 SAM GOPAL-Escalator-'69 heavy psychedelic-Lemmy-NEW LP COL+7"

Originally released on Stable Records in 1969, this album was a very rare collectable record until it became available again.

Produced by Trevor Walters, the album features Ian Willis (a.k.a. Lemmy ¿ of later Hawkwind and Motorhead fame) as composer of some intriguing heavy psychedelic tunes like the title track and ¿The Sky Is Burning¿ and it is a very enjoyable piece of music throughout all the grooves.

Sam Gopal took up the tabla in Malaysia at the age of 7, before coming to study music in Britain in 1962.

By the mid 1960’s, Indian music was exerting a huge influence on Western rock, most notably on the Beatles (with Indian influences all over ‘Revolver’ and ‘Sergeant Pepper’), but also on the Rolling Stones (exemplified by Brian Jones playing sitar on ‘Paint It, Black’) and the Moody Blues, for whom Justin Hayward played tabla and sitar on the ‘In Search Of The Lost Chord’ album.

The time was right for a genuine exponent of Indian music to come to the fore. Sam Gopal put together his first group, ‘Sam Gopal’s Dream’ in 1966. They quickly became a feature of the psychedelic scene, playing at the 14 Hour Technicolour Dream at Alexandra Palace in 1967 and sharing stages with such giants as Pink Floyd, the Move and Jimi Hendrix.
