Mid-line reissue of this rather exceptional 1971 eccentric psych album, originally issued by Phoenix International Records. Their lone album from the time (briefly reissued on LP by Rockadelic a number of years ago & not to be confused with the lesser demos album, Beyond Folkstone Prism, which RD put out as a limited LP release shortly thereafter). Based in Arizona, the group was led by Ken Walker (vocals, guitar, melodica, zither, electric piano, audio effects, organ, signal generators), who had a unique vision for an orchestral/psychedelic rock streamline (he mentions attempting to create an album that sounded like the Beach Boys mixed with Alice Cooper and the Moody Blues without the strings)."This unlikely and delicate blending of influences as diverse as the Chantays, Lee Hazelwood and Ennio Morricone with Quicksilver Messenger Service and the Electric Prunes might cause the Folkstone Prism listener -- like a delirious man in a cave lined with fool's gold -- to doubt his senses." -- Jud Cost.
