Asylum "First And Last" LP
This is an excellent and almost unknown 9-track Hippie album, privately recorded/pressed in 1973. An original is extremely rare! The band was founded by Fork Union Military Academy school members in Virgina around 1970 and the music room of the school became their refuge from the predictable, regimented military school life. Thus was born the name ASYLUM. Shortly before graduating and after some line-up changes the last dollars were saved to make this album. The music in the Airplane & H.P.Lovecraft veins is true 60s Westcoast psychedelic, garage, folk stuff. The electric cuts such as "I want you every day", "Sometimes", "I will be free", "Deliverance" and "Help me be someone" contain great guitarwork (electric & acoustic), excellent drumming & organ, combined with male vocals and the crystal clear voice of Elaine Lazizza (Cronin). Acoustic tunes sometimes remind of Serpent Power (David & Tina Meltzer). Comes with detailed bio and cool photo insert.
