  • Blue aquarius

    Found an Lp by the disciples of Maharaj Ji , which I thought might be some eastern culty music , like those George Harrison things earnest young ladies used to accost you on the street with a million years ago. But I was wrong it's a bit like the Bob Crewe Generation with all smiley , smiley people in matching waistcoats. A couple of half way reasonable big band funky bits (it was 1974) and all on a Stax subsidiary . So my questions are anyone know of any more none obvious 'cult' music LP's waiting to be picked up?, What became of the Maharaj Ji,? Did the Jehovah's witnesses have a beat band? Does the devil have the best tunes..........

    Brucie Bonus !

    That's a great LP, it's in my chart for this month so you'll all be able to get a butcher's at the sleeve - there's one track "Foxfire" (I think it's called) that's excellent and gets purrs of approval from the Vultures who have heard it.

    Dr F - I've just finished creating the html for your next chart in the latest update, and it had me in stitches !

    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

      Really nice LP. I dig the funkier moments also, but I love the tune Oh Maharaji or something with the hippy dippy male voice and guitar, love the way it builds up very gently. Mark Res used to put this LP out and I think I got it off him.

      IMO, way better than anything silly boy George Harrison came up with at the time!

      Can we get a monk type smilie?

        Yeah 'Foxfire' is a funky little track. I think there's two tracks I like on that Blue Aquarius album but I've not listened to it in a while. I'll have to dig it out. That 'Golden Avatar' one that you see everywhere is popular with a lot of Vultures too. Lots of Moogy type stuff. There's some great stuff on US Christian label Tempo too. I've got some good Otis Skillings stuff and I know Lee's a fan too.

        There's a lot of obscure stuff on little labels if you search around. A recent one I found is 'Invisible Chains' by The Sunderland Quartet'. It's kinda gospel psych church organ music. It's great.

        Now if I can just find a copy of the 'Out Of Darkness' album.

            hahaha Don't I know it. I have that 'Sound And Vision' that they do 'Closing In On Me' on. Then Judy MacKenzie joins them for a track.

                I think I paid around fifteen english pounds for this, a few years back. I dont think records like this can build up or lose it's value, being sought after by a very small portion of the record buying public, i.e weirdy krishna type heads.

                Mostly, I'd guess this recod is snapped up on the hoof, like MystDrF did. As far as I know, this aint that hot, but Mark did used to put it out, bigging up the Foxfire track and the other funky track, cant recall thetitle,but then that's his job, right?

                  Judy Mackenzie does spoil things a bit on this onedoesn't she. I've had a cpouple of her own LP's and she does have a really nivce voice, and they are very relaxing to listen to. I think there was a reisue of the Out of Darkness LP a few years back (in the States?CD only?) and a later live recording which buy all accounts I've heard, was pretty grim.

                  There was also an album from a group called Jsohua which has a few fuzzed up guitar moments and a mellow laid back vibe. The best part of it is the liner notes which describes three hairy Jesus freaks stumbling out of the desert laying down some stoned hippy Jesus tracks and staggering back into the desert never to be heard of again. As the man says 'enduring mental image'.

                    I have a couple of these, it's been years since Ive found one though. I thought it was about an £8.00 LP, but ??

                    I can't find it, or think of the title, but there is a soul/fusion type Hari Krishna LP. remember it sounding ok.

                      other good funky/fusion ones are: avatar golden heart (or something like that)... there's a good one called something like 'moments in time' with a nutty uptempo funk track on it

                        the blue aquarius lp is quite easy to pick up, i think, probably as it's not that well known.

                        i had a a few spare copies and only managed to scrape about a fiver each for them on that there eBay machine.

                        or it could just be i didn't use enough *ill* break* rare* *ish* type phrases in the description...

                            I guess the overwhelming affection I reserve for this record has a lot to do with the innocuous and naive hippy vibe to the entire affair, which seems to just about come out smelling faintly of roses, which with a cast of around thirty thousand is a stroke of genius really. I mean, somebody HAD to get all tripped out or get all egocentric, going ott and spoiling things for all the happy, shiny people, right?

                            But they seem to get away with it!

                            That and the thought that even if this army of people were possibly temporarilly misguided, spiritually lost individuals, believing as they did, that somehow, if they cut a record all about some used car salesman reinvented as guru, they would demonstrate a more humane approach to life, thus creating a better place for all gods children to live in.

                            You cant knock it can you?

                            Well, can you?
