AZ L4P1 HIRAM ABIF song download from King Solomon's Temple by American Zen
The Hippy Coyote wanted a song similar to his psychedelic heros, Quicksilver Messenger Service.
In this bluesy, stoney, echoey guitar song, Coyote tells the story of the architect, Hiram Abif, pushing the Jewish masons along as slaves. Their discontent mounts and becomes unsettling at the end of the song as they confirm their desire to escape and kill the head architect.
This song is from the album, LEVEL 4 = KING FU COWBOY Part 1. The rock opera story is called, KING SOLOMON'S TEMPLE.
Record producer, Richard Del Connor, realized during the recordings, that this album had several references to King Solomon's Temple, but it was still about the life and times of THE HIPPY COYOTE, of American Zen.
In May, 2010, PART 1 became KING SOLOMON'S TEMPLE and the mixing was completed. Coyote recorded the voices of Jubila, Jubilo, and Jubilum, the murderers, along with vocals for King Solomon, King Tyre, and Hiram Abif.
All instruments and vocals by The Hippy Coyote except for song, "ELAINE," from the COYOTE IN A GRAVEYARD rock opera recorded in 1989.
Produced by Richard Del Connor for Shaolin Records.
