CHRISTOPHER
“What'cha Gonna Do?”

 

Deluxe LP reissue of one of the absolute rarest American psychedelic LPs of the 60s—and one of the best! every song is of the highest quality (all originals too), with an accessible sound the suggests that the band could have had more widespread success, had they ever made it out of their native South Carolina; the album was originally pressed in 1969 to use as a demo, but you'd never know it based on the overall quality of the production; the music demands your attention: well-crafted trippy lysergic lyrics about plastic capsules (and more), flanged vocals (among other effects), fine vocal harmonies, extended jamming, and a transcendent quality well expressed by the gutsy and creative guitar work. When you've got blistering acid rock mixed with acid blues, with a couple of thoughtful melodic songs for good measure, you've got a recipe for something special. Had Christopher been a major label release it would be a staple in every record collection. Now, on to the presentation... Highest quality mastering and pressing (done at Acoustech Mastering/RTI in California); the resulting LP is housed in a poly-lined sleeve, which is inside an ultra-heavy 1960's Project label style gatefold jacket, which is in a loose-fitting plastic sleeve. Top of the line pressing all the way. Limited by license to exactly 500 copies.
