An AMAZING recording! I think Roky is reading out of his book, Openers and putting music to the poems/songs. It's all religious stuff and really gorgeous. "Jesus is not a hallucinogenic mushroom..." you gotta love that man. Some of these songs HAVE NEVER been heard and only known in lyrical form (until now). This is a real find.
I think you Syd Barrett folks will want this. You'll know what I mean when you hear it. It's like a "Barrett" session only with religious lyrics but they're lyrics that Roky wrote. It's NOT "Church" music. This is a REAL find and addition to the Roky Catalog. I'm telling you, this is the REAL DEAL.
The quality is a master tape clone that has been tweaked with Cool Edit Pro. The mic is right up there on the stage with Roky and he even bumps it a few times. The quality is gorgeous.

A snapshot of a band in disentegration! Somebody left a cigarette burning on Roky's amp and he's about to kill them! Like, stomp their guts out. Then he says that somebody stole his fuzz-box and the shit REALLY hits the fan! You mess with Roky's fuzz-box and you're playing with fire. There's some cool spoken word stuff on this disc as filler.
