Kalacakra "Crawling To Lhasa" PIC-LP
Kalacakra's 'Crawling to Lhasa' is one of the few German psychedelic classics. Their 1972 LP has become such an attractive collectors' item (today's value is 400 euros in mint condition) that several bootlegs have appeared on the market. The legitimate LP release on the Garden of Delights label is limited to 1000 numbered copies (sold out since years), comes in a deluxe gatefold cover and contains a 4-page colour insert in LP size, featuring a detailed history (in German and English language) of the Duisburg band together with a detailed discography, cover and label repros, and numerous photographs, which reflect the sombre, stoned atmosphere of the record in a perfect manner. 'Raga no. 11' is probably the best track, with 'Nearby Shiras' reflecting the most psychedelic aspect of the band's music. It is about the Black Plague raging in this Persian town hundreds of years ago. The Picture Disc edition comes now without bonus tracks but with an insert of 8 pages and is also limited to 1000 hand-numbered copies.
