PETER GRUDZIEN: The Unicorn + The Garden of Love (SUBLP23) 2 x LP
First time exact vinyl reissue of this rare, legendary and highly praised urban hillbilly one-man-band “outsider artist” LP from 1974. The “first psychedelic country concept” album features bluegrass mountain music Americana from the twilight zone mixed with tape effects, musique concrete, fuzz guitar, surreal lyrics imagery and themes from religion, death, sex and other timely concerns. Also included is a bonus LP record, “the Garden of Love”, with some truly amazing and haunting unreleased material spanning the years 1950s-70s. The Garden of Love LP includes, amongst others, a song about wandering around in the desert eating peyote. All the music has been carefully transferred from the master tapes and is a facsimile of the original album (previous CD only reissues contained altered mixings).

This release features a gatefold sleeve with the original “The Unicorn” artwork + loads of photos and liner notes. Gatefold LP sleeve. Limited edition of 500 copies only.
