Music - 1971
One of the great lost morsels of heavy early 70s psychedelia, Music is the work of Linhart's short lived band (also named Music) and the crack engineering of Hendrix' main knob twiddler Eddie Kramer. Tastefully overflowing with wild grooves, a bevy of stereo effects and little psychedelic explosions of guitar, the album as a whole overshadows its counterparts thanks to ultra clean production and Linhart's tremendous sill as a songwriter. Folk rock at points, mild fusion at others, Music never falls into formulaic wanking or takes itself too seriously, and considering the talent on this record, that alone is a giant accomplishment. Instead, you've got a fun, funky, head swirling masterpiece that for one reason or another fell off the radar and out of print not long after it was released.
