Originally released in 1976 in an edition of 300 copies, the sole album by Indianapolis’ Anonymous stands today as a high-water mark in psych-rock . The album combines the adventure of west coast ballroom groups, the 12-string majesty of Byrds, and breathtaking multi-part harmonies to forge something inimitable and one-of-a-kind, with powerful songs that pushed the limit and raised the bar at the same time. Long time top ten favorite for us, Anonymous’ Inside The Shadow is a true classic recommended for everyone into amazing rock records of all varieties.
This is the first officially licensed reissue from Machu Picchu Ltd. comes with sleeve notes from Aaron Milenski (co-author of the essential reference guide The Acid Archives), and recollections from Ron Matelic, Anonymous’ visionary songwriter. You can pick up the LP, sleeved in a tip-on jacket with a reproduction of the original lyric insert, from LightInTheAttic.net.
