Just when you thought you couldn’t squeeze another record into your collection (especially in the crowded “S” section!), the fine folks over at Vadim Music come out with this psych/baroque masterpiece — Stringtronics Mind Bender! Mixing a bit of 1972 (the year of its release) and 1772 (the year of Harpsichords and shit!), Mind Bender definitely lives up to its name. Think of the music as the missing link between David Axelrod’s “Song of Innocence” and Ennio Morricone’s Sergio Leone period and some Command Records exoticism. Need some visual cues? Well, some of the tracks were used in 1973 European erotic film SCORE. Now that’s smooth.
This reissue is on 180-gram vinyl and is limited to 1,000 copies (each of which is hand numbered)!
