Joe Byrd and The Field Hippies - The American Metaphysical Circus

I was lucky enough to find an original sealed copy of this 1969 masterpiece. Loaded with heavy jams, synthesizers, vocoders, and studio experimentation, Joe Byrd's first release since his departure from "The United States of America" proves to be a psychedelic hit. "Kaylani" is one of the trippiest intro tracks I've ever heard. I'm lovin' it
