Spirit (1996) (RMST) (EPIC RECORDS) (15 TRACKS)

Album Description:

Spirit''s 1968 self-titled, eponymous debut album is one whose multifarious experimentalism owes a lot to the contemporary successes of The Beatles'' SGT. PEPPER''S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND and Pink Floyd''s THE PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN. Having released SPIRIT, the group quickly established themselves as a band with few peers. Their''s was a unique and inventive sound which clearly distinguished them from all others and instantly drew attention from critics accross the country. A moody, passionate record, SPIRIT is a revealing early chapter in the story of one of the truly great rock bands of the early 1970''s. 

Additional Information:

The song "Fresh-Garbage" has been sampled in the Pink song "Feel Good Time", found on the soundtrack of CHARLIE''S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE. "Fresh Garbage" was also used as the title (and theme music) of a rock music program on BBC Radio London in the early 1970''s.

The guitar riff that occurs about :43 into "Taurus" is said to have influenced Led Zeppelin''s Jimmy Page in ''composing'' his famous intro to "Stairway to Heaven". Led Zeppelin opened for Spirit on an American tour in 1968 and a side by side comparison of the two pieces reveals some similarities. Zeppelin also borrowed the riff of "Fresh Garbage" during early live performances of the song "As Long as I Have You".

Spirit: Mark Andes (bass, vocals); Randy California (bass, guitar, vocals); Ed Cassidy (percussion, drums); Jay Ferguson (percussion, keyboards, vocals); John Locke (musician) (keyboards).

Recorded on November 11th through 17th, 1967.
