Pink Floyd and The Incredible String Band.
This time we finish off the remarkable cover notes on the back cover of the “Zabriskie Point” LP from where we left off last time:
“It was not an easy task for us to assemble together the musicians heard on this recording. Yet, each is as revolutionary within their field as Antonioni is within his. The Grateful Dead, for example, was one of the earliest proponents of the sound of San Francisco, which is one of the locales in “Zabriskie Point”. Pink Floyd is internationally known for its experimentation with new forms of sound and music. As creators of a restful, idyllic musica-setting [sic], the Youngbloods are beyond comparison. Kaleidoscope has woven the ethnic music of areas like the Middle East into its basic rock style. And the Rolling Stones, though not heard on this album, make an important contribution to the film, and are considered to be one of the most exciting groups in the rock field.
“The result is more than the completion of a motion picture score or the release of a soundtrack album. The result is “Zabriskie Point”. The film and the music are not really meant to be understood, but to be lived. Let the music on this album happen to you, and you’ll hear, understand, and experience what I mean.”
Wow. The swinging 60s had still not quite died off in 1970, had they?
