The Lightmen plus One; Energy Control Center


Lightmen plus One, Energy Control Center.
Lightin' Records 1972.

Speechless. A big thank you needs to go out to both Quimsy and El Goog, for coming up with the good stuff. Both these guys sent over rips in no time at all. The artwork is from El Goog's zip, the sounds from Quimsy. The whole thing is a total stormer. There's a link in the comments for the incredible 7" All Praises to Allah (Parts 1 and 2) Quite possibly the best track i've ever heard, and another treat from El Goog.

1; Wench
2; Blues for Curtis
3; Cold Bair
4; Energy Control Center
5; Leo
6; Jupiter's Child
7; The Phantom

Enjoy

Do you need the Japanese cd release in particular? I have an old rip from a friend, but I'm not sure of the source. Let me know. I have a couple of other releases I wanted to ask you about anyway.

el goog said...

Yes I have, a sealed, reissued vinyl. But I'd seen it before in blogland, so I did not rip it. (sorry now I don't where it is.)
If you can wait til I rip, I'll give its virgin.

@ anasarca
wow, it's looking promising! any rip will do, just really fancy having a listen. what are these other releases? can i help

@ el goog;
you're lucky to have that sealed re-issue, hold fire with the scissors in case a rip turns -up.

boogieman said...

Thanks guys,it's an amazingly groovy album. How did it remain "undiscovered" for so many years?
By the way, they've been likened to TRIBE, Pharaoh etc. but am I the only one to hear shades of the Crusaders in their playing?
Cheers
