Label: Morello Records
Release date: 01.06.2018
Digitally re-mastered two-fer containing a pair of albums from the legendary rockers. Released in 1967 and 1968 these Electric Prunes albums were certainly something different: Progressive, Psychedelic, Religious Rock. The Mass in F Minor album is best known for the song 'Kyrie Eleison' which was featured in the movie soundtrack of Easy Rider. Instrumentally the Prunes only appeared on the first three tracks. Jim Lowe, whose vocals were double-tracked for effect, later commented "David Axelrod was so far above what we as a garage band were able to deliver that outside musicians were used to complete the recording, including members of Canadian band the Collectors (later to become Chilliwack)". Release of An Oath is based on one of the most sacred Jewish prayers, the Kol Nidre which is recited on the eve of Yom Kippur. Both albums feature orchestra and top Los Angeles studio musicians.
