The Electric Lucifer (Remastered with extra tracks)
Bruce Haack's "The Electric Lucifer" is rightly considered one of the
masterworks of 20th century electronic music. Originally recorded in 1968
and 1969 (and released in 1970) it is an album both unique in conception and
superb in realization. An eminently listenable work where Pop-psychedelia
and Moog/musique-concrete sounds coalesce around Haack's central
metaphysical concept of "Powerlove", a force so powerful that it could end
war and unify humankind. Acclaimed upon its original release (one of Rolling
Stone's favourite albums of 1970 amongst many citations) yet unavailable for
over three decades, "The Electric Lucifer" is presented here for the first
time on CD! Remastered and restored from the original master tapes recently
discovered in the Columbia vault (and featuring two previously unreleased
bonus tracks), with hitherto unpublished photos from the original recording
sessions and exclusive liner notes and recollections. "The Electric Lucifer"
is your gateway to the profound yet playful universe of Bruce Haack, a
"far-out" place where flower-power and inner-space electronics collide!
