Info

The released stereo version of the debut album with 1968's The Family That Plays Together - that netted the hit I Got a Line on You - reveals a tale of two bands: The former seeking to express all the core elements in their sound, and the latter from an outfit that has found a way to make them gel. of Spirits recordings for the Ode and Epic labels between 1968 and 1972 and notably includes the entire mono. Fresh Garbage 2. Uncle jack 3. Mechanical World 4. Taurus 5. Girl In Your Eye 6. Straight Arrow 7. Topanga Windows 8. Gramophone Man 9. Water Woman 10. The Great Canyon Fire in General 11. Elijah Tracks 1 to 11 are their debut album Spirit in 'MONO' - released January 1968 in the USA on Ode Records Z12 44003 and June 1968 in the UK on CBS Records 63278. Between the years of 1968 and 1970, Spirit released four wonderful albums as well as a movie soundtrack that went unreleased at the time and some most interesting singles. Peaking at 31 on the Billboard charts on its release in January, 1968, It Shall Be marks the first ever appearance of the LPs mono version on CD, it being the only album by the band to see release in mono, with California and the rest of the band feeling mono was too restrictive for their sound. I will leave it to the ear of the listener to decide for themselves, although I tend to agree with California, despite the seemingly unquenchable thirst for music buyers for mono product. Listen free to Spirit It Shall Be: Ode & Epic Recordings 19681972 Fresh Garbage, Uncle Jack and more. 108 tracks 385:28. Learn more. Recent Listening Trend. The band proved to be rather influential in a flippant mode, serving up infectious rockers like I Got A Line On You covered by Alice Cooper with two of the groups he fronted which opens The Family That Plays Together from 1968, SPIRITs sophomore record and a step down from its kaleidoscopic predecessor, despite the rapturous presence of It Shall Be where. Deemed to be the bands magnum opus, the LP has a thematic edge to it, bursting to. It Shall Be Heres a teaser for our new 5CD remastered clamshell box set by the legendary American band Spirit. Posted by Richard, 3436. Newly re-mastered, this anthology features all of Spirits recordings for the Ode and Epic labels between 1968 and 1972 and notably includes the entire mono mix of the bands self-titled debut album appearing on CD for the first time, the complete soundtrack to the film The Model Shop, along with original 1968 stereo mix of The Family. That Plays Together, associated out-takes, singles and alternate mixes undertaken in 1991 for the Time Circle compilation. Spirit is the debut album by rock band Spirit, first released on January 22, 1968 by Ode Records. The experimental album was commercially successful, spending more than six months on the Billboard album charts, peaking at 31. The guitar part of Taurus is said to have influenced Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page in writing Stairway to Heaven. Led Zeppelin opened for Spirit on an American tour in 1968, and also borrowed.

Spirit were not English, they were pure west coast American, a band who’s members ranged in age from teens with Randy California, to over 40 with Ed Cassidy, this in turn meant that their backgrounds were diverse and varied. Spirit rose to the backdrop of the psychedelic 60’s, at a time when the war in Viet Nam kicked into high gear with the Tet Offensive, at a time when LBJ lied to the American public liberally, when LSD was inspiring many, both Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King were assassinated, student anti-government and anti-war protest existed everywhere across the globe, 1968 was the year Tricky Dick (Richard Nixon) won the Whitehouse, it was also the year of the Kent State shootings … and in ’69 America landed on the moon. The Summer of Love was over by the time Spirit’s fist album was released, the hippie movement was shattering like glass, and within that construct, if you but listen to the lyrics, Spirit encapsulated those final years, before the decade changed, along with everything we hoped and dreamed of.

Spirit’s self-title debut album is their only outing that’s worthy of deep consideration. It’s an album for which I never tire, owning the original mono vinyl copy (before the master tapes were lost to the winds), it’s an album for which I purchased the compact disc and then the SACD, wishing to hear every nuance of this epic recording. So why then do I find myself standing here, holding this boxed set in hand?

Spirit sounded and delivered like seasoned musical veterans from the very first note they ever laid to wax. Every member of this band brought something fresh and exciting to the table, laying out music that was intimate, while incorporating a feeling of immediacy, built on a sense of progressive cohesiveness and forward thinking. The Spirit album was dramatically gripping, light years ahead of its time, an album that is still far beyond what anyone else has ever done, a fusion of psychedelic rock and blues mixed with sustained yet controlled jazz visions. Surprisingly, Spirit’s sound gained a strength, on The Family That Plays Together, though there were many, including myself who didn’t quite know what to do with this tougher sound, with only the tracks “I’ve Got A Line On You” and “Aren’t You Glad” recalling the magical intoxication of the Spirit album from the same year. Clear proved to be a most dysfunctional endeavor to be sure, a one hit wonder with “Dark Eyed Woman,” though the haunting “So Little Time To Fly” also delivered a sincere psychedelic breath. Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus was also out of step, with only the songs “Nature’s Way,” and “Morning Will Come” floating on that translucent breeze, songs strong enough, along with “Animal Zoo” to make that connecting hypnotic visions to their first brilliant outing. Feedback offered nothing for me, it was the first Spirit album I’d not purchased, feeling that they were never going to flower into the psychedelic band Spirit had suggested they would be … with the question “So why am I here?” still unanswered.

If you don’t have the first five proper albums, perhaps that’s a reason to find your way to this collection. Though that being said, it’s far easier to simply purchase those albums individually, as this assemblage is aimed at the true Spirit fan, a collection that delivers those five albums, along with the soundtrack to The Model Shop. Also included is a copy of Spirit in mono, the way the world first heard this lustrous invocation, along with some outtakes, B Sides, singles and material that for whatever reason never made it onto the formal albums. What makes this collection special is that it’s been remastered, cleaned up and does sound great. There’s also a nice booklet included, filled with some rather uninspired information that anyone with any knowledge of the band will find rather flat. Though to answer the question as to why I find myself holding this box set, the answer is rather easy. For the first time I have all of the Spirit albums that contain music I love and treasure delivered with a production consistency, meaning that the volume level on all discs are the same, the EQ signal is consistent with no modular variations … this is where I gather together all of the material that rides most comfortably in my pack pocket and create my on sonically pure lossless collection of Spirits most haunting etherial psychedelic masterpieces, songs that will last for the the rest of my life without any filler. And it would seem that others are doing this as well, realizing that for the most part, Spirit were an amazing psychedelic singles band, as this set is being traded on the secondary market already at very reasonable prices.

So, take this set for what it is, or like me, use it to enhance the tripped out couch-bound signature sound of Spirit as a whole, and not get the feeling that splinter groups such as Jo Jo Gunne are waiting in the wings.

*** The Fun Facts: “Uncle Jack” is a powerful yet psychedelic rock song referencing Ed Cassidy who was the stepfather to teenage guitarist Randy California, built around acid induced imagery.

“The Great Canyon Fire In General” reference the 67’ fire that consumed much of Topanga Canyon, the home to many of the best hippie rock n’ rollers.

“Gramophone Man” referenced the inter connection of drugs and music, with the word ‘Gram’ (used for measuring substances) and ‘ophone’ the second syllable in gramophone (a vintage record player). Oddly enough, rather than being wondrous and enlightening, as drugs were intended to be, the song displays a sinister aspect, with the Gramophone Man standing in as the drug dealer.

As reported on sh.tv, "Topanga Windows" (the mono version) is missing its introductory chord, for some odd reason. (It's intact on other releases of the mono mix.)
