Originally released 1969 on MPS Records Germany, which became world famous for Dave Pike´s "Noisy Silence Gentle Noise" from the same era. This is a true jewel for all "trip music" enthusiasts. Ahead of its time, the album is an eclectic mixture of Beat, Psychedelia and lysergic Jazz. The album is compared with the similarly styled debut of BURNIN' RED IVANHOE. 14 minutes title song "Maxwells Street" sounds like a continuation of the ROLLING STONES´ "Their Satanic Majesty´s Requests" progressing into ZAPPA´s Mothers of Invention´s musical freedom. Lars Bisgaard and Bent Hesselmann later played with the RAINBOW BAND. This CD comes with bonus tracks, digitally remastered from the original tapes and an informative booklet. Highly recommended!
