Holy Modal Rounders

Indian War Whoop
1967 Italian Stereo Reissue, On Base Records. Exact Year Unknown. White Label With S.I.A.E. Stamp On Label. Housed In Thin European Jacket. Slight Cover Wear, With Corner Rubs And Crease Marks Along Spine Side Of Cover. Peter Stampfel And Steve Weber Obviously Loved American Folk Music As Much As Any Of The Kids Who Had Their Head Turned Around By Harry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music In The 1950s, But Unlike The Many Musicians Who Paid Tribute To America's Musical Past By Trying To Re-Create It As Closely As Possible, As The Holy Modal Rounders Stampfel And Weber Opted To Drag The Music Into The Present, Shrieking And Giggling All The Way. Even By The Standards Of The Holy Modal Rounders' First Two Albums, 1967's Indian War Whoop Is A Thoroughly Bizarre Listening Experience; Loosely Structured Around The Between-Song Adventures Of Two Seedy Vagabonds Named Jimmy And Crash, Side One Veers Back And Forth Between Neo-Psychedelic Fiddle-And-Guitar Freakouts And Free-Form (And Often Radically Altered) Interpretations Of Traditional Folk Tunes Such As "Soldier's Joy" And "Sweet Apple Cider," While Side Two Is Devoted To Like Minded Originals (Including A Couple Songs From Their Friend Michael Hurley, Who Would Later Join The Group).
