Amazing record from 1979, just reissued on Italian label Die Schatchel.

I was going to wait until my copy arrives, and add more detail from the accompanying booklet / liner notes, but what you really need me to do is let you know this is out there, rather than precis and read out loud. I am interested to learn, though, why the record is referred to as “occult” (other than it`s a fancy word for “secret”) and why the reissue sleeve is so radically different from the original, Art Deco palms exchanged for a mountain sketch, that could be Fuji, and an all-seeing eye.

Big thank you to Tako at Redlight Records for the initial tip off, and to Boomkat for keeping me up to date on when stuff like this is released.
