz–wah guitar, great compositions and superb musicianship. It was housed in a terrific cover depicting the band at the same hippie crash–pad where some scenes from the "The Trip" movie were filmed.

One of the holy grails of American psychedelic–rock and the rarest album originally released by the collectable Metromedia label.

Remastered sound, original artwork, insert with liner notes.

Note: This is the only legitimate, fully–authorized vinyl reissue of Christopher in the current market. Beware of inferior, low quality bootlegs.

"One of the better LPs in the crowded sub–genre of proto–heavy westcoast hippierock, with mid–period Airplane and Cream the obvious influences. The lyrics are memorable strange" – Patrick Lundborg (Acid Archives)

"A great "lost" album from the USA underground, one that grows and grows with repeated listens. Lots of vibrato guitar riffs and creepy vocals a la Frumious Bandersnatch or Framework." – Clark Faville
